"La Bonne Soupe Cookbook"$45.00
The phrase la bonne soupe has come to mean the good life, with health, wealth and happiness. Jean-Paul and Monique Picot took the bistro's name from the avant garde comedy "La Bonne Soupe" by the French playwright Félicien Marceau, which had a long successful run in Paris in the 1950's. Their midtown Manhattan bistro, opened in 1974, is full of French country charm (red-and-white-checked tablecloths, exposed beams, waitstaff with accents).
"La Bonne Soupe Cookbook" offers a hundred recipes from the quintessential French-American bistro, including directions for preparing their award-winning onion soup and other delectables: cheese fondue, stews, cassoulet, quiches, and omelettes, poisson and poulet. Menu suggestions accompany most recipes, completing a lunch or dinner, and providing bread and wine recommendations. And charming snapshots and anecdotes capture the spirit of bistro cooking.
