Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback, this landmark, debut cookbook from Richard Olney is brimming with over 150 authentic recipes that capture the flavors and spirit of the French countryside.

Originally published in 1970, The French Menu Cookbook is one of the most important culinary works of the twentieth century. It has served as a foundational resource and beacon to cooks worldwide—including visionaries like Alice Waters—who redefined American cuisine. Well ahead of his time, Olney champions a seasonal approach to cooking and provides thoughtful, intriguing wine pairings. This revolutionary text offers masterfully arranged menus for every occasion, from casual dinners for two to decadent soirees. In paperback for the first time, this celebrated kitchen classic is a must-have for adventurous home cooks, chefs, gourmets, and Francophiles alike.

About the Author

Born and raised in Iowa, RICHARD OLNEY (1927–1999) was one of the most distinguished and influential food writers in recent history. Olney moved to France in his mid-20s, and resided in Paris and Provence. He wrote a column for the journal Cuisine et Vins de France and edited Time-Life’s 28-volume The Good Cook series. Olney authored eight books, including Simple French Food and Lulu’s Provençal Table.
