About the Author

Ginette Mathiot (1907-1998), Officier de la Legion d'Honneur, taught three generations how to cook in France and is the ultimate authority on French home cooking. She wrote more than 30 best-selling cookbooks, covering all subjects in French cuisine. Je sais cuisine was her definitive, most comprehensive work, which brings together recipes for every classic French dish.
