Everything You Need to Know to be a Good Cook

This is not an ordinary cookbook.


Most cookbooks tell you to follow a recipe and you’ll create good food. They do not teach you how to cook; they teach you how to follow instructions.


This cookbook is a workbook that teaches you how to cook, explaining the interplay between techniques, flavors, and how to combine them into a delicious dish, or how to adjust a recipe into something that better suits your family’s tastes. It also gives you space to make notes of your successes, what worked and didn’t and there is room to write down the recipes you create. This process puts you in charge and gives you confidence.


Imagine the freedom you’ll feel when you enter the kitchen knowing you’re not a slave to a recipe. Instead, you can play with ingredients and flavors, and create something that is not only really good, c'est fantastique! That’s when cooking is really fun!

  • Over 100 recipes

  • 361 pages, paperback

  • 8" x 10" format 

  • Room to write notes and your own recipes

About Le Kitchen
"I love this cookbook! The recipes are terrific.

More than that though, this book invites us into a delicious world of flavors; it walks us through basic preparation and cooking techniques. As I use this book, I feel increasingly more comfortable with my own cooking, this coming from someone who is of a certain age who has been cooking for years! Thank you, Adeline, and Bravo!"



"The enjoyment of cooking! Le Kitchen Cookbook created by Adeline Olmer is a breath of fresh air to new and seasoned cooks alike. Having been the beneficiary of a family of talented but competitive cooks; my own turn at the stove didn’t arrive until much later; hence my appreciation of the detailed yet simple descriptions in Le Kitchen Cookbook of kitchen fundamentals and how to cook easily and successfully.

Adeline’s encouragement; the delicious recipes and her insightful stories brought back wonderful dining memories and the inspiration to put the apron back on!
