The inimitable author of Simca's Cuisine and co-author of Mastering the Art of French Cooking [with Julia Child] brings an abundance of fresh ideas from her kitchen in the South of France to this completely new collection of recipes and menus. Continuing to reinvent and simplify regional French cuisine for modern cooks, Simone Beck makes enterprising use of the food processor; finds inspiration in un-Gallic ingredients like avocados, bourbon, maple syrup, and macadamia nuts; and recommends wines from the Napa Valley as well as from France. The result is the special Simca blend of old and new world flavors. Includes twenty-two menus arranged according to main course dishes.
