I Know How to Cook

Return to Previous Page


I Know How to Cook is the first English translation of France’s ultimate 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 1,200 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, which have been known to domestic cooks in France for over 70 years.


‘… admirably comprehensive and clear … beautifully illustrated, too.’
Nick Curtis, Evening Standard‘Putting Ginette Mathiot on your shelf is akin to discovering a French grandmother you didn’t know you had. … this will teach you everything you need to learn about classic French cooking.’
Sally Hughes, Books for Cooks, London, The Bookseller

‘Want the perfect coq au vin or crepe suzette? This is the book for you’
Daily Mail

‘I Know How to Cook … includes everything you need to know … to take on almost any reasonable home-cooking challenge with Gallic flair.’
The Wall Street Journal

‘A comprehensive collection.’
The New York Times Book Review

‘Pure French cuisine.’
Associated Press
