You don't have to be a Cordon Bleu graduate or a religious viewer of Julia Child reruns to cook French food. La Bonne Soupe Cookbook makes French cooking easy and delicious. This book features all the French bistro classics, including an award-winning onion soup, as well as American favorites with a French twist. Menu suggestions accompany most recipes, completing a lunch or dinner, and providing bread and wine recommendations. There are also low-fat ingredient alternatives for each recipe. And charming snapshots and anecdotes capture the spirit of bistro cooking. La Bonne Soupe Cookbook will bring the warmth, charm, and robust food of the French bistro into anyone's kitchen. Jean-Paul Picot owns the midtown Manhattan bistro, La Bonne Soupe, and presently lives in New York City.
