This review is from: Essence: Recipes from Le Champignon Sauvage (Hardcover)
A fabulous book with the intention to inspire. It has a very down to earth basis but will bring your cooking level up a notch with elegance and style. There are suggestions how to adapt recipes with other ingredients, which I love. It has a good essential store cupboard section including delicious pickled apple and another detailed section on foraging. In the starters section it also has nibbles, the gougeres cheesy biscuits will impress. Some recipes have unusual combinations of flavours with out going overboard but will entice you to experiment as well. Well worth buying as it is a step further on from the books with basics, definitely an essential book with essential flavours!
