The beloved sequel to the bestselling classic, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Volume II presents more fantastic French recipes for home cooks. Working from the principle that "mastering any art is a continuing process," here Julia Child and Simone Beck have gathered together a brilliant selection of new dishes that will bring you to a yet higher level of culinary mastery. They have searched out more of the classic dishes and regional specialties of France, and adapted them so that Americans, working with American ingredients, in American kitchens, can achieve the incomparable flavors and aromas that bring up a rush of memories--of lunch at a country inn in Provence, of an evening at a great Paris restaurant, of the essential cooking of France. From French bread to salted goose, from peasant ragoûts to royal Napoleons, recipes are written with the same detail, exactness, and clarity that are the soul of Mastering the Art of French Cooking.… (more)

What is there to say? This is perhaps one of the most iconic cookbooks of all time. ( )
  lesmel | May 21, 2013 |
Great follow up and compaion to volume 1. This volume is important for me becuase it has the chapters on baking bread as well as more advanced recipes on topics covered in volume one. The edition I have also has an index that covers both volumes one and two so you can look things up from both volumes in one place. ( )

I wanted this book for a long time. What a nice Christmas present from DH!. This is a winner and as good as I had thought. ( )

Not quite as good as Volume I, but still worthwhile. ( )
  VenusofUrbino | Dec 11, 2007 |
This is the follow on book to the successful first volume. The chapter on proper french breads is particularly useful. Overall this volume covers Soups, Baking, Meats, Chickens, Charcuterie, Vegetables, and Desserts. If you have not tried Tian de Courgetttes au Riz (page 371), please do so the next time your garden gives you an abundance of zucchini. ( )

Disambiguation notice
Mastering The Art of French Cooking, Volume 1 (1961), and Mastering The Art of French Cooking, Volume 2 (1970) are substantially different from each other and should not be combined. Neither should the individual volumes be combined with the two volume set, which is comprised of both individual volumes but substantially different than either single book. Only Volume 2 should be combined here.
