    This is one volume in a series on national cuisine. But the books are actually more than that. They also tell us some about the culture; there are some very nice photos throughout. The author, at the outset, notes that, since the volume covers a country with many different foods, "Even a comprehensive book like this one cannot do justice to them all." He observes that the intent, then, is "focused on certain selected products which will highlight the flair, expertise, and skill of famous and les [...]

    This isn't a cook book as we know it - it's more than that. Culinaria has created a whole series, so you can find not only France, but other countries like Spain, Greece, Russia, Canada, Italy etc. It's a book about a specific country, but looking at it from the "kitchen's" point of view ;) Culinaria tells a story, a story of how each region of given country was 'created' by it's food. How life is still surrounded by local produce, regional traditional cuisine and it's people - people with, som [...]

    This book transports me back to my aunt's kitchen in France! The details are astounding in each section. Photographs of foods with description of use make this the most thorough book I've found that also offers beautiful artwork. I've only found similarly wonderful books in France so I relish using this one. Each recipe is complete and considers the reader by including the ingredient amounts in grams AND in American measurements (ounces, pounds). Furthermore, the book is divided by region so you [...]

    This is my favorite set of cookbooks. These are like travel guides. Each region is carefully explained, and the food that region is known for is detailed. The pictures are exquisite. The books are so heavy that I have to get them down off the shelf for my mom and put her at the dining room table (as she's too little to hold these in her lap)! I have not made many of the recipes out of them, but I have made some breads, soups, and coq au vin out of France. Each one turned out very well, although [...]

    As it is a book about food, there are some recipes, followed by beautiful photos, but not a lot of them. This is more of a tale, introduction to a world of French food. See my full review here anulaskitchen/2010/01/

    Incredibly informative—especially when it comes to French wines and cheeses—but the design of the book prevents me from giving it a 4-star rating. Each of the Culinaria books seems to follow a different layout, and this one was my least favorite.

    I have three Culinaria books: France, Germany and Hungary. I have read them all several times. I Simply love them.
