This copy of 'Modern French Culinary Art' is the same edition that I bought, 48yrs ago, as a fifteen year old apprentice chef. So my reasons for buying it hold as much to my fond memories of my first discovering this gem as to any food preparatory advice. The advice given in the book is as relevent now as it was then though changes in style and modern techniques may have overtaken some of it. The new up-to-date version of this book is quite remarkble and should hold pride of place in any professional kitchen that aspires to the highest cookery practices. As for me the memories are still fresh as are the recipies. I wouldn't be without it. (I lent out my original copy to a friend and never got it back! Be warned!)

As a professional cook this book is up there with escoffiers guide culinaire & louis saulniers repertoire de la cuisine. A true guide to classic french cuisine with classic european national dishes also. designed for use by the home cook @ professional chef alike it is clear & easy to work from. The book is somewhat bulky so you will need a strong bookshelf!!. It contains many photographed classic techniques & some stunning colour plates contributed by top chefs working in grand hotels & restaurants. If your a budding chef with a thirst for knowledge then this book is an absolute must.

HASH(0x8f3fd4d4) out of 5 stars this is a great resource. I will say it is exactly what ... 27 Aug. 2014
By John Mabley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a comprehensive review of French cooking techniques and recipes. It seems to be designed for the serious home cook or as a reference for a professional. The style of the book and typeface confirm that this is an older cookbook when compared to current books, but for the person looking for a full review of French culinary art, this is a great resource. I will say it is exactly what I was looking for as a complete reference.

This is simply one of the textbook,if not the textbook,that culinary schools use to teach their students,that should speak for itself..Only one thing is changed presentation and garnishment have evolved.

This book is a must for people interested in the technical aspects of cooking. There aren't any shortcuts to these recipes. Very old-fashioned but an excellent research cookbook.
