Synopsis

The French Kitchen 200 Recipes from the Master of French Cooking by Michel, Jr. Roux

French gastronomy is renowned for its classic recipes passed from generation to generation. From Burgundy to the Auvergne, Provence, the Loire and the Pyrenees, traditional family cooking has always been at the heart of the French kitchen and lifestyle. With its delicious dishes and exquisite ingredients as diverse as the regions from which they come, heritage cooking and family values from provincial France have stood the test of time. In this book Michel Roux Jr, star of the BBC's MASTERCHEF and owner of the two-Michelin star Le Gavroche in London, explores the heritage of his native French cuisine - from the rustic to the haute. With classic recipes using delicious ingredients, Michel Roux Jr will help you bring provincial French cooking into your kitchen and helps you to recreate the 'je ne sais quoi' that only French cuisine can embody.
