France: The Cookbook
The bible of traditional and authentic French home cooking, with over 6 million copies sold since its first publication. With more than 1,400 recipes, Mathiot guides the reader through all the classic recipes and techniques of French cooking (which provide the building blocks for so many other cuisines) with a clear and authoritative voice. The recipes, which have been fully updated by Clothilde Dusoulie, author of the popular Chocolate Zucchini blog, prove that authentic French food doesn't have to be complicated, heavy or too rich.
'When I first began my training as a chef I used this book on an almost daily basis - it's utterly indispensable covering everything from how to boil an egg to how to cook the perfect lobster.' - Marco Pierre White, Telegraph
