5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, should be on every shelf, June 27, 2008
By 
This review is from: Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Vol. 2: A Classic Continued: A New Repertory of Dishes and Techniques Carries Us into New Areas (Paperback)
Everyone should know this is a must have cookbook. It teaches the novice the basics and explains everything clearly. Just the information regarding the sauces is worth the purchase. Timeless information that will allow anyone to set a good table.

I just purchased this for our eldest daughter who is to be married but never developed any skill in the kitchen. She will now have to sink or swim in her own kitchen. This classic teaching book will serve her well and I am not worried about her success.

You should be instructing your daughter in your own kitchen at every opportunity. She will never learn more from a book than she does from a parent who takes time to instruct her.

I learnt to cook entirely from books. As a result I am a far better cook than my mother. I think you should mind your own business.

Bravo Getoka. I am almost 60 and had to learn from books, since my mom never cooked. My daughter, who is a better cook than me, learned in her own kitchen using my books.
Now I'm going to learn from Julia!
