Seems weird to talk first about the way a cookbook is written, before you get to the recipes, doesn't it? Well, this book was a delight from cover to cover. The recipes are fresh, simple, and ahead of their time, and Dr. Pomiane's wit and pleasure in good food, to say nothing of his sense of humour, shine through each one. Edouard de Pomiane was a Polish-born food scientist who lived and wrote in France during the 1930s and 40s, and his ideas are just as good now. No heavy sauces, no heavy seasonings - he wanted the pure, simple flavours of the food to be the star of the show. Excellent book, and worth looking for.
