Do any of you who have this book, have a copy where this ingredient is not left out or does anyone know how much you are supposed to use? I would love it if you could comment and let me know.
All the recipe includes is instructions for making a roux; then pouring in turkey stock; beating in egg cream mixture and hot sauce and then adding salt and pepper. What I would like to know is where is the WINE in this "wine sauce" recipe?
The problem is that it has a spartan feel to it, similar to the French Chef Cookbook. It has Julia's helpful hints and such all over the place, but there's a rushed feeling to the whole thing that takes away from the essential Julianess of the book. It is not the sort of cookbook that encourages you to get comfortable with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee -- it really is more suitable for someone who is watching a JC&Co rerun and just wants the recipes.
As a result, I'm not too sure who to recommend this to. It's a must-have for the Julia completist, but if the show reruns aren't on in your area it's at best an impulse purchase from a used bookstore. Good enough, but not one of her great works by a long shot.
I am disappointed with the book itself, it's condition, and well, I am just disappointed.

missing dust jacket, but it was used, and it looks good. It's going to be well used by me, too, and not sit on a shelf.Published on August 27, 2013 by j. duennes
