Includes more than 5,000 recipes in narrative form for everything from sauces, soups, garnishes, and hors d'oeuvres to fish, meats, poultry, and desserts Ideal for professional chefs, culinary students, serious home cooks, food history buffs, and unrepentant foodies The only unabridged English translation of Escoffier's original text, in a sleek, modern design For anyone who is serious about French food, modern cooking, or culinary history, Escoffier's Complete Guide to the Art of Modern Cookery is the ultimate guide and cookbook.
