I was surprised the delivery was so quick!...I received the book in a few days after ordering.I enjoy cooking and find this particular Volume 1 most interesting.I tried the Beef Bourginon, very easy to follow and absolutely one astounding dish....and can't wait to try some of the others.
This is the book I wanted, but would have appreciated knowing it was a soft-cover edition... I looked at the description on Overstock, and if that information was there and I just missed it, then my apologies. Regardless, I'm pleased to have the book.
I have always wanted to explore french cooking, this was very easy to follow with history of recipes and ideas for wine and flavor pairings for each dish. Each step detailed and with things mostly found in my own kitchen. I'm enjoying learning the traditions of spice and spirits in cooking.
I found this to be a great way to see how people ate and cooked in the not-so-distant past. It is amazing to see how much our tastes have changed, as far as eating healthy and entertaining goes. As I read the book over and over, I can hear Julia Child talking to me. I grew up watching her cooking shows on PBS.
