The book is brilliant and would be great for someone with some culinary background. This book is not for the beginner.

The book,Cuisine Foundations Classic Recipes, is very intuitive with systematic approach to French cuisine. Very convenient with tables and measurement both in US and Metric system. This book is filled with colorful and artistic pictures of each recipe. A great reference book, well worth the money.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great recipes, if you have plenty of time for cooking! June 22 2013
By FoodCrafters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent book, lots of traditional & "classics" recipes, written with much detail & care, but for serious cooks that can spend a few hours in the kitchen.

The only problem (or advantage, depends how you look at it) is that this is aimed for profesionnal cooks that have plenty of time, ingredients, and utensils in their hands. If you want to study & learn the basics of french cuisine and are ready to invest what it takes, then this is an excellent reference. But be warned that many recipes is written over 1-3 pages (very detailed step-by-step description with the politically correct - french - terms for each procedure). So a solid and generously illustrated reference if you want to learn how real restaurants cook do their trade!

If you're an amateur and would like to cook "real & serious food" at home, but don't have hours to carefully carve every piece of vegetable and create many stocks, sauces & such, then pick another book. The recipes in this one look delicious, and the book itself is great (lots of photographies, very interesting and relevant text), but I never cooked anything from this book yet (so can't comment on how these taste) simply because it seems that each recipe will take me 3 hours... and I always end up chosing something in another book that looks doable for a weekly dinner.

Maybe I'll do a coq au vin for my dad's birthday when I have a long weekend ahead? Maybe... Or when I'll retire?

5.0 out of 5 stars Julia Child, Julie Powel, and ME! French cuisine at your fingertips June 10 2010
By In Libris Veritas - Published on Amazon.com
Julia Child, Julie Powel, and now ME! This is French cuisine at its most accessible! The Le Cordon Bleu has been training the best of the best in the art of French cuisine since 1895, and now you and I are privy to the recipes that made it the premiere culinary institute that it is today!

This book not only outlines the techniques, it's beautifully illustrated with step-by-step photos: there's no way you can't succeed with this in your library! PLUS these recipes are what spawned the techniques the LCB chefs hone today: learning by doing is the best way to truly understand. The best part of this...learning by doing when you're talking food means you have dinner when you're done!

This needs to be on your kitchen counter!
