The sequel to the classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking. It has a brilliant selection of recipes that will not only add to the repertory but will, above all, bring the reader to a yet higher level of mastering the art of French cooking. Among its many treasures: the first authentic, successful recipe ever devised for making real French bread; soups from the garden, chowders and bisques from the sea - including great fish stews from Provence, Normandy, and Burgundy; meats from country kitchens to haute cuisine, in master recipes that demonstrate the special art of French meat cookery; chickens poached (13 ways) and sauced; vegetables alluringly combined and restored to a place of honour on the menu; a lavish array of desserts, from the deceptively simple to the absolutely splendid. First published 1970; this revised edition 1983.
