Product description

Rachel Khoo serves up a modern twist on classic French cooking. Rachel Khoo was determined to get to grips with French cooking, so to learn more she moved to Paris, not speaking a word of French, and enrolled at Le Cordon Bleu, the world-famous cookery school. Six years later, she still lives and works in Paris, cooking up a selection of classic French dishes from all over the country and giving them a fresh makeover with her own modern twists. From a Croque Madame muffin and the classic Boeuf bourguignon, to a deliciously fragrant Provencal lavender and lemon roast chicken, Rachel celebrates the culinary landscape of France as it is today and shows how simple these dishes are. The 120 recipes in the book range from easy, everyday dishes like Omelette Piperade, to summer picnics by the Seine and afternoon 'gouter' (snacks), to meals with friends and delicious desserts including classics like Creme brulee and Tarte tatin. It's a book that celebrates the very best of French home-cooking in a modern and accessible way. Real French food is no longer something only served in fancy restaurants; Rachel will show how you can add a little French culinary touch to your everyday life at home, no matter where you are in the world, or how big your kitchen is!

Nicely presented, simple recipes and modern.
A great solid coffee table book. It's definitely worth buying....however, just as any other French cookbook, you might not be able to get all of the ingredient.

Recipes are exactly those from the show! I love the show and I love the book. The book is very pretty, well organised and easy to follow. I pick books based on their aesthetics and layout and well this book definitely nailed it. The recipes are nice and easy and it has a nice back reference section of common things like how to make mayonnaise.

I have made the quiche lorraine and my father loved the pastry.
