Bistro cooking is famous and loved for un-fussy, easy-to-prepare and earthy, hearty foods, and is as much a way of life as it is a recipe or restaurant. In her best selling cookbook, Bistro Cooking, Patricia Wells perfectly captures the spirit and heart of bistro cooking with no-nonsense, inexpensive, soul-satisfying dishes inspired by the neighborhood restaurants, farmers, winemakers, and bread bakers in her adopted home of France.
There are 200 recipes (plus menus) and each one is reliable, uncomplicated, and delicious…something for every course, every taste, and every occasion. Some favorites include… Pissaladiere; Potato Gratin from the Solgne; Bacon’s Provencal Fish Soup; Sorrel Soup from the Poitou; Savory Swiss Chard Tart; Le Perraudin’s Braised Lamb with White Beans; Prune and Almond Tart.
In Bistro Cooking, Patricia Wells provides uncomplicated, good food that will always taste good, and never go out of fashion. A great book to turn to whenever you want homey, comfort food.
“Patricia Wells’ wonderful naturalness, openness, and honesty are in perfect harmony with the simple delicious fare that she celebrates in Bistro Cooking… her enthusiasm and joy are reflected on every page of this fine book and happily we are all the beneficiaries.”—Jacques Pepin
