"French cookery is synonymous with fine cookery. It seems to be a part of the culture and national pride of the Frenchman to be an excellent cook.
All through France a truly fine meal can be had in any home or the most obscure or the most celebrated restaurant. In fact it is difficult to have an indifferent meal in France. American housewives often consider French cookery difficult. Some is, but much of it is very simple if done with care. The care taken is the most important consideration in cooking. Also important in learning to cook in the french manner is the willingness to go from simple recipes to elaborate a step at a time. Master the sauces included in this collection and you will have accomplished half the battle. Then proceed WITH CARE. Bon appetite."
