5.0 out of 5 stars French cooking everyone can manage, 14 Sept. 2011
This review is from: French Brasserie Cookbook: the Heart of French Home Cooking (Hardcover)
I am an avid collector of cookery books, love eating good food but am a terrible cook and have very little patience in the kitchen... I've always been put off attempting French food before as it usually seems to involve long complicated instructions with lots of cream, flour and bain maries (all of which scare me rigid in a recipe) However with this book I can not only follow the recipes easily but have actually managed to make a couple of dishes with an unusual degree of success!! The beef bourguignon was gorgeous and so was the pan fried calves liver with capers, parsley and chervil (I live in a flat and went out and bought a herb planter at the weekend inspired by the recipes in the book - I've never used chervil before) There are also some fabulous vegetarian recipes which I was surprised to find as I'd always thought 'vegetarian' was a dirty word in France. The book looks good too, quite a classy exterior and lots of glossy photos inside, with some nice commentary and tips by Daniel alongside the recipes (which aren't 'fancy' French but what I would imagine good French home cooking is like) Would make a great gift but you'll want to keep it for yourself!
