    As a serious cook and serial buyer of cook books (mostly by professional cooks), I am used to using and consuming books of this stature on a fairly regular bases.What I have learnt to expect from my cook books is great recipes, accurately reproduced and easy to follow. Sadly, Monsieur Robuchon fails to provide the clarity and reliability that I have come to expect (and that most experienced, knowledgeable and skillfull home cooks whould expect)...While all the French standards are there, one is forced to ask the question "were these recipes tested in domestic kitchens?" I suspect not.Whilst seasonal cookbooks are all well and good, I would still welcome an index which works the conventional way (See Foie Gras in this diatribe of "how great am I") by including all the recipes contained therein.On the subject of "seasonal", I find it fascinating as an immigrant living in France that the word "Seasonal" crops up in all sorts of food publications. Not only here in France but also in numerous publications about French cuisine, written in other languages. In these publications there seems to be no mention of the vast amount of tinned, bottled and dried vegetables sold and consummed on a daily basis in France, taking no account of what's seasonal. Not to mention the huge choice of "mousseline" or, to the uninitiated, Powdered Mash, available to those unable to peel a potatoe, whatever the time of year.As a real enthusiast of good French food, prepared simply, using the finest and freshest local produce available, I found Monsuier Robucon's book unhelpful, uninspiring and inaccurate.Having had the opportunity to watch his Monday to Friday spot on French morning TV a number of times, I have formulated the opinion that he would like to preserve what he sees as the "mystisqe" behind his profession.In other words, Joel Robuchon doesn't care whether his "recipes" work for you or not.
