Description: It is precisely this combination of French cooking with American sensibilities that makes Michel Richard's Home Cooking with a French Accent so right for the way we eat today. His advice to home cooks is simple. Know the basics. Use the freshest ingredients. Break the rules. Apply some imagination. Please your guests.
This long-awaited collection of recipes ranges from the lusty, earthy dishes of his native France to Michel's unique signature cuisine inspired by his adopted home of California. Every recipe, from Prime Rib with Blue Cheese Dressing to Nonfried Fried Chicken Breasts with Mustard and Tarragon to Coq au California, has been tested and perfected for the home cook in the home kitchen.
Michel shares many of his innovative techniques, such as sealing foods in crusts for unusual contrasts in textures and flavors. There's Rack of Lamb with Tomato Crust, Black Olive Tuxedo Steak, Tangy Chicken with Shiitake Crust, and Salmon with Couscous Crust and Tomato Leek Sauce.
Michel's signature dishes are included here as well -- Crab Coleslaw, Eggplant-Tomato Terrine with Parsley-Cilantro Sauce, Tunaburgers, and Chicken in Red Pepper Sacks. No cookbook by Michel would be complete without his dazzling, legendary desserts -- Frozen Lemon Cheesecake, Creme Brulee Napoleon with Hazelnuts, French Brownies, and that all-American favorite with a French twist, Lemon Meringue Tart.
