This cover of "French Comfort Food" caught my eye at the library. Isn't it pretty?

I'm willing to try new foods and recipes so I was excited to give this one a go. Two favorites here, French and comfort foods but I have a few requirements for cookbooks before I buy..more on that in a minute.

I tried at least a dozen recipes. Main dishes and desserts. I didn't mind the occasional substitutions (e.g. pre-packaged puff pastry) and the departure from the everyday was more than welcome.

Favorites were
Page 51: Individual Caramelized Onion and Roquefort Clafoutis.
Page 67: Irresistible Potato, Cheese, and Cream Casserole.
Page 68: Tart Apple Turnovers
Page 81: Crispy Cinnamon Walnut Chocolate Palmiers
Page 129: Potato, Bacon, Cheese, and Wine Casserole

And the soups were incredible.

Photographs and recipe outline are a big thing for me. A cookbook can hold great photos but contain a lousy recipe layout, or vice versa. I, personally, am a stickler about both. Hillary Davis accomplished an easily navigated reading format, excellent recipes, and beautiful photos (of which, could have been more, but not at the loss of recipes). I was so impressed I bought the book in a hardcopy. Its quite beautiful. ( )

NATIONAL & REGIONAL CUISINE. In France, people take pride in preserving the recipes of their regional heritage and deeply rooted traditions.
