Notes about this book

  • ellabee on October 11, 2013

    This would be an excellent gift to any starting-out cook. Or any cook, really; very few would learn nothing of interest. It's a comprehensive, reliable reference -- but without being monster-sized, so it's manageable enough to get off the shelf and use often. June 2014: $13. (!) at The Good Cook, an unbeatable bargain.

  • Baked sole with mushrooms and parsley (Sole Bercy)

      This was simple but very satisfying and tasty fish. I served with a side of baked potatoes as a weeknight meal. This would be great for entertaining.

      Easy and delicious! I was afraid that the 3/4 teaspoon salt would be too much, but the dish turned out perfectly seasoned. The sauce was really wonderful—I slurped up the leftovers by the spoonful, not wanting a drop of it to go to waste. :)
