2013 Beard Award Winner--Cookbook Hall of Fame

Renowned for her cooking school in France and her many best-selling cookbooks, Anne Willan combines years of hands-on experience with extensive research to create a brand new classic. More than 250 recipes range from the time-honored La Truffade, with its crispy potatoes and melted cheese, to the Languedoc specialty Cassoulet de Toulouse, a bean casserole of duck confit, sausage, and lamb. And the desserts! Crêpes au Caramel et Beurre Salé (crêpes with a luscious caramel filling) and Galette Landaise (a rustic apple tart) are magnifique. Sprinkled with intriguing historical tidbits and filled with more than 270 enchanting photos of food markets, villages, harbors, fields, and country kitchens, this cookbook is an irresistible celebration of French culinary culture.

Anne Willan is an award-winning cooking teacher, food writer, and the author of more than 30 cookbooks. She operates La Varenne, her esteemed cooking school, at Chateau du Fey in Burgundy, France.

James, you are an ASS! Jessica's Biscuit is and has always been a great resource for cookbooks. I've never once had a problem with them. You wasted valuable space complaining about a book that was unavailable just because you needed it in a rush! Grow up! Now back to the book ... it is excellent! You won't be disappointed!

Another reviewer reviews his sad tale of poor service,not this book. This book is a gem, as is all of Anne Willian's books. The Country Cooking of France is good value for the money with many classics and some I hadn't ever heard of. Many here I will try as soon as the weather here in California cools down a little more. French comfort food at it's best!

Save yourself the hassle of wasting time with sub-par online retailers like Jessica's Biscuit and and shop first at Amazon. I originally ordered Anne Willan's "The Country Cooking of France" in February hoping to have the book quickly to prepare a French dinner for some guests in March. However, I was informed on March 1 that my order had been canceled since Jessica's Biscuit did not have the book any longer since it was not in print. However, when I ordered it from the website it said that it was "In Stock." I supposed this to be true as Jessica's Biscuit claims to have the largest online cookbook inventory. So, after having my order canceled I moved on to I placed my order promptly on March 1 and received confirmation that my order would be shipped shortly. However, as of March 15 I had heard nothing. After calling customer service with twice, I was informed that they did not have the book in stock and that my order would be coming from a different vendor: Jessica's Biscuit, the company that failed me so horribly the first time. Regardless, I was given a shipping confirmation that day and thought that all would be well. I was wrong. Today, March 21, I received in the mail not Willan's "The Country Cooking of France" but a Food Network Magazine cookbook called "Great Easy Meals." Not quite French comfort food. I contacted Jessica's Biscuit where the customer assistance representative was defensive and acted as if this disaster was my fault. I said that I wanted my order canceled as I would be shopping with Amazon to have my order properly filled. However, I was told that I am responsible to ship the cookbook back. Put most simply, this was an all-around terrible shopping experience, and I will NEVER purchase anything from Jessica's Biscuit or again. As a side note, Willan's "The Country Cooking of France" will arrive from Amazon to my door tomorrow, and I ordered it 20 minutes ago.
