About Bistronomy

There is a new movement afoot in Paris. A new generation of chefs have turned their backs on stuffiness and are creating an experience that is more fun and a lot less formal. In tiny independent bistros mostly on the outskirts of the city, they are turning out fantastically inventive food that bypasses many of the old sauces and relies instead on the vibrancy of responsibly sourced ingredients. In Bistronomy, Jane Sigal captures these chefs’ creative approaches, culling recipes that translate their genius in ways the home cook can achieve. The over one hundred dishes featured prove that these Paris bistros have become the idea factories of the culinary world. Like a trip to Paris, Bistronomy will make you fall in love with French cooking all over again.
