As a person who has struggled to learn French for several years, I found Elisabeth de Châtillon’s cookbook, The Hands On French Cookbook: Connect with French through Simple, Healthy Cooking (A unique book for learning French language) a great way to help a person learn to read French recipes in a fun way, as well as help understand the language. de Châtillon’s idea to make a cookbook with instructions and cooking basics in both French and English is fabulous. There are good instructions for reading the recipes, which is helpful.
The recipes are easy-to-follow in step-by-step instructions written in both French and English. Once learned, readers will be able to cook from other French cookbooks. This is a good book for beginning French students who want to learn to cook. It certainly isn’t going to teach anyone to be fluent in French, but is a good start.
It would be nice if there were more recipes, but the ones that are included are good, and the photographs are beautiful. By learning the cooking terms and seeing them written in French, almost anyone can learn to use French cookbooks and turn out French dishes that are picture perfect.
Although this cookbook isn’t a substitute for serious French language studies, it’s fun and will help anyone learn important cooking terms. It’s a fun cookbook for older children, and would make a good and unique gift.
Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
