A bistro is like an old friend-as soon as you walk in, there is an air of familiarity, a sense that it's always been there and always will be. A small family-run establishment, the traditional bistro serves timeless, comforting classics and seasonal specialities in modest surroundings. The service is fast and the prices are low. The bistro is a uniquely Parisienne invention. The recipes in Bistro are some of the many in the repertoire of every good bistro chef. This is food without pretense. But it is food that is delicious and timeless. From the classic onion soup to bourride and morue en bouillabaisse, the best tarte au citron, delicious rillettes and comforting coq au vin and cassoulet, great salads and fabulous vegetable dishes such as braised endives, artichauts a la barigoule and concombres saut?s, French Bistro is packed with wonderful food that is easy to prepare and delicious to enjoy.
