This is not just another cookbook. It is a wonderful book to read, cook with, and indulge, beautifully photographed and very well researched and edited. The stories about these classic recipes reveal the history of great entrees and the people who enjoyed them. The recipes are well explained and easy to follow. Some are cleverly simple, i.e. Paillard of Tuna.

Format: Hardcover
This is much more than a good cookbook -- it's a sort of Proustian evocation of a bygone era. Far better than most exercises in nostalgia, this tells you exactly how to relive that delicious past, even if you happened to miss living it in the first place: the recipes are great, easy to follow, and they make this average cook feel, however briefly, like a distinguished chef. The photographs are gorgeous, the food looks so good it's hard not to put on a suit and tie and a flower in your lapel before sitting down to eat these feasts. Even if you hate to cook, this is a book you'll want to have on your coffee table, ready to browse and dream of a more elegant, well-lived life.

While I love to cook...even if I didn't cook but loved food I'd have to own this book! Each recipe comes with fascinating introductions as to the creator and history of each dish, the photography is gorgeous and actual technique is beautifully and clearly written. The minute the book came I immediately sat down and read it cover to cover. While I'm generally disapproving of coffee table cookbooks...because I'm more interested in "hands on" things that I can also create...this book is the best of both. I highly recommend it and know I'll have great fun replicating these classics. Gail Monaghan is definitely a star! If you concerned about the price be sure to look for a used version of this marvelous book...as while the cover price is $45.00 and sells for $40 on Amazon, if you want to check it out I managed to find a used copy in great condition for $2.53 plus $3.99 shipping.
