Forget Jagger & Tyler. Bocuse is the real rock star. At 87 years old (he was born February 11, 1926) he does it like no one can. Think three-Michelin-starred restaurants, tons of brasseries, a hotel in Lyon, and restaurants throughout the world including Tokyo, New York and Disney World Orlando.
The man is a legend and as if this was not enough, he worked to create The Complete Recipes the ultimate guide to French cooking for us, the simple home cooks who desire culinary greatness (or at least a simple thank you from our families).
In this book, you will find 500 recipes by Chef Bocuse; simple, traditional French recipes that you and I can make, but even the most demanding and experienced chef would swoon for. There are 24 chapters; 14 of which are all about savory recipes. The other 8 deal with the sweet and everything in between.
And if you really don’t know anything about cooking, there are even handy guides for average cooking times, conversion tables, and a glossary of key French culinary terms.
You need this! You need it now!

“Bocuse: the complete recipes”
This book is massive and very beautiful. The crepe recipe turned out good. All the french basic dishes and more are included in this book. The price is high but after looking through the book, I don’t feel so bad. There is no stories, just recipes.Read more
