5.0 out of 5 stars Impress your friends!, 9 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Rick Stein's French Odyssey (Hardcover)
I received a grand total of three of these books for Christmas (which just shows how well my husband and friends know me!)and was delighted as it was definitely on my Christmas list.
Having spent the weekend actually using it I can honestly say it is brilliant. The recipes are impressive enough to become a talking point at dinner parties (we made the little ragu of seafood) but easy enough to follow. Once tasted you can't understand how you used to make do with pasta or boring sausages and mash!
The pictures are beautiful - just make sure you don't read it when you are hungry! And each time you pick it up you are inspired to get in the kitchen - even though my kitchen is actually a building site at the moment and my City job doesn't enable me the time spend hours in the kitchen. It is a total pleasure and real relaxant to follow Rick's wonderfully traditional recipes. Together with the glorious photography and imagery of France it is a joy.
I highly recommend this to lovers of France and lovers of food!
