    Like many people I think Olney's book is one of the very best cookery books available. I've had a copy for many years and its falling apart. Simple French Food is well written in an engaging style, and Olney not only communicates how to prepare food well and with respect, he often imparts why a particular dish is historically important. Many modern celebrity chefs owe their fame to rewriting Olney's work as their own. Everyone should own and use this book.

    If you are interested in the selection, preparation and presentation of food this book is both efficient and thorough.
    Olney draws distinctions between simplest and classic dishes, and gives wonderful surround to the recipes. I made his rabbit with red wine, and found it excellent. This is much more than just a French cookbook.
