This is a translated and adapted version of Ginette Mathiot’s Je Sais Faire les Conserves, a follow up to her previous books on classic French cooking and French baking, which updates classic French preserving techniques that were first published in 1948.
Similar to my work on France: The Cookbook and The Art of French Baking, I have worked on this project as a consulting editor, with a team made up of a translator, a copy editor, and the editor at Phaidon, to make Ms. Mathiot’s guide to preserving accessible for modern cooks.
“A vibrant package crammed with every recipe you’ll ever need to conserve, salt, pickle, and smoke your own fresh produce.
