It is difficult to think of any home that can do without Elizabeth David's French Provincial Cooking. --The Observer
Voted one of the top 45 cookbooks of all time by New York's Village Voice --Village Voice
If I had to go on a desert island I'd take this with me. Elizabeth is brilliant at telling stories about the food she cooks. The text is threaded with memories of the places and people she loved. Being such an emotional writer, you can almost taste the food as you're reading.<BR> --Oz Clarke, The Daily Express
French Provincial Cooking is one of the foundations of the way we cook today - over the past 50 years, it has influenced untold numbers of cooks, restaurant chefs and food writers. --Charles Campion, Country Life

The recipes are authentic, imaginative and always go down well with guests. The techniques suggested bring out the flavour of the ingredients to a tee and are transferrable with application of one's own imagination.
The recipes are also not fussy or predicated on knowing your butcher on first name terms.
You could cook from this book for ever.
Lots of text to read for interested foodies with good descriptions of essential cooking techniques, standard equipment and practical kitchen advice. If you are looking for an easy-to-follow recipe book with plenty of colourful pictures, this might not be the best introduction to French cuisine, but for amateur cooks with some basic knowledge of technique it's a must for your kitchen bookshelf.
I have the smaller paperback version and the text is pretty small, and it's thickness makes it hard to prop open and read whilst cooking, so some people might prefer to buy a larger print version (I think one exists).
