When French Women Cook: A Gastronomic Memoir
When French Women Cook is about Mimi and Marie-Charlotte and Claire and Magaly and four other women who gave a young girl her first lessons in living to eat. The girl was, of course, Madeleine Kamman, and her beautifully written first book, with more than 250 recipes, has been in print since 1976. This classic cookbook now has a new cover, one that brings to life the stories of the women inside.
