Developments in appliances, nutrition and culinary knowledge are all included.Packed with fascinating and tips, this concise edition remains faithful to Prosper Montagne's original ideal: that a culinary panorama of the present day and a history of gastronomy could be created as a single work of reference.show more

Customer reviews

I enjoy this book so much I just got another one for my sister's birthday. The quality and quantity of it's content can not be praised enough. This and the Joy of Cooking (another cooking bible!) are the only two cookbooks I own and I don't see the need for another any time soon.show more
