Recommendations for a French (language) cookbook?

lapetitechou | Nov 17, 2008 10:26 PM

I am a prospective French culinary arts student. I studied French for about a year in university, but living in Japan for the last 2+ years has seriously decreased my French language ability. Thus, I've decided to buckle down and study French in terms of cooking, so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for good French language, French cuisine cookbooks?

I haven't had a lot of experience cooking French cuisine, but since I want to go to culinary school, purchasing books that utilize more advanced techniques wouldn't be out of the question. Some books I've seen recommended in other places:

Mastering the Art of French Cooking Vol. I & II
La Methode and La Technique
La Cuisine de Marché

Thoughts on those and any other cookbooks?
