Recipes without pretence, no complicated techniques or expensive ingredients, just good, honest home cooking. That's what Bistro is!
A bistro, a uniquely Parisian invention, is like an old friend ? as soon as you walk in there is an air of familiarity, a sense that it?s always been there and always will be. Usually a small family-run establishment, the traditional bistro serves timeless, comforting classics and seasonal specialities, in modest surroundings where the service is usually fast and the prices low. The recipes in Bistro are some of the many in the repertoire of every good bistro chef. This is food without pretence. But it is food that is delicious and timeless - from the classic onion soup and bouillabaisse to duck breast with peaches to the best tarte au citron and fondant au chocolat.
