Everyday French Cooking: Modern French Cuisine Made Simple - Wini Moranville
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.
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.
