Description

This is it! The everyday French cookbook you’ll truly cook from, night after night.

Grounded in the wisdom of classical French cooking, yet updated for today, Everyday French Cooking emphasizes easy technique, simple food, and speedy preparation of French cuisine without sacrificing taste.


Too often, French cooking evokes images of fine dining at ornate restaurants where a small army of chefs hover over sauces for hours, employing precision technique, special utensils, and obscure ingredients to craft elegant dishes. But this image of French cooking bears little resemblance to the way real French families eat. The French, like their American counterparts, want healthy and delicious food made quickly from easy-to-find ingredients using typical, everyday utensils.

From modern takes on classic French dishes—like fish meunière and boeuf bourguignon—to recipes for the kind of cooking found in typical French homes today, Everyday French Cooking goes beyond a typical cookbook to include engaging anecdotes, local color, and keen insights about French home kitchens, as well as tips, tricks, and shortcuts to make French cooking accessible to any home cook. Dozens of beautiful finished-food photographs will further inspire you to cook fresh, vivid everyday French food any night of the week.

Enjoy making, sharing, and savoring simple French recipes including:
  • Melty Goat Cheese Salad with Honey and Pine Nuts
  • Scallop Chowder with Fines Herbes
  • Any-Day Chicken Sauté
  • Steak with Cherry and Red Wine Sauce
  • Pork Chops with Mustard-Caper Sauce
  • Simple Beef Stew from Provence
  • Roasted Salmon with Leeks, Wine, and Garlic
  • Classic French Pizzas
  • Strawberry-Caramel Crèpes with Mascarpone Cream
  • Chocolate Pot de Crème
  • Lemon Curd Crème Brûlée
Time-pressed cooks will especially appreciate the entire chapter of main-dish recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less. Indeed, this book proves, again and again, that the joys of the French table are open to everyone. You can live modestly and cook simply, yet dine splendidly, night after night.
