Rachel's recipes are easy to follow and taste wonderful. Catch her four episode TV show if you can than goes along with the book. Her narrative makes it even more interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars My heart Khoo'd again. Nov. 26 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First, I think Rachel is beautiful and second, her cooking style is what I think people need to learn how to cook French Cuisine in a truly tiny area of cooking space. I am classic french trained and worked in very large resorts & hotels most of my career, but Rachel is able to bring it home with her AND let you learn along side her (see her youtube vids) as she cooks it. Her recipes are top notch, her teaching style is amateur friendly. A first for Amazon - Rachel Khoo, will you marry me, again? :) Get this book and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Done...Simple...Detailed...Colorful July 22 2012
By Bradley P Gibson - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
While this book will soon be available in the U.S. minus the metric measurements, I couldn't wait after seeing the BBC series via online torrent sites. The book is not a 100 percent mirror image of the recipes you see in the show (slight little differences in recipes), but it is so very close and gives you much more detail to compliment the TV series.

Beautifully displayed with a photo of every recipe (unlike the majority books from Rachel Ray who has to be a cheap s*** and cut quality for the sake of profits), THIS Rachel went to the trouble to warn would-be chefs little hints to avoid disasters (as in her exquisite creme brûlée recipe).

Never prepared French food? Rachel includes a great 'French Basics' section in the back of the book that explains the importance of sauces and dressings and gives over 10 different recipes (Hollandaise, Mayonnaise, Bechamel, etc.). Oh, and there's a weight and temperature conversion chart in the back for those who don't want to wait for the U.S. version of this book and get on with the U.K. edition.

All in all, a great book if you want to try your hand at basic French food with a touch of British flair. Well done, Rachel Khoo!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great recipes and beautiful photography July 11 2012
By Kitchen Queen - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I watched her series on TV and it was a feast for the eyes! What she can cook in that tiny Parisian kitchen is amazing. The recipes are well written, easy to follow and if she can cook them in her little oven and cooktop, then there's no excuse for anyone! Love the originality of the recipes and suggested substitutions of ingredients. The frites de legumes are a genius alternative to your standard french fries, and much healthier too. Well worth the purchase, a really beautiful book that you can lose yourself in!

By raz - Published on
I bought this book today, two hours later I cooked the mussels and my wife was very impressed I normally don't cook and I haven't cooked in years. This book is so easy it follow it literally took me 30 minutes to have a nice steaming mussels French dish on the table for dinner. I can't wait to try some other wonderful recipies from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars eye candy and simple recipe May 15 2013
By readalot - Published on
Couldn't wait so bought it at almost twice the cost at a local bookstore. It was WORTH IT!! I'm a foodie to say the least. Even taken some professional cooking class and yet I find this book not only entertaining, recipes in it are relatively short and preparation easy. Some complained about ingredients not available? Well I have no problem finding them. Okay so you have to know what "lardon" is but she tells you what it is, smoked bacon. Could substitute canadian bacon if you want.

Classics like boeuf bourguignon is simple. Ingredient list looks intimidating but it really isn't I've seen much longer list with method lot more complicated.

Other interesting dishes Poulet au citron et lavande, poulet aux champignons... are really easy and really good.

She also shows some of the more interesting cooking method such as en papillote. Literally cook your dinner in parchment paper. So no mess to clean up. Just wad the paper up and into trash. Typicaly en papillote is with fish and she chose to do with trout. you could substitute salmon or even rockfish, cod, sole, flounder, cat fish too if you want. I would use even good quality carp with its mild delicate flavor.

If nothing else enjoy the great photography!! And see her youtube video. She'll make you happy and smile!!

lardon substitute: canadian bacon or smoked bacon of some sort decide which one according to your taste.
Creme Fraiche can be found at Trader Joe. Chevre cheese also at Trader Joe's...

Mussel steamed in wine is another classic. simple yet so good. Puff pastry, chouquette, is easy but will make you look like a professional cook. Another classic millefeuille is rustic and simple yet looks like a million bucks and decidedly decadent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely put together. Great recipes! Oct. 9 2012
By S. Nguyen - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Got this book after watching some of her series on Youtube. I was instantly charmed. Wanted to read more about Rachel and her food so I ordered the book. I read it through and picked out her chicken with lavender and honey. Sooooo delicious! I couldnt stop eating it.... and the recipe was very easy as well. Note: this book was the european edition, so all measurements are in metric. I am used to this measuring system and have a scale and all of our liquid measuring cups have millileters on it as well, so I was fine with it. But be prepared to measure in grams, not ounces and cups!
