France has always been one of the culinary greats and at the heart of French gastronomy are the recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. In The New French Kitchen, mother-and-daughter team Giselle and Emily Roux celebrate French cooking as it is today: fresh, elegant and deliciously simple.
From the provincial home cooking of the Ardèche to the sweet treats of Brittany, this unique collection of recipes shows how the French kitchen has evolved to suit a modern lifestyle - with delicious recipes for every day; family dinners; lighter soups and salads; dishes to cook with your children; and big feasts to feed a crowd.
