Previous reviewer rather unfair...

This is the first Julia Child book I have bought - and I acquired it because I understood it to be about basic techniques with plenty of helpful tips - based as it is on her own accumulated file of notes to herself. At this level, I think it is more than adequate and really quite helpful. So - a basic technique e.g. roasting is described in detail and then the elaboration of variations for different cuts, meats etc. And excellent index - one of the best I have seen in a cookery book - helps you to make maximum use of the contents. Not a "must have", perhaps, but certainly one to keep and use.
