Captures the Culinary Spirit of France Jul 22, 2008
Robert Freeman's stunning photographs are the meat & potatoes of this beautiful coffee-table book -- the descriptive writing and recipes from authorities like Richard Olney & Anne Willan put it right over the top. This book is a classic that truly captures the culinary spirit of France.
Excellent resource Jul 28, 2001
I have owned this book for years and love it. It is worn out and well read. I own a French Bistro in Arizona and am a 1990 graduate of The Culinary Institute of America. I turn to this book often for inspiration when writing my menus.
