I can see peoples point of view about the project being more of a lifestyle thing than a foray into classic French cuisine. I looked through the book and thought it was slightly light on receipes... the book itself looks fantastic thought. I'm interested in photography and some of the images are sublime, infact even though I love cooking part of the inspiration of this book is the photography for me, I know this is not what the book is for, but i'm looking at it from another perspective. As for people's comments on Rachel Khoo, yes it may be a show that more about lifestyle but if it gets people excited about going further into French cooking and even exploring France as a country then it's served it's purpose. Give it a solid 3.
