Shelves: owned, nonfiction
Probably better as an on-hand reference guide than as a read cover to cover type. But very thourough, good layout, witty jokes. Despite literally being my age it hasn't aged much and isn't too dated, but it also assumes that the reader has a lot more time, money, and storage space than I think is necessary for good cooking, but that's just my opinion ...more

One of the most food-soiled books in my kitchen. ...more
