Aside from the recipes, which are fantastic, this is a book to sit down and READ for enjoyment. The photographs are beautiful. I borrowed this from the local library and plan to purchase my own copy. A few of the recipes are involved (the ingredients have recipes), but most of them are simple to make in your own kitchen. The section on sauces is a help for anyone who didn't go to cooking school or take classes.

Reinforced throughout the book: Enjoy the food, use minimal spices and herbs & eat locally in season. Be able to taste the food you are eating instead of overpowering them with spice and other flavors. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 160774547X, Hardcover)

A narratively rich cookbook of French and Californian recipes from longtime Chez Panisse executive chef Jean-Pierre Moulle and his wife, Denise Moulle.

 
Jean-Pierre and Denise Moullé met on a street corner in Berkeley, California, in 1980; six months later they were married. French Roots is the story of their lives told through the food they cook—beginning with the dishes of old-world France, the couple’s birthplace, and focusing on the simple, pared-down preparations of French food common in the postwar period. The story then travels to the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1970s, where Jean-Pierre was appointed executive chef at Chez Panisse when California cuisine was just emerging as a distinctive and important style, and where Denise began importing French wine. Finally, the journey follows the couple to their homes in Sonoma, California, and Bordeaux to revisit the classic dishes of the Moullés’ native country and hone the forgotten skills of foraging, hunting, and preserving. 

Exquisitely written, with recipes that are innovative and timeless, insights on cooking and thinking like a chef, and an insider’s guide to the wines of Bordeaux, French Roots is much more than a cookbook—it’s a guide to living the good life.
