La Cousine Bourgeoise means cooking as you find it in the French home...a little less elaborate, a little less expensive than la haute cuisine of the famous French restaurants, but nonetheless superb, artistic and delicious. One man has been chiefly responsible for that excellence--M. Henri-Paul Pellaprat. One book has been the "bible" of la cuisine bourgeoise--this one...now published for the American kitchen as EVERYDAY FRENCH COOKING, with recipes and cooking advice geared to the equipment you use, to the ingredients you can buy at the supermarket, and to the limited time you have to spend.
Here are the secrets and the sauces, the magic and the marinades, the wisdom and the wines. Alors, let us begin to cook a la francaise.
