    Book Description
    From Booklist
    The Parisian bistro scene conjures as many images of Gauloises and Piaf as it does of veal stews and floating islands. This CD-book multimedia presentation aims to associate jazz, that quintessentially American musical form, with French cookery. O'Connor has compiled recipes from some of Paris' most celebrated bistros. Two American bistros, one on each coast, and a Montreal establishment also rate notice. For tourists needing to know more about the surroundings of the Parisian establishments, a "neighborhood walk" introduces parks and sites around each eatery. Each bistro has divulged an appetizer, entree, and dessert recipe. Terrines, steak frites, roast chicken, and tarte tatin, form the core of this cuisine. Most dishes are such classics that there are few surprises among the recipes, but a moderate level of cooking skill is useful to execute them successfully. Mark Knoblauch

    Product Description:
    Authentic recipes from Parisian bistros are perfect for simple, celebratory meals with family and friends. Classic dishes like French Onion Soup, Coq au Vin, and Tarte Tatin capture the tastes of easy, old-fashioned French cooking. A description of each bistros style and neighborhood guides to nearby sights and amusements lead readers on a gourmet tour of Paris.

    With sections on how to order like a true Parisian, a bistro menu glossary, and suggestions for dining bistro-style at home, this is the perfect volume for confirmed francophiles, first-time visitors to France, and everyone interested in enjoying French cuisine, family style. The accompanying compact disc of tunes by Edith Piaf, Django Reinhardt, and George Gershwin sets a stylish and romantic Parisian mood to complete the bistro experience.
