Book Overview

As much a book of inspiration as a collection of over 250 uncommonly delicious recipes, "French Farmhouse Cookbook" captures the rustic and richly flavored farmhouse cooking that is the basis of French cuisine and a perennial inspiration of French chefs. The author visited and lived among farmers, cheesemakers, ranchers, and vintners from the Pyrennees to Alsace-Lorraine, from Normandy to Provence.

One of my favorites-

The foods in here are tasty and simple. There are stories, tips and tricks that add so much to the experience of cooking these recipes- you really get a feel for the people of the regions represented. If this book has a shortcoming, it's that the south/central regions of France are a little under represented, but there are TONS of good recipes from the north.This is one cookbook that I can find recipes easily without bookmarks- how? By the stains and stiffened pages the book has from enduring my ownership!

Farmhouse Cookbook

I was so pleased to receive this book through Pamela Ball. She shipped it so quickly and in fabulous condition. The whole book is worth every penny. So sad that it's out of print at the moment. They should consider putting this book into circulation again soon. The recipes are wonderful. A crucial part of a cookbook collection.

Can Do Cookbook!

Though I'd always fancied myself a good cook, I could never make a pie/tart crust,(the dough would tear as I rolled it out, among other frustrations), until this book. Armed with a food processor and this great book, it's a snap.Having said that, it should be noted the recipes are easy, and a senual delight. Moreover, Ms. Loomis gives one a cultural taste of rural France, which is provocative.Check out her Italian Farmhouse Cookbook as well. It is luscious.

The loin of pork with the coriander crust is out of this world, and a regular at my house. Also, try the mashed yams and apples, which pairs nicely with the pork recipe.

French Cooking at Home

I received this cookbook at my Bridal Shower. I had never heard of the author before, but began to read the cookbook as a book. I was most impressed by the contents.Each recipe gives us a short story to where the recipe originated...location in France, and the family that makes it. I enjoyed the cookbook immensely as the author lives in France, yet is American, so she can explain how to replace those ingredients that we don't have here in the United States.Later, I began cooking from the book. Let me tell you, I was getting raving reviews from my fellow co-workers and since, the baby group I joined.I would recommned this book. Her recipes are easy to read and not complicated at all. Plus, it gives you the feeling that you are somewhere else...far away from your a more simpler time...the French Countryside!
