Sounds from Josephine's Kitchen Cookbook

Sounds from Josephine's Kitchen Cookbook is written by Josephine Enizan, a former French cooking instructor and Cordon Bleu trained chef. Josephine offers you a cookbook of French recipes for gourmet dinners that are affordable -- back in 1978 they were touted as being less than $10 for four people. We are pretty sure they will be three times that today.

Additional Details

Description: No one cooks better than this irrepressible 81-year-old Cordon Bleu-trained Master Chef and beloved teacher of classic French cookery. Josephine sings when she cooks because, she says, "You cook better." 

She also tells stories in the kitchen --” about her years of cooking in the households of the great and near-great of France and of San Francisco high society. She gives the prayer for scalding lobsters. With good sense, she tells how to save money on menus (she includes in this book menus and recipes for gourmet dinners for less than $10 for four people). And, with a twinkle and a laugh, she talks about her beloved Charles ("My gigolo") her husband of 53 years. 

Recipes and menus for beginners and advanced cooks are included in this new collection from Josephine. One of her former employers, grand dame of an eminent San Francisco family, called her "a tonic for the nerves." Her stories and songs are that -- while her recipes are a tonic for the palate.
