Saveur Cooks Authentic French


edited by Colman Andrews and the Saveur magazine editorial staff. Amazingly, out of print! Chronicle Books, first edition, 1999.

This is one of the best, and certainly most lavish, U.S. books on classic French provincial cooking (from all provinces) EVER. The recipes were written down by Saveur writers as they watched French home cooks and chefs in the city and countryside prepare the dishes. Filled with sumptuous in-situ color photographs. Already a classic. If you have room on your shelf for one book on authentic French cooking (besides Julia's, of course), and you must, this is IT!

From the Acknowledgments page: "Most of the recipes in this book have been researched in the kitchens of the French cooks who prepared them. We cover the country from populous (and popular) cities to tiny hamlets, from three-star kitchen to humble home stoves...."

From the publisher: "From their very first issue, the editors at "Saveur" magazine have shared their passion for French food and wine, describing the vivid immediacy of real French cooking in loving detail. Now they take readers off the beaten track and into the kitchens of France to taste the true Mediterranean flavors of Provence, sample the unique farmhouse cooking of Brittany, savor the sumptuous cuisines of Alsace and Burgundy, and discover many more inspiring regional cuisines...whether interviewing a cheese maker or accompanying a truffle hunter on his secret unforgettable tour through the abundant culinary glories of France."
