Larousse Gastronomique, the world's classic culinary reference book, is known worldwide for its authoritative and comprehensive collection of recipes. Originally created by Prosper Montagne and published in 1938, this essential addition to any kitchen has withstood the test of time and become an invaluable source of information for every enthusiastic cook and serious gastronome alike.Without the exaggeration and extravagant distractions of many of today's cookery titles, New Concise Larousse Gastronomique contains recipes, tips, cooking styles and origins for almost every dish in history. 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.

Our 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 more
