The unequivocal reference tome on the full spectrum of twentieth-century French cooking, interpreted and revised by master chef Paul Bocuse for the home cook.

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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Named Chef of the Century by the Culinary Institute of America last year and considered by many to be the father of modern French cuisine ..." ~France Magazine

"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. When you lift the lid off the pot and you breathe in the aroma, that is the essence of good cuisine." That's what you feel when you open the pages of this wonderful book." ~Esquire

"It is a complete book with all his best recipes, for all to enjoy, This will become a classic reference book. Its genius is in the simple, efficient recipes to make home cooking a success. It underlines the key role of cookbooks in transmitting the legacy of culinary culture." ~Publisher's Weekly

"If you're looking for a book to teach you the ins and outs of classic French cuisine, this may be the book for you (don't tell Julia)." ~Eater.com


One of the "best French cookbooks of all time." ~ Forbes.com
