5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect pot of memories, 14 Dec. 2006
This review is from: French Provincial Cooking (Paperback)
I still have my first copy given me in 1975. Its very well thumbed! A great read, written like a recipe journal, in an easy flowing style, with a no nonesense approach to ingredients - only the best and freshest is tolerated, cooked to bring out the best in the ingredients- you get out what you put in - and a ton of butter! A palpable feeling of nostalgia pervades these recipes. Having cooked with fresh ingredients in many countries, I understand completely why ED warns us against attempts to recreate authenticity. It cannot be done. All we can do is turn the pages and let her memories guide us through all our yesterdays....our tongues savouring the memory of perfect carrot soup or pot au feu cooked up 27 years ago on the camping stove in a field in the Dordogne as we watched the sun set,sniffed the dew in the air and.....Ahhh, those were the days.....
