5.0 étoiles sur 5 An incomparable little cookbook! Priceless, just like the treasured institutions that good Bistros are. 19 septembre 2016
Par Curious Onlooker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have recently started cooking from this book and it is quickly climbing to the top of the chart of my favorite cookbooks. This is no small task considering that this book has no pictures, is not a recent publication, and is competing with books in my collection on French cookery from such stalwarts as Julia Child, Paula Wolfert, Richard Olney, Jacques Pepin, and Anne Willan.

The book embodies the atmosphere of a bistro in look, content and spirit. The book is printed on thick paper that does not have smooth edges (are these called deckled edges?). This gives the book a dated but timeless look, and revived in me warm memories of reading menus in French bistros and the delights that followed. Not only do French Bistros serve good hearty meals, they are also utilitarian in nature where the high finesse of formal French dining is shed for a more relaxed and efficient experience. In keeping with that utilitarian spirit, the book covers have flaps that can be used to earmark pages.

A Bistro above all is a gathering place for the locals to converge and chat over a fine meal. To capture that atmosphere the book employs an easy conversational style. Recipes begin with an anecdote about the recipe or the bistro. This is followed by a uncomplicated but hearty recipe. There are tips, suggestions for alterations, and quotations scattered throughout the book which make it interesting enough that I often read it before bedtime. What I also like is that the recipes are collected in simple menus from various Bistros. Using a menu and following the recipes one can easily create a 2-3 course meal. The wine suggestions are a welcome inclusion.

The recipes themselves are simple. They often call for just two main ingredients (not counting the basic oil/butter and salt/pepper), and yet result in unqualified successes. So far I have tried the Chicken with Garlic, Chicken with Red Wine Vinegar, Potato Salad with Herrings, and a few Potato Gratins. Each time we have ending up licking our fingers wondering how can something this simple taste that good! I would suggest using the best ingredients that one can find. Although this is advisable in any kind of cooking, it is particularly true for recipes such as those in this book that use so few ingredients.

After laboring on an exquisite recipe from Julia Child, I have to admit to the occasional thought crossing my mind, “ Do French families really cook this way every day?”. I now know the answer. Bistro Cooking is a very good book for every day cooking. It is also an excellent resource for those who are beginning to cook. To such novice chefs I urge do not let the lack of pictures dissuade you. In the end what you really want is food that tastes great without a lot of effort or fancy ingredients. This book, with its succinct and precise directions, shall deliver on that goal over and over again. Success from this book shall bolster your confidence and help you tackle recipes from other authors mentioned earlier.

I generally wait to try many recipes from a book before reviewing it. But my enthusiasm for this book got the better of me. I look forward to cooking more from this book, to rekindling fond memories of my favorite French Bistros, to sharing this food with friends and family, and to licking my fingers in contentment afterwards. Mangez bien, riez souvent, aimez beaucoup!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Literate introduction to bistro cooking! 19 juin 2011
Par Steven Peterson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
What is a bistro? Patricia Wells, the author, says (Page x): "Most simply, a bistro is a small neighborhood restaurant serving home-style, substantial fare."

The book is divided into a number of sections: hors d'oeuvres and first dishes, Soups, Salads, Pastas, Seasonal vegetables, Potatoes, Eggs (cheese, tarts), Fish and shellfish, Poultry, Meat, Desserts, and Pastries.

The recipes provide hearty food. Soups? An onion soup; Monkfish soup with garlic cream; Leek, potato, and bacon soup. Fish? Codfish with herbed tomato sauce is intriguing (tomato and fish don't seem to go well together to me--based on some unfortunate dining experiences--but this works! Other examples: Smoked haddock with Savoy cabbage; Oven-roasted scallops. Poultry? Chicken with tarragon vinegar; Chicken sautéed with scallops; Roast duck with olives. And on it goers.

The recipes are easy to understand. Not all are quite so simple, but the array of recipes provides a good resource for the kitchen.

All in all, a nice work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bistro Cooking, A Love Affair 19 octobre 2009
Par NorthernBelle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Julie Child taught you to cook French food. In Bistro Cooking, Patricia Wells teaches you to fall in love with it.

I bought this book on a whim about 20 years ago when I was starting out on my own, and today I credit it with teaching me to cook. This book caused me not just to like, but to love, French cooking, which I had previously regarded as either too tyrannical or just not that interesting. Thanks to this magnificent little volume, French cooking is now a very easy and natural part of my life.

This book absolutely oozes charm, and Mrs. Wells' enthusiasm and joy on the pages of it are infectious. One of the best things she does is to just plain motivate you to get in the kitchen and start cooking. The spirit of this book is light-hearted and fun, but make no mistake, Mrs. Wells' knowledge of French food, and of cooking in general, is anything but light. Bistro Cooking is the reference I turn to again and again when I want an honest-to-goodness recipe for a dish such as a roast chicken, a potato gratin, a chocolate cake or a fruit tart. (The chocolate mousse on page 244 is the most divine thing I have ever tasted.) The recipes are authentic, tried and true, and cannot be beat.

What is it that makes this book so special? Maybe it is the vintage-looking black and white photos, the charming illustrations or the quaint French menus. Maybe it is the total do-ability of the recipes, for surely there is not a reason in the world why you couldn't make any of them? It's not really a question of whether you CAN make the recipes in this book, it is a question of whether you can RESIST making them. Maybe it is all the helpful advice that is so comfortably offered throughout that gives one the sense that they would acquire more practical culinary know-how by using Bistro Cooking than they would if they were to enroll in cooking school for a year. Maybe it is the feeling you get when you sit down in your favorite chair and open the book that you are stepping right through its pages into another time and place. Yes, I admit that armchair travelers such as myself will love it, but they will also love knowing that Mrs. Wells is an absolute authority on French food and that the recipes in this book are so good they should be considered the standard by which other recipes for the same dishes ought to be judged. Or maybe it's the feeling you get from reading her description of a dish that the recipe that follows for it is not just a formula for making very good food but surely for happiness itself. Maybe it's everything.

I can promise you this: This is a cookbook unlike any you have ever owned and if you acquire it, it will occupy a very special place, not only on your bookshelf, but in your life and in your heart.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 one of my favorite cookbooks 3 mars 2013

I have used this book for many years and recently bought it for a family member. The recipes are delightfully simple and breathtakingly authentic. Wells understands food and has included recipes that beautifully represent their regions, demanding simple fresh ingredients and showcasing those ingredients. Even thought it's paperback, it makes a good gift, one you can offer and know that all the recipes will turn out well. At least all the ones I prepared, which are about half the book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a favorite 2 octobre 2010
Par J. Janssen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is one of my favorite cookbooks and I think I've prepared more dishes out of it than just about any other I own. In fact, it's so good I bought it twice! When I moved it somehow disappeared and as soon as I realized it I ordered another copy. The recipes are all little classics purloined from the bistro/cafe settings of france. And while not a regional survey the author does a nice job of incorporating various gastronomical locales other than Paris/Lyon for which this style of cooking is most famous. I would also note that it's not the glitzy coffee table book that Patricia Wells has become associated with later in her career (she is a professional writer, not a chef) but it does contain some evocative B&W photos of pre-war bistro scenes. No color photos of either the dishes or the scenery; the value here is recipes and lots of them, from entree to side dish (several wonderful gratins) to salads, soups, etc. The best of Wells' books and highly recommended.
