really liked it

This book has quite a notorious (and undeserved as such) reputation. It is in reality a lovely, informative and entertaining book about what eating and cooking in France, in one's own home, friends homes, great homes and also restaurants grand and humble, during the first half of the 20th century was like. Toklas takes us through the end of WWII, documenting the shortages and occupation by the Germans.

And TONS of recipes, which are rather dated, but most you'll want to try, especially the desserts and roasted chickens.

Loved this book.
