"Simca's Cuisine" by Simone 'Simca" Beck in collaboration with Patricia Simon. Illustrations by John Wallner. Published by Alfred A. Knopf, 1972.

Simone Beck is known to millions of Americans as Julia Child's French partner in the creation of the two classic volumes of Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

"Here are recipes that were inspired by old French family specialties found in her mother's and grandmother's well - thumbed notebooks; recipes that grew out of Simca's life in the provinces ( particularly Normandy, Alsace, and Provence) where she has gardened, cooked, dined out, and entertained; simple delights and fabulous concoctions all set down with beautiful French clarity."

" Some of the menus, equally delicious, are more informal - the kinds of meals that Simca serves to family and close friends. Some are even more splendid. And, for each, Simca has written a charming, altogether personal introduction, filled with nuggets of useful information-in each case ending with a paragraph of crisp advice indicating precisely what can be cooked ahead of time, how long last-minute preparations take. Specific wines are always suggested with the menus, and specific cheeses when called for. In addition, there is a small collection of other favorite dishes that did not fit into the menus, but were simply too good to leave out. "
