In this stunning French cooking bible, chef Marianne Megnier-Moreno simplifies the art of French cooking as she teaches home cooks how to create a range of impressive French dishes. Megnier-Moreno carefully and clearly takes you step by step, beginning with fundamental recipes for basic stocks (chicken, beef, fish), sauces (roux, béchamel, hollandaise), and preparations (cutting onions, cooking eggs, preparing clarified butter). She then teaches you the techniques that are the heart of French cooking: sautéing, roasting, grilling, braising, poaching, and more.
She follows these hands-on instructions with forty recipes for making classic French dishes, including boeuf bourguignon, salmon confit, cheese soufflé, stuffed mussels, pot-au-feu, roast chicken, and the perfect hamburger. Magnier-Moreno explains how preparation adds depths of flavor to each dish, breaks down the technique involved in creating it, and includes helpful photos for every step, as well as one large full-page photo of the final dish.
