    Patricia Wells is a well known and long standing French cookbook author--the New York Times did a Notable Cookbook review of 2013 and this turned up near the top of the list, so I checked it out--it is a beautifully produced cookbook, with gorgeous pictures and good quality paper. the recipe that stood out for me was the Cold Shrimp Vietnamese salad.

The book is largely populated with French recipes but this one from the colonies is a real find--not only is it easy and delicious, it can be assembled well ahead of time, so you don't have to be messing with it at the last minute either. Well worth checking out, this cookbook!

    A bit uppity. Not much new in it. Too many uppity ingredients, i.e. "Preferably Vietnamese cinnamon" etc. Makes it too hard for a regular, good cook.

    Good recipes not much skills The French kitchen cookbook Patricia Wells, cookbook author and teacher, states this cookbook is aimed at those who want to learn how to think about food and cooking in a way that is flexible to their changing needs. Given that a week of cooking classes costs upward of $6000, this seems like a very reasonable opportunity to develop some of the skills from these classes. But, the cookbook really doesn’t deliver much in the way of skills.

Given that a week of cooking classes costs upward of $6000, this seems like a very reasonable opportunity to develop some of the skills from these classes. But, the cookbook really doesn’t deliver much in the way of skills. Recipes are clearly detailed, fairly simply and mostly French with Asian accents here and there. But most recipes seem party like rather than every day (sashimi, duck, sorbets, fresh shell beans, zucchini blossoms, truffles, etc). There is not as much explanation of techniques as you might expect in a teachers cookbook. For example, she steams rather then sautés onions for an appetizer, which seems like a much less flavorful choice, why? Anecdotes and pictures reflect Wells’ relationship with other chefs like Julia Child and her cookery collection. Some recipe pictures but lots of pictures of dishes, table settings and people. There are lots of recommendations for purchases through Wells Amazon page. There are some really nice recipes in this book but it’s does not deliver much in the way of teachinjg.

    Great Recipes This book offers a small glimpse at her life in France. Many great recipes that I would love to try if I had more friends to cook for. Great reference book.

    I adore French food and was excited to read this book by someone who not only was inspired by Julia Child but who had her as a friend and mentor. Clearly divided into meat and meat-free chapters, the colourful and classic recipes bring a taste of France right to your table. The back of the book has some lovely sorbet flavours like Pumpkin Pie and Apricot Lavender Honey Sorbet. (I have Lavender Honey in my kitchen, yummy!) Great for new ideas for home or get togethers.

    Simple and healthy food Not only are the recipes unusual and delicious. But the cookbook has beautiful pictures and a joy to read. Her cookbooks just whet my desire to attend one of her cooking classes all the more.

    Pretentious antique collecting name-dropper, not interested in trying any of her recipes.

    Some intriguing recipes but I don't like recipe books where there are a number of hard to find ingredients
