Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Braised lamb with beans (Haricots d'agneau)

    • chriscooks on July 01, 2012

      This recipe and the one that follows it are very similar. I prefer the second one because it has carrots.

  • Lamb and white beans with vegetables

    • chriscooks on July 01, 2012

      This is very similar to the previous recipe in the book. It can be made with canned beans, in which case the onions and carrots can be added to the lamb while it is cooking. The lamb can cook on top of the stove (the previous recipe is for stove-top stewing).

  • Provençal seafood stew

    • BlytheSpirit on January 31, 2015

      Followed the recipe pretty much to a 't'. This delivered on all counts - it was fairly quick to prepare and I enjoyed the results very much. Next time, would probably just use scallops or combo of scallops, mussels and shrimp as the extra pieces of fish did not seem to add that much for me.

  • Chicken breasts with garlic and balsamic vinegar

    • Sharonsez on December 22, 2012

      I've been asked for this recipe more than any other. Simple, yet delicious. Great for a quick meal.

    • Rinshin on February 01, 2015

      After Sharonsez posted the review for this recipe, I remembered how much I liked this recipe but haven't touched the book in 8+ years. And what a shame too, because most of the recipes I've used from this book have been excellent and quick to make. This one is very easy to make. I thinly sliced the chicken breast by butterfrying and added about 1/2 tsp sugar to the sauce since my husband is not keen sour note.

  • Georges Perrier's crab cakes with shrimp

    • amoule on March 09, 2015

      No bread crumbs and no mayonnaise. These are bound together by putting raw shrimp meat, cream, and egg into the food processor to make a mousse. The crab meat is stirred in by hand. Gluten free.
