Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Marshall (Cooking with Lydie Marshall), a cooking instructor in New York City and at her chteau in Nyons, France, serves forth more than 200 recipes gathered from three generations of Provenal family and friends. Often introduced by personal anecdotes or descriptions of their origins, the recipes are thorough and easy to follow. Simple country fare, relying on seasonal vegetables and fruits, meats, fish and poultry, is celebrated in pates, tians, gratins, stews (daubes and ragouts), soups and tarts. Especially noteworthy are pissaladiere, the Provenal version of pizza, typically topped with onion and anchovy marmalade with olives; fougasse, a flat bread similar to Italian focaccia; and tapenade, a spread made of black olives, capers and anchovies. Although a few recipes, such as the one for Wild Boar Stew, may not be appropriate for American cooks, this is nonetheless an exhilarating gastronomical journey and a reliable culinary guide. First serial to Gourmet; HomeStyle Books main selection. (Apr.)
Library Journal
Reading about Marshall's summers in Provence, with the abundance of fresh produce at her doorstep, the olive oil produced in her town of Nyons, the fish that define bouillabaisse, and the lamb unlike any other-not to mention the truffle-hunting dog next door-will make any cook envious. Marshall, author of A Passion for Potatoes (LJ 2/15/92), runs a cooking school in New York City and spends some of her summers in France teaching there as well. The recipes she includes here are for "good country food," the favorite dishes she cooks everyday (usually for guests as well as family); in addition to wonderful Provenal classics, there are recipes inspired by other French cooks, from friends and neighbors to her butcher's wife. But even when Marshall describes in detail the dish she makes in France, she gives the "New York version" if it differs. A warm and delightful book and a good companion to Richard Olney's account of another Provenal cook, Lulu's Provenal Table (LJ 4/1/94). Highly recommended. [HomeStyle Bks. main selection.]
Barbara Jacobs
Enjoying the best of two countries isn't a reward most of us realize, but for cooking school owner and author Marshall, it's a luxury not taken for granted. Working from homes in both Manhattan and France's Midi, she has learned to keep her life--and edibles--simple. Each of the 200 recipes deliberately trades exotic for fresh ingredients (with substitutes readily suggested); downplays long preparation and cooking times for, among others, a 15-minute ratatouille; and avoids all but the most indigenous of dishes. Few of her contributions to the swelling gastronomic library are original, but all will succeed even in the hands of a fledgling home chef.
