FRENCH HOME COOKING

A collection of characteristic French dishes, adaptable to the average American family, is intended as a supplementary book to tempt most tastes. The individual recipes are arranged in the conventional categories, from hors d'oenvres to savories; they require careful rather than complicated preparation -- and are not for the most part expensive (occasionally they are rare- rolled nasturtium leaves)- and in the meat section, there is a prudent use of cheaper cuts and leftovers. Herbs and wines are of course de rigueur, and all in all, the dishes dished up will be subtle and attractive.
