Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Bistro cooking is currently the rage, and the author of The Food Lover's Guide to Paris (Workman, 1988. 2d ed.) and . . . to France (Workman, 1987) is just the person to write about it. Wells has collected recipes from bistros all over France, as well as adapting classics and creating some new dishes of her own. This is real food, simple but not without sophistication, usually uncomplicated, and always delicious: Watercress and Potato Soup, L'Ami Louis's famed Roast Chicken, a Tarte Tatin of pears. With a text that is a pleasure to read, as always, and 200 recipes for what is really ``French home cooking at its best,'' Wells's latest is highly recommended.

    The best everyday French cookbook!

    Patricia Wells' recipes are clear, straightforward, easy to prepare and taste delicious. These recipes are from the very best bistros in all parts of France; authentic and very tasty. The best dishes include: roast Provencal tomatoes, simple potato gratins, a magnificent seven-hour braised leg of lamb, the simplest mussel dish ever, and a very versatile rabbit and mustard sauce.

    Releatively easy recipes.

    I did not find a recipe that I wanted to cook, perhaps because I already had numerous similar recipes. So if you do not have bistro type recipes, then I think you could find a number of easy to prepare meals that would be tasty. The book is easy to use and well organized. Give it a try.
