Ginette Mathiot (1907–1998), Officier de la Legion d'Honneur, taught three generations how to cook in France and is the ultimate authority on French home cooking. She wrote more than 30 best-selling cookbooks, covering all subjects in French cuisine. Je sais cuisiner was her definitive, most comprehensive work, which brings together recipes for every classic French dish.

Parisian Clotilde Dusoulier is a food writer and an expert on French home cooking, who specialises in adapting traditional French dishes for modern readers. Author of several cookbooks, her vast knowledge of French food has led many fans to her Chocolate & Zucchini website and blog.

"When I first began my training as a chef I used this book on an almost daily basis – it’s utterly indispensable covering everything from how to boil an egg to how to cook the perfect lobster." —Marco Pierre White, Telegraph
