Overview

Now you can create the warm bistro atmosphere, comforting aromas, and robust flavors in your own kitchen with the La Bonne Soupe Cookbook. Authors Jean-Paul Picot and Doris Tobias have made bistro cooking easy, offering more than 100 homey recipes, most with menu suggestions to make a complete lunch or dinner. And if you're watching your weight, but still crave robust, French flavors, simply substitute the low-fat ingredient alternatives provided. Jean-Paul and Doris also offer wonderful light pastas, crisp salads, and fish and chicken recipes. And they give American favorites that oh-so-French style - the hamburger becomes Steak Hache Pizzaiola (Hamburger with Zesty Garlic Sauce). And of course there are plenty of bonne soups, omelets, and quiche. What about dessert? How do Creme Caramel, Chocolate Mousse, and Apple Tart sound? While Jean-Paul's award winning Gratineed Onion Soup simmers on your stove, enjoy reading about restaurant La Bonne Soupe's owners, Monique and Jean-Paul Picot. You'll be whisked back in time to France when young Jean-Paul developed a passion for cooking by observing his grandmother's inherent expertise. Learn where Monique came up with the recipe for her Roast Chicken Stuffed with Goat Cheese Croutons. Find out what it's like to run a family-owned, popular New York restaurant. Photos from the Picot's family picture album help capture the spirit of bistro cooking and of this family's food tradition.

    We visit the restaurant quite often when we visit Manhattan

    Thanks to the cookbook, I can now recreate some of my favorites right at home. The recipes are easy to follow and clear. I am particularly fond of Leslie Levin's Swordfish recipe. It is always a hit when I serve it.

    Novices can cook like they cook in the restaurant

    Easy to understand recipes for menu items in the restaurant. Additional tips are provided for the novice - it feels like they want you to 'get it right'
