However, I recently purchased this new edition as a gift. The recipient is happy, but I'm a bit disapointed. Though the new scheme makes distinguishing recipies a snap (red titles), the typeface is steril and the number and interest of photographs has declined substantially, largely consisting of full-page stock photo stuff.
Nevertheless, a great book, but one that has lost some of its beauty. I'm happy to own the 1988 edition!
I personally may not be so prominent in the kitchen, but I have a fascination for table etiquette ... and there is a wonderful section which goes into great lengths on how a table should be set, pending on the event
There are oodles of 'cooking bibles' out there, some of which are very worthy classics ... but I do believe this one ... takes the cake!
ps before purchasing, I asked my french sister in law her opinion on this book. I was expecting the typical french 'pff waste of time' return comment, but she also highly recommeneded it.
