If I ate meat, this book would surely get four stars. If it incorporated ethnic or non-European ingredients to any degree, it would even get five! The master recipes and their variations are concise and Julia's entertaining and opinionated writing shines. But no tortillas or salsa, no soy sauce, no couscous or hot peppers or tofu or ginger...even most of the cheese called for is Swiss! The book is a wonderful resource for European-based American food, but in this American century, I don't think this can quite be considered "the way to cook." I can't decide if I would want to own it or not.
