The latest installment in Williams-Sonoma’s collection of glossy cookbooks presents readers with more than 40 French recipes by food-writer and consultant Rossen-Worthington (The Taste of Summer, etc.). Classic bistro fare is the mainstay of this book; recipes lean toward familiar, well-loved dishes like Pommes Frites, Salade Nicoise, Carmelized Onion Tart, Soupe au Pistou, Sole Meuniere, Coq au Vin, Tarte Tatin and Creme Brulee. Numerous sidebars and make-ahead tips explain such necessary details as the difference between pesto and pistou and the secret to making a good souffle (a spotlessly clean bowl and a big balloon whisk).
