it was amazing
bookshelves: cooking

This is the book that taught me how to cook. Not only does it contain some really excellent recipes, it also gives detailed instructions for fundamental cooking techniques. Some of the recipes are rather involved, but Julia provides everything you'll need to work your way up to them.

Due to the complexity of some of the recipes and the generally high butter and cream content, I would not use this book for every day cooking. I reserve it for learning new techniques and for special occasions.
