4.0 out of 5 stars dictionary of food, 23 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Larousse Gastronomique (Hardcover)
At first glance when I opened the "very large" book I was slightly disappointed that it was written in dictionary format - but after 2 mins I couldn't put the book down!
It has almost every recipe and basic methodologies for all those recipes and techniques that you hear about but don't quite understand. It has a wealth of info and you just need the time to sit down and pour through it.
The paper sheets are a bit on the thin side - so once you find the recipe that you are looking for it does mean that you have to write it up - as the book also is not something that you can easily prop up on your worktops whilst you work!
Overall a brilliant reference book for those that are really hooked into trying to cook like the experts.
