Description: Simone ("Simca") Beck is known to millions of Americans as Julia Child's French partner in the creation of the two classic volumes of Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Now, for the first time, she gives us her own delectable recipes—the ones she most treasures out of a lifetime of cooking creativity that has made her one of the great cuisinieres of her day.
Here are recipes that were inspired by old French family specialties found in her mother's and grandmother's well-thumbed notebooks; recipes that grew out of Simca's life in the provinces (particularly Normandy, Alsace, and Provence) where she has gardened, cooked, dined out, and entertained; simple delights and fabulous concoctions all set down with a beautiful French clarity.
Skillfully (almost invisibly) adapting her French ways to American needs, she presents over 100 recipes in 31 alluring menus designed for every sort of occasion.
