Possibly the ultimate hardcore food porn: nearly 240 pages of dish after dish described in the sparest of prose, eg:

(Sole) Montgolfier.- Poached and coated with white wine sauce mixed with julienne of mushrooms, carrots and truffles. Fleurons.

or

(Pommes de terre) Chamonix.- Dauphin Potatoes with cheese

With no recipes, just thousands and thousands of descriptions like these, this is really not your average cookbook, but I find it absolutely invaluable.
