When I finished writing, but before Le Kitchen Cookbook: a Workbook was published, I asked my husband, Mark, to read it from cover to cover. He was the first one to do so and I needed to know if it made sense and what, if anything, needed to be edited.
A few weeks later, he made dinner, a simple chicken paillard, but when I tasted it, he had made a sauce that had so much flavor, I was surprised; this wasn’t anything he had done before.
“Wow this is delicious,” I said. “Where did you learn how to make this sauce?”
“I read your book,” he replied.
That’s when I knew the book did exactly what I hoped; it taught him skills he was able to use to cook a really good meal. Not by following a recipe, but because he’d learned basic techniques as well as how to use ingredients to build great flavor.
And, to my amazement, he learned how to do this with just one reading.
I asked Mark what he would say he got out of reading Le Kitchen Cookbook: a Workbook. Here are his thoughts:
“Acquiring skills has made me a much more confident cook. Learning the basics has changed cooking from a task to something fun I can share. When I sit down to share a meal I’ve made, with family and friends, I have such a feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction.”
If these results are what you’re looking for, then Le Kitchen Cookbook: a Workbook may well be the book for you.

One more thing, if you have a moment, could you tell me in the comments, below, what areas you’d like me to write more about:
· The French lifestyle
· How to make easy sauces
· Creating table settings
· Easy entertaining
· Or . . . you tell me.
"The Book / Workbook is awesome, very well organized and just the right level and count of recipes. As someone that learned to cook reading Jaques Pepin's "La Technique," your book offers readers an update and perhaps more user-friendly recipe guide. Congratulations!"
