Overview

Essence Of French Cooking

Michel Roux distils a lifetime's knowledge of French food and cooking into this definitive book on French cooking. Based around over 100 classic recipes that have stood the test of time, the lavishly illustrated tome explores the diversity of French cuisine, which has influenced so many other styles of cooking around the world over the centuries. From Picardie to Provence, Brittany to Alsace, France is blessed with a rich and varied landscape, which provides an abundant range of ingredients, and encompasses different cultures with their own styles of cooking; hence the wonderful array of great French dishes. In The Essence of French Cooking Michel gives his personal interpretations of classic dishes, along with mouth-watering variations and accompaniments as appropriate. He also provides detailed information on the classic techniques, fascinating stories about the origin of the recipes and information about ingredients and regional culinary traditions. In addition, there are features on French cheeses and wine. Photographed on location in France, this extraordinarily beautiful book embraces the timeless essence of French cuisine and conveys the flavours and variety of French cooking today.

FAQ's

Q: I’ve seen a product in store but can’t find it on your website. How can I order it?

 

If there's something you are after that isn't yet available here on our website, contact us and we'll see what we can do. If it’s something we have in stock and can send by courier, we will do our very best to make it available on our website.

 

Q: Why is there a minimum order quantity for some products?

 

Some of our products – such as beer and grocery items – can be bought individually in store, but we can only courier them in set quantities (such as boxes, cases or cartons). It is often quite a lot cheaper to buy in these quantities, which is why we show both the individual and bulk prices on the product pages. It’s always nice to know what you’re saving!
