A must For Cooks,
This review is from: French Provincial Cooking (Paperback)
This is one of those cookery books that's a pleasure to read, aside from being a very useful resource for anyone looking to recreate classic French dishes.
Lots of text to read for interested foodies with good descriptions of essential cooking techniques, standard equipment and practical kitchen advice. If you are looking for an easy-to-follow recipe book with plenty of colourful pictures, this might not be the best introduction to French cuisine, but for amateur cooks with some basic knowledge of technique it's a must for your kitchen bookshelf.
I have the smaller paperback version and the text is pretty small, and it's thickness makes it hard to prop open and read whilst cooking, so some people might prefer to buy a larger print version (I think one exists).
