OK - based on reading the intro and just flipping through it, I am going to give this one five stars. I don't cook much so I am not going to go through the recipes, but it is well written and beautifully illustrated - and gosh, what a great idea! It will also be a great accoutrement for that much dreamed about sabbatical in Paris...

When you you say you've *read* a cookbook exactly?

Anyway, I had a half-hour of perusing this lovely book and I've decided I need to spend a lot more time with it.

The book goes through several flavours of ethnic cuisine, including Vietnamese, Japanese, Moroccan and other types of African cuisine. The recipes are easy to understand and diagrams have been provided for tricky pastry folding and suchlike.

There's also snippets of background information on the dishes and ingredients: what sort of

I've really enjoyed cooking from these recipes. The tangine makes your kitchen smell so good and reheats well for meals later on. The ghoriba are delicious and were a hit at a wedding I attended.

I love the illustrations and the suggestions of where to purchase ingredients and dine while in Paris. The bits of cultural history are a great inclusion. The one thing I would have liked to see is a list of possible substitutions for hard to find ingredients. Overall a fantastic cookbook.

A view of the different food cultures in Paris. It's a shame that no one has done the same for London to my knowledge where there is even greater diversity.
Great recipes, very '60's/'70's reminiscent illustrations, a scattering of various fonts and details of appropriate restaurants, what's there not to like?

Well-done cookbook that tells the history about all the different ethnicities in Paris, as well restaurant and grocery stores available in the city. Yummy recipes too, and there is a bunch that I would like to try, especially from the Moroccan and Laotian sections.

Even better than the recipes are the stories that go with them.
