    1. OK - I'm really conflicted as to how to rate this one. It's a delight to read. Olney is strongly opinionated, perhaps even a bit of a crank.The recipe content is anything but simple - it's full of homemade aspics (veal knuckle anyone?) and fancy terrines - but the writing is great fun to read. His rant about pâté had me laughing out loud.As for his basic techniques, especially for eggs, the degree to which his commandments align with Cook's Illustrated's is uncanny.I'm not really through with [...]


    2. Crankiest cook book ever. I love it. I think my husband and I cooked from it once-- a pisaladiere?-- note that simple does not mean easy. Great reading, though. (Also, I am convinced that the Harry Mathews story, Country Cooking, takes its inspiration from Olney.)


    3. Richard Olney is amongst the best writers in English to translate French food for a non-French audience--this book and Lulu's Provencal Table are must reads for anyone interested in the history of French cuisine


    4. It's just been reissued, and I was pleased to be able to pick up a copy! I'm not so sure I'd call these recipes "simple", but this is a great cookbook to read and the recipes look delicious-I can't wait to try!


    5. I haven't tried any of the recipes, but he writes about the "vulgar, rustic, robust" food so ardently that I have to keep dipping into it. My edition has a detail of a Cezanne still life on the cover which somehow sums up the whole experience of this book


    6. Let's just say that simple is relative! An interesting book, but not one that I feel the need to buy or copy down recipes from, as I do some cookbooks.
