The book is divided into 15 chapters by type of dish; from soups to meats, vegetables, and desserts, each of the 220 recipes is explained step-by-step. Bocuse's carefully chosen dishes-from beef bourguignon, blanquette de veau, and potato-leek soup; olive tapenade and old-style mustard sauce; to rhubarb jam, pears in wine sauce, and tarte Tatin-highlight the flavor of each ingredient, resulting in food that maintains its freshness and integrity. Bocuse in Your Kitchen includes 60 illustrative photos that serve to inspire, as well as a glossary of culinary terms and techniques.Beautifully designed and illustrated, Bocuse in Your Kitchen makes French cuisine simple and easy for the home chef.
