Convinces even beginners that it's possible to make guest-worthy food in a small kitchen...[The book] comes directly from the cooking classes Patricia Wells gives at her homes in Paris and Provence; the lineup includes plenty of uncomplicated dishes that have been tested within an inch of their lives.--The New York Times Book Review

"Patricia Wells is a culinary legend who has lived and cooked in France for more than 30 years. Her most recent book is The French Kitchen Cookbook. Reading it left me hungry, and with a great case of wanderlust."--The Splendid Table

Patricia Wells is a culinary legend who has lived and cooked in France for more than 30 years. Her most recent book is The French Kitchen Cookbook. Reading it left me hungry, and with a great case of wanderlust. --The Splendid Table"

Long an award-winning cookbook author and restaurant reviewer...Patricia Wells also holds culinary classes in her Paris and Provence residences. Join her via delightful stories, enticing photography and distinctive dishes. There are her French favorites...But Wells' years of world travel also brings Italian and Asian dishes to her table.--The Post and Courier

From the Back Cover

A master class in fresh, delicious, French-inspired cooking

Since 1995, students have waited months and sometimes years for the privilege of learning to cook with Patricia Wells at Chanteduc, her eighteenth-century Provencal farmhouse, and at her Parisian cooking studio. Now, the culinary legend invites home cooks into her life in France, making the recipes from her popular classes available to fans who dream of embarking on their own gastronomic adventure in the world's culinary capital.

Beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated with stunning color photographs, The French Kitchen Cookbook offers simple yet profound pleasures to Patricia's students: the satisfaction of preparing a perfect fruit tart; the gratification of extracting a warm, fragrant, golden brioche from the oven; the giddiness of sharing a meal with a group of former strangers who quickly become lifelong friends.

Patricia's meticulously written recipes explain the basics--rules that will help anyone become a better cook--while providing the deep satisfaction that comes from creating exquisite food that extracts the best of fresh ingredients. Here are some of her best recipes for appetizers, desserts, and everything in between, dishes inspired by the vibrant Provencal countryside and the bustle of Parisian life, including Miniature Onion and Goat Cheese Tatins, Zucchini and Basil Veloute, Fricassee of Chicken with Fennel, Capers, Tomatoes and Sausage, and Apricot and Lavender Honey Sorbet.

"The French Kitchen Cookbook is about a way of life and a lifestyle of food and entertaining," Patricia writes. "It is all about the joys of combining good food, good wine, and friends altogether around the table--an experience we can enjoy day in and day out, any time."

Disappointing, considering Wells is an expert and has a great knowledge of French cuisine. It's really a beginners book only. And there are not many recipes either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every book she writes is a must have 9 May 2017
By Harry T. Dubetz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The first book of hers I bought was "A Food Lover's Guide To Paris". It was an instant hit. So much so that Julia Child wrote her and praised it. Patricia became a protoge of Julia and they had a long friendship. I trust her recipes as much as I do Julia's. I now have about a half dozen of her books. Everyone different, everyone a gem.

This book offers a small glimpse at her life in France. Many great recipes that I would love to try if I had more friends to cook for. Great reference book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've added this one to my already enjoyed collection of her cookbooks 14 Mar. 2015
By Stacy G Hedrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Patricia never disappoints. I've added this one to my already enjoyed collection of her cookbooks. Living in Northern California I enjoy the fresh ingredients called for in her recipes which brings me close to a French Kitchen moment. Recipes are clear and easy to follow for those who love a good meal made at home.
4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommend! 23 Jun. 2016
By J. Aquila - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I was expecting a basic French Cookbook, so I removed one star. I like the French basics so I can create my own recipes as I am diabetic and with a few substitutions (sugar and grains) to the basics, French food is a joy! But the recipes are awesome and the book is beautiful and I highly recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely disappointing 24 Feb. 2014
By Sofia Mascia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Patricia Wells' "Simply French" cookbook showed me how to cook. It started me in a journey of precision and care for food that has lasted more than 15 years. Unfortunately this book looks like it was put together on the run. Little photographs about the food itself and many of silly things we do not need to see. The collection of recipes really have nothing new. a waste of money and time.
