Book Summary

James Beard writes:

"The great cuisine of France is flourishing in America, where it is striven after as the ultimate achievement.  French cooking is considered to be mental cooking--meaning careful planning, careful buying, and minute attention to detail.  Yet is should not be any more difficult for the average cook than any pother school of cookery, and I feel that one of the things that Alvin Kerr has accomplished in The Family Cookbook:  French is to erase people's fears that certain dishes are too much for them to undertake.  They merely require fresh approaches.  It is this newness of approach and an evident delight in creating a repertoire on international cookery that has inspired this very well-planned cookbook.
