    One thought on “Food of France”

    1. This is a good cookbook for people who are interested in French cuisine and who know a bit about cooking. Some of the recipes are a little more advanced (it is French, after all.) But many of them don't require masterful expertise or anything of the sort. You'll be dazzled by the photos, and there is some helpful discussion on items like cheeses and breads. There's also a section on the "basics" that I've referred to frequently in my general cooking (i.e. crepes, choux pastry, mayonnaise, etc.) [...]

    2. Murdoch Books' 'Food of the World' series are the best overall cookbooks I've ever come across.The clarity of the instructions to the layout of the pages make it the most user-friendly cookbook I've encountered. I write all my recipes using the same method and style as the Food of the World cookbooks.The Croque Monsieur recipe is my favourite. Everyone I make it for loves it. I also love the China and Italy versions of this series.

    3. Love the recipes, love the photos. Out of all of my French cookbooks, this is the one I turn to again and again (even if it is a big book). It really puts me on the French state / mood.
