Product Info

In the pages of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, home cooks will find something for everyone, from seasoned experts to beginners who love good food and long to reproduce the savory delights of French cuisine, from historic Gallic masterpieces to the seemingly artless perfection of a dish of spring-green peas. Here Julia Child, Simone Beck, and Louisette Bertholle break down the classic foods of France into a logical sequence of themes and variations rather than presenting an endless and diffuse catalogue of dishes. Throughout, the focus is on key recipes that form the backbone of French cookery and lend themselves to an infinite number of elaborations - bound to increase anyone’s culinary repertoire. First published in 1961.

A staple for any kitchen

Anyone who is interested in cooking, French cuisine or not, should own this.
It is a bible for any serious cook who want to "master" cooking. It has excellent base recipes which you can expand on and demonstrates a number of techniques which are really useful as they're used frequently in cooking.
I have both volumes in hard cover and I refer to them frequently.

Not a recipe book!

This is an instruction manual in how to cook - a far cry from the showy recipe books that seem to dominate the Christmas culinary bookshelves. It has to be read - dipping into it to quickly find something to cook would be sacrilege! An absolute classic.

Awesome purchase! Defs a must have!

Expected an A4 hardcover book but instead it's a gorgeous, smaller soft cover book, which is much easier to carry around. LOVE the recipes and explanations inside - written in true Julia Child style.
