Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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
