3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 13 April 2009
This review is from: New Bistro (Hardcover)
'New Bistro' looks lovely, has great, characterful photographs and a nice chatty tone, but it's more of a travel guide for those who like eating in nice places than a cook book for foodies. There are a couple of excessively generous references to the Michelin Guide (as though they were sponsors) and the introduction to the book sets a 'lifestyle' emphasis which is reinforced by the slightly casual recipes. You get the impression that these haven't been tested at home, or selected on the basis of any idea about who might read the book or want to use it. At one extreme they include canned and prepared ingredients that some will prefer to avoid, and at the other, a bizarre recipe for a whole turbot poached in champagne. If you're after a really good book about how to cook the best of French regional cooking, Anne Willan's Country Cooking of France is the book for you.Country Cooking of France
