Format: Hardcover
Escoffier is a classic, chances are you didn't stumble across this title on Amazon and deliberately searched for it as you've seen the book mentioned elsewhere (am I right?)......

Keep in mind you are buying a reference work. It is not an easy read, no glossy photographs of beautiful plates of classic French food and definitely no clearly photographed step by step plans for assembling your dish.

It does however deal very well with the basics (the sauces, stocks and demi-glazes) that are the core of some of the great dishes. It is a treasure trove of ideas for vegetable preparations (the section on Potato preparations has given me myriad ideas). The recipes themselves are short and basic and there is an assumption that you are familiar with basic skill sets.

If you are looking for another French Laundry cookbook (which references Escoffier's Lobster with Paprika by the way) then this isn't it.

If you are a serious home cook looking to expand both your skill sets and your repertoire then this is a very good purchase. In my home it sits next to Larousse Gastranomique and I turn to both looking for ideas and inspiration.

Happy Cooking.
