Description

Experience the enduring pleasure of traditional French cooking with over 60 uncomplicated recipes for every home cook.



French cookery is one of the best in the world, and with so many dishes gaining a new wave of popularity, you'll see it appear time and again on the menus of bustling bistros and fine dining restaurants. Yet, the one thing people often get wrong about this delicious cuisine, is that it's complicated and can't be recreated at home. However, you may be surprised that the ingredients, though good-quality and flavourful, are often fewer in number than you'd actually think. This is the beauty of French cooking - what basic ingredients are gathered, are transformed into something utterly tasty and delightful. In Bistro you'll find no shortage of classic dishes. From Appetizers and Soups to Meat and Seafood recipes, on to Salads and Sides right through to Desserts, there are gems to be found for everyone to enjoy. Start your dinner with a selection of Crudites, a Vegetable Bouillabaisse or Tuna Carpaccio. Move on to marvellous and mouth-watering mains such as a buttery Lemon Sole Meuniere, a veggie Ratatouille or a simple Steak & Frites. And if you have enough room for dessert, try a Vanilla Orange Souffle, a gorgeous Tarte Tatin or some mini Petit Fours. For anyone who loves good food and wants to master the everyday and moreish recipes found at the heart of French cookery, Bistro will be your gentle guide to perfecting its traditional yet trouble-free dishes.
