Description: Now you can create the warm bistro atmosphere, comforting aromas, and robust flavors in your own kitchen with the La Bonne Soupe Cookbook. Authors Jean-Paul Picot and Doris Tobias have made bistro cooking easy, offering more than 100 homey recipes, most with menu suggestions to make a complete lunch or dinner. Wondering whether you should serve a red or white wine with the Cossoulet? And what type of bread with which to soak up the rest of your Boeuf Bourguignon? Don't worry -- Jean-Paul and Doris tell you what they recommend. And if you're watching your weight, but still crave robust, French flavors, simply substitute the low-fat ingredient alternatives provided. 

Jean-Paul and Doris also offer wonderful light pastas, crisp salads, and fish and chicken recipes.And they give American favorites that oh-so-French style the hamburger becomes Steak Hach6 Pizzoiola (Hamburger with Zesty Garlic Sauce). And of course there are plenty of bonne soups, omelets, and quiche. What about dessert? How do Creme Caramel, Chocolate Mousse, and Apple Tart sound? 

While Jean-Paul's award winning Gratineed Onion Soup simmers on your stove, enjoy reading about restaurant La Bonne Soupe's owners, Monique and Jean-Paul Picot. You'll be whisked back in time to France when young Jean-Paul developed a passion for cooking by observing his grandmother's inherent expertise. Learn where Monique came up with the recipe for her Roast Chicken Stuffed with Goat Cheese Croutons. Find out what it's like to run a family-owned, popular New York restaurant. Photos from the Picot's family picture album help capture the spirit of bistro cooking and of this family's food tradition. 

To bring you even closer to the quintessential French-American bistro, Pierre Franey and Bryan Miller, formerly of The New York Times, reminisce about the delectable dishes they savored and their bonne experiences at this place where you're made to feel at home. Let La Bonne Soupe Cookbook bring the warmth, charm, and robust food of the French-American bistro into your kitchen.
