French cuisine is still one of the most respected in the world, a byword for standard setting, style, elegance and, of course, exquisite flavours. It is also the foundation on which many other cuisines base their knowledge and development. For many though it can seem too complicated to achieve at home, perhaps other than seemingly simpler dishes like coq au vin or beef bourguignon. But a little knowledge goes a very long way in French cooking and can even help you to transform the simple into the sublime. The resources are the tremendous array of French cookbooks written since the first one ever published in the 14th century.
