Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

When acclaimed cookbook author Patricia Wells moved to Paris in 1980, she had no idea it would be "for good." In the two decades since, she has become one of the world's most beloved food writers, sharing her deep passion for her adopted home and teaching millions of Americans how to cook real French food.

In this new book, Patricia leads readers on a fascinating culinary exploration of the City of Moveable Feasts. Both a recipe book and a gastronomic guide, The Paris Cookbook covers all facets of the city's dynamic food scene, from the three-star cuisine of France's top chefs, to traditional bistro favorites, to the prized dishes of cheese-makers, market vendors, and home cooks. Gathered over the years, the 150 recipes in this book represent the very best of Parisian cooking: a simple yet decadent creamy white bean soup from famed chef Joel Robuchon; an effortless seared veal flank steak from Patricia's neighborhood butcher; the ultimate chocolate mousse from La Maison du Chocolat; and much more. In her trademark style, Patricia explains each dish clearly and completely, providing readers with helpful cooking secrets, wine accompaniments, and metro directions to each featured restaurant, cafe, and market.

Filled with gorgeous black-and white photographs and Patricia's own personal stories, The Paris Cookbook offers an unparalleled taste of France's culinary capital. You may not be able to visit Paris, but this book will bring its many charms home to your table.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2001-08-03)

Wells is best known for her enduringly popular Food Lover's Guide to Paris, a gourmet's travel guide that includes recipes. Here she has collected her favorite Parisian recipes in a book that will also send travelers to carefully selected restaurants, cheese shops, olive merchants, open-air markets, and other destinations. Some of the mouth-watering recipes come from chefs, purveyors, and other such experts (e.g., Ledoyen's Sauted Foie Gras with Garlic and Lemon Pure); others (e.g., Chunky Green Olive Pistou-Tapenade) are Wells's own, inspired by the ingredients and cuisine of her adopted city. For Francophiles, this is highly recommended.
