Celebrated chef Paul Bocuse is the authority on classic French cuisine. In this volume, he shares 500 simple, traditional French recipes. Aimed at the beginner, but with enough breadth to entice the confident chef, these recipes can be readily prepared at home, and emphasize the use of fresh and widely available ingredients.
This new cookbook is a complete collection of Bocuse's classic French recipes, which have been tried and tested over a lifetime in the business, and revised and adapted here to be accessible for the modern kitchen. With 221 colour photographs to inspire the home cook, this indispensable kitchen companion is also an authoritative culinary reference work on traditional French cooking, which remains an international, UNESCO-protected benchmark in world gastronomy.
Divided into 22 chapters, with 14 covering savoury recipes and 8 covering sweet recipes, Bocuse covers everything from from soups to souffles, by way of terrines, fish, meat, vegetables, and sauces. Practical appendixes include average cooking times for different types of meat, conversion tables, and a glossary of key French culinary terms.

"The recipes are clear, few are complex, and all look delicious. Bocuse himself once told me, "If cooks would eat their own food, there would be better cuisine.
