Doesn’t the cover of this cookbook look delicious?
In French Bistro, Maria Zihammou teaches us how to make restaurant quality French food at home. This is a type of cooking that can seem intimidating to those of us who do not have a culinary degree, but she breaks it down with simple instructions that are easy to follow.
The recipes use lots of fresh ingredients, as I expected. She also includes brief introductions to each recipe that add warmth and and give the reader insight into French food and culture. The photographs are absolutely stunning. This is the kind of cookbook that is fun to browse even when you’re not planning on cooking.
