Today's treasure: The Ultimate Cookbook!
If you've been following me over the years, you know that besides quilting, one of my passions is cooking. The Larousse Gastronomique by Prosper Montagne is the ultimate cookbook. Really, it's not so much a cookbook as a timeless encyclopedia of cooking over the centuries. It's truly fascinating, and I have spent hours wandering through it in the way you lose yourself in a dictionary or encyclopedia - you start looking for one thing, and that leads to another and another and another . . .
This is the 1961 Edition, English translation, with a romantically cryptic dedication inside the front cover:
"C. - M. Escoffier would have loved you - a true saucy wench. Richard"
