About the book
I Know How to Cook is the first English translation of France's cookery bible, Je sais cuisiner by Ginette Mathiot. First published in 1932, it is to France what The Silver Spoon and 1080 Recipes are to Italy and Spain: the indispensable cookbook for every household. With more than 1,400 recipes, Mathiot guides the reader through all the classics of French cuisine, both simple and elaborate, with a clear and authoritative voice. For the first time this classic work has been fully updated to suit modern kitchens, and the book offers up all the secrets of fabulous French home cooking.
