French Lessons is a comprehensive and colourful guide to mastering French cooking from one of Australia's most popular and innovative chefs. Drawing on his training and experience in the kitchens of French restaurants in Europe and Australia, Justin North has compiled this beautifully designed, all-encompassing volume that demystifies French cooking, explaining each technique in clear language as Justin guides home cooks through each recipe. A guide to the basics — essential ingredients and equipment — guides readers to the heart of the book: 23 individual lessons, each based on a particular course or technique. Chapters include basic Stocks and Soups, Sauces and Pastries, and also Steaming, Poaching, Braising, Grilling and Frying. Sweeter courses are Sorbets and Ice Creams, Fruit and Chocolate. French Lessons contains more than 300 recipes. They are simple and straightforward, and each comes with Justin's recommendations for accompaniments. Recipes are illustrated in full colour throughout, and are teamed with step-by-step technique shots to ensure clarity and understanding. This is a must-have for every kitchen — and will become a well-loved companion to anyone interested in French cookery and expanding their repertoire.
