Notes about this book

    In the early 70's I worked for a subsidiary company of RD and bought friends and family copies of this book. I am now 60+ and although cooking since my teens, this book has laid the foundations of my French provincial repertoires that friends and family still eagerly request for dinner parties, casual suppers or day to day family meals. Unbelievably good - buy this for a young person to reveal well thought out versions of everything. No fluff, no conceit, authentic and sensible.

    This is the book that turned me on to cooking. My Dad gave me a copy when I was at university and I've never looked back. Like all RD editions the contributors are eminent but anonymous.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Spare ribs of pork in cider

    • debkellie on September 05, 2014

      I was looking for something different and this filled the bill. Very tasty, the cider makes the dish so don't skimp on a quality product. Would definitely do again.

  • Cheese and chutney dip

    • debkellie on June 04, 2016

      Quick easy tasty - I only used 1 tsp curry powder though ...

  • Lemon soufflé

    • debkellie on March 19, 2017

      I'd forgotten how nice the simple chilled lemon souffle is .. must be 25 years since I've made this - it used to be my "go to" dinner party dessert! Easy, "do ahead" impressive dessert.
