Descriere: Simple French Food
"For twenty years Richard Olney's Simple French Food has been one of my greatest sources of inspiration for cooking at Chez Panisse." --Alice Waters "I know this book almost by heart. It is a classic of honest French cooking and good writing. Buy it, read it, eat it." --Lydie Marshall "I need this new edition badly because Simple French Food is the most dog-eared, falling-apart book in my library. Here it is newly bound to enrich one's life." --Kermit Lynch, author of Adventures on the Wine Route "Simple French Food has the most marvelous French food to appear in print since Elisabeth David's French Provincial Cooking.... The book's greatest virtue is that the author...really teaches you to cook French in a way I've never seen before. Here you acquire the methods, the tour de main, the tricks that are the heart and essence of French food, unforgettable once acquired in this book because of their logical, well-explained presentation." --Nika Hazelton, "The New York Times" "I am unable to find an ad equate adjective to express my enthusiasm.... I find Simple French Food marvelous. I have never read a book on French cuisine that has so excited and absorbed me." --Simone Beck

Finally, a glossary of terms along with a comprehensive index of the technical and most commonly known name for each food item are provided at the end of the book. In addition to providing clear and accessible information, this dictionary presents information in a highly visual manner. There are over 1,200 pictures throughout the book.

Few foods rival the feel-good factor of soup, whether a hearty minestrone on a chilly evening, a cooling gazpacho in the heat of summer, or the comforting tomato soup of childhood memory. This rich collection brings together 100 soup recipes from some of Britain's leading chefs and food writers. From Jamie Oliver's Chickpea, Leak and Parmesan Soup, to Rick Stein's Classic Fish Soup with Rouille and Croutons, here are recipes for every mood and meal. And as every culture embraces soup of some kind, the influences at work here are wonderfully varied--Ken Hom's Tomato Ginger Soup, Terence Conran's Borscht, Nobu's Seafood Miso with Chorizo, and Sam and Sam Clark's Chestnut and Chorizo Soup, to name but a few. Soup is surely the ultimate seasonal food, and, reflecting this, the book is organized by time of year, so that ingredients are easy to find and at their full-flavored best.
