Rustic and approachable, humorous and convivial, French Feasts contains 299 recipes for beloved dishes that are the essence of France’s long, leisurely Sunday meals. From classic stews like navarin and boeuf bourguignon, to foie gras prepared six different ways, to crème brulée and gâteau Basque, the recipes come from all over France and even some former colonies (couscous is a national favorite). The book also includes beautiful, earthy photographs, whimsical illustrations, profiles of local producers, and fact-filled sidebars—a guide to cognac and armagnac, how to make the perfect croissants, and much more—that evoke the pleasures of the French table.
