    Yup, loved them working with this book.
    Make it a chef's battle. Same recipe, each delivers their own interpretation.

    I'm late watching this, and it was great fun, but I'm really surprised at the seemingly general ignorance of what "pommes noisettes" are in England.

    I hate how they pronounce "filet". It drives me nuts.

    My husband is a chef & he still has his Le Repertoire De La Cuisine from school. This video filled him with evil glee, but he was also on your side & thought you did a solid job of interpreting.

    I've had that book from my early cheffing days and honestly all i actually do with it is make sure it's always discreetly obviously displayed in my recipe grab books without ever being grabbed.

    I mean i have read it, it's just not useful for much except when you can't remember the super fancy name for something. Mostly my kitchen terminology is more " oh just...mnh...* flappy spider finger gesture*" (note: this only works with chefs you know well or for freaking out the commis)

    "Pommes noisettes" are actually mashed potatoes mixed with eggs and potato starch, fried in a pan in little balls.
    "Fleurons" are baked.

    This is a great idea. I would love to see more dishes made from this book. Perhaps a head to head battle rather than a combined effort would be a cool twist.

    I actually think Ben is right about the nut shaped potatoes. He said it in a weird way but they are like mini potatoes. In Dutch we call them 'kriel'. I bet there is a British name too. Isnt it like baby potato or new potato?

    Idea: Get two people to memorize a similar recipe but with very different instructions. Tell them they were given the same recipe and have to work together to create it.

    Funny how many "cheffy" french words they say and yet they pronounce every single one of them completely wrong.

    There already have been some suggestions of getting a non-English cooking book.
    But I think this title deserves its own post
    (although someone might have suggested this already; I blame not being able to search this comment section):
    ( published by "Otava" and most recently revised by "Kaisa Isotalo" & "Raija Kuittinen" )
    is pretty much the "bible" of Finnish-kitchen.
    Not only it contains recipes. But it also contains technique-guides for various cooking methods and some "etiquette" things
    ( like how to set-up the table and so on ).
    Also this book predates "Le Répertoire De La Cuisine" by six years
    ( "Kotiruoka" was first published in 1908 ).

    As hinted, this book at the moment is only available in Finnish.
    But the recipes itself are quite simple and translating them shouldn't be an over-complex process.
