From the cover: Ask any French woman! For generations Tante Marie has been as familiar a household name in France as Mrs. Beeton has been in our own country. Now, for the first time, La Veritable Cuisine de Famille par Tante Marie has been translated and adapted for the British housewife.

Tante Maries French Kitchen is a practical guide to the preparation of those basic and simple dishes for which French home cooking is so famous. It is not an elaborate treatise for chefs about complicated dishes, although professional cooks do use it too. All the recipes and measurements have been adapted to everyday British practice. The most modest cook will be able to achieve with it those subtle touches that make French cooking unique.

There are 660 recipes in this book, the chapter on soups alone containing 40. No recipe contains ingredients that are not available in this country, yet in no case has the essential French character of any dish been altered. All recipes are indexed according to both their English and their French names.
