Publishers Text

In this very personal book, Michel Roux distills a lifetime's knowledge into a definitive work on French food and cooking. Based around 100 classic recipes that have stood the test of time, this lavishly illustrated book explores the diversity of French cuisine, which for centuries has influenced so many other styles of cooking around the world. Michel gives modern interpretations of classic dishes, with his favourite variations and accompaniments. He provides expert guidance on classic techniques as well as fascinating stories about the origins of recipes, ingredients and regional culinary traditions. In addition, there are features on French cheeses and wine. Photographed on location in France, this extraordinarily beautiful book embraces the timeless essence of French cuisine and conveys the flavours and variety of French cooking today.
