Recipes by The Scotto Sisters. From the introduction: “French cuisine has influenced every Western cuisine, to the extent that it has become an international symbol of prestige and quality. This grand culinary tradition, many centuries old, is an integral part of our culture. But by what route did France become the cradle of gastronomy? Certainly, this magnificent country is blessed with one of the most temperate of climates and an extraordinary abundance and diversity of produce from its different regions. But the existence of one of the world’s greatest gastronomies cannot be explained simply by the presence of fine produce; it needs its practitioners. Many people through the centuries have helped effect a slow transformation, and forged the characteristics of a tradition of fine cooking and eating that continues to evolve today.” Pictorial boards.
