Mouthwatering, full-color photograph and step-by-step pictorial AND text instructions show cooks how to prepare numerous chicken dishes Anne Willan, director of La Varenne, the prestigious cooking school in Burgundy, shows how to make dishes such as Pinwheel Chicken with Herbs and Goat Cheese, Chicken Pot Pie with Herb Crust, Yorkshire Chicken with Stuffed Prunes, and dozens of other delightful entrees.
This book has wonderful recipes!
I thought this book was just okay. A few interesting recipes set in a very unappealing format. Sadly, not a keeper for me.
Easy to follow numbered, colored, pictures for each recipe with an introduction, "Why chicken?"
Excellent photos of the step by step instructions as well as the finished dish!

As a cook book junkie, I have a vast collection of books. This one, "Chicken Classics", is a very approachable choice. It offers clear directions, with wonderful color photographs. You will not get lost with this one. Some of the dishes were more popular than others with my family, and some of the recipies have a distinct British influence. Some recipies are great for everyday cooking, but several I'll save for when I really want to impress company - and the kids aren't home. One of the better written cookbooks I've found.
