Two culinary classics by a literary master.

Nicolas Freeling, best known for producing some of the finest modern crime fiction, began his working life as an apprentice cook in a large French hotel, and continued cooking professionally for many years. Here, reprinted in a single volume, are two splendid books of gastronomical memoir drawn from those experiences. Each is a fortuitous blend of the culinary and the literary and includes such recipes as cinnamon lamb stew and bouillabaisse, embedded in the entertaining text. Funny, wise, full of inspiration, The Kitchen Book & The Cook Book will find a place close to every cook's hearth and heart.

"Nicolas Freeling is the author of two of the best books about cooking in the English language. The Kitchen Book and The Cook Book have long been favorites of mine." - M.F.K. Fisher

Review:

He] will be read for a long time, because while he was turning his vegetables and reducing his sauces he had an eye to the social context of what he was doing, and to the rich ragout of Zola-esque characters by whom we was surrounded. --The Guardian

Nicolas Freeling is the author of two of the best books about cooking in the English language. The Kitchen Book and The Cook Book have long been favorites of mine. That they will appear under one cover, with the original illustrations, is fine news indeed. I can't help regretting that Ludwig Bemelmans is not here to see this new edition of his good friend's prose. The two men were strangely alike in their abilities to describe the true joys of cooking and eating like civilized human beings. --M.F.K. Fisher

He] will be read for a long time, because while he was turning his vegetables and reducing his sauces he had an eye to the social context of what he was doing, and to the rich ragout of Zola-esque characters by whom we was surrounded. --The Guardian

Sensitively civilized and very European . . . absolutely delightful to read. --The Times (London)
