If you like just reading cookery books buy this book and enjoy Paula Wolfert's wonderful writing style that evokes the atmosphere and flavours of South-west France. If you consider cooking from this book think twice. Although the recipes are worth trying (more on that below) they are complicated and time consuming. Just the look on a given recipe running on two pages can put you off. Although the recipes are very detailed you need to be an experienced cook to achieve good results.

Paula Wolfert's brioche is wonderful but the dough must rise for upwards of 20 hours. Her recipes for duck confits, cassoulets and pates as well as traditional desserts are wonderful but again you need time and experience.

The simplest as well as delicious are her vegetable recipes including potato cake with leeks so if you hesitate to buy this book you can do it just for them.
