Chapters with titles such as "Shops Wisely," "Knows Her Classics," "Steals from Chefs" and "Rises to the Occasion" will both delight and inform. Readers will find all they need to master French cuisine, from classic dinner party recipes to the latest trends as well as how to tackle difficult ingredients such as truffles and lobster.An affectionate yet unsentimental, irreverent but non-patronizing guide from one of France's top cookbook authors, Nobody Does It Better is set to steal a place on any discerning kitchen shelf.
