a friend and fellow book, cooking, and eating enthusiast lent me her collection of Time Life cuisine literature. this was my favorite of the bunch. it's a slice in the life of culinary france in the late '60s. fascinating. the book was long on photographs and discussion of culinary culture, short on actual recipes. a wonderful collector's item but insufficient for a cook's reference.

My favorite of the Time Life series, mainly because the recipes that I successfully tried to duplicate from my first trip to France in 1972 were the recipes that I found in this particular book. Page 112 (Coquilles St Jacques a la Parisienne) and 193 (Tartes aux Fraises, except I substituted framboises) are stained and splattered testimony to my efforts.

I didn't think I could get into any of the Time-Life food series, but I just love this book (after finding it in a thrift store). It's a great primer on French food.

One of the Time-Life series. Unfortunately, Fisher did not do a good job with this book.
