Almost all of Calder's recipes are barely a page long, and that's only because of those frank and funny introductions. Her recipes for dishes such as Camembert Salmon, Scallops in Velvet, and The Lemon Tart of My Dreams, are simple, approachable, and manageable. The ingredients are easy to find, and she's always suggesting options. Calder's is a sunny and welcome addition to the list of French cookbooks already out there, and happily, chefs of any skill level will enjoy her company in the kitchen. --Leora Y.

I am using this book in my Foods 11/12 classroom. It is GREAT sample of French food.Published 3 months ago by Dawn Kelly
Gave it 4 stars because I think that the premise of each recipe is badly formatted and takes too much place in the book. It could have been better arranged in my opinion. Read morePublished 5 months ago by David Dufresne
