Product Description

Considered one of the most important cookbooks ever published, this 40th anniversary edition of Richard Olney's Simple French Food features a fresh cover and new interior design with a foreword by Mark Bittman.

Olney's 175 recipes are so straightforward that cooks will be inspired to go right into the kitchen: herb omelets, fish with zucchini, lamb shanks with garlic, and many more. He also shares techniques (several featuring his own illustrations), such as fermenting vinegar, in line with the back-to-basics trend in cooking. Olney's emphasis on simplicity and improvisation in cooking will resonate with today's cooks and food lovers.
