9781844009817: Simple French Cooking for English Homes (Classic Voices in Food)

First published in June 1923 to immediate success, Xavier Marcel Boulestin's Simple French Cooking for English Homes did much to popularise French cuisine in the English-speaking world. In this charming book, chef, restaurateur and author Boulestin dispels the myth that French cooking is complicated, rich and full of nondescript dishes with pretentious names by offering over 300 delicious recipes - including traditional favourites such as Sorrel Soup, Pommes de Terre Boulangere, Entrecote Bordelaise and Galette au Chocolat - which are simple and easy to make. And, very topically, the book also reveals both that many of the very best French dishes are made up of 'remnants' and that there is very little waste in the French kitchen. Written in an engaging style and filled with anecdote and advice, Simple French Cooking for English Homes is a timeless classic that demands to be included in any keen cook's collection. Classic Voices in Food is a significant new series bringing you a fascinating perspective on the tastes of times gone by, as well as delicious recipes, engaging text and original illustrations that will draw you in and leave you hungry for more. Reproduced unabridged from the finest texts on food in English from the 19th to the mid-20th century, each voice conveys the unique flavour of its times, while still being astonishingly relevant to today's cook. Filled with passion, enthusiasm and, above all else, a timeless understanding of good food, the Classic Voices in Food series is an essential new source of reference and inspiration for all food lovers.

About the Author:

French-born British chef, restaurateur, and author, Xavier Marcel Boulestin (1878-1943) has been called 'the most subtle, imaginative, and liberating food writer of his day' and was a major influence on the work of Elizabeth David. In 1925, Boulestin opened Boulestin's Restaurant Francaise in London. It was called 'the prettiest restaurant in London' by Cecil Beaton, and writer Edward Laroque Tinker declared in The New York Times that at Boulestin's 'one gets the most perfect and recherche dinner to be found in all London'. Boulestin followed the success of his restaurant with cooking courses and popular books, and wrote many articles about food in Vogue and The Manchester Guardian. Boulestin was also the first television chef, appearing on a BBC programme in television's earliest experimental days, in 1937.
