In this magnificent cookbook, illustrated with full color throughout, Julia Child gives us her magnum opus, the distillation of a lifetime of cooking. And she has an important message for Americans today. . . to the health-conscious: make a habit of good home cooking so that you know you are working with the best and freshest ingredients and you can be in control of what goes into every dish. To the new generation of cooks who have not grown up in the old traditions: learn the basics and understand what you are doing so cooking can be easier, faster, and more enjoyable. To the more experienced cook: have fun improvising and creating your own versions of traditional dishes, and to all of us: above all, enjoy the pleasures of the table. In all, there are more than 800 recipes, including the variations from a treasure trove of poultry and fish recipes and a vast array of fresh vegetables prepared in new ways, to bread doughs (that can be turned into pizzas and calzones and hamburger buns) and delicious indulgences, such as Caramel Apple Mountain or a Queen of Sheba Chocolate Almond Cake with Chocolate Leaves. And if you want to know how a finished dish should look or how to angle your knife or to fashion a pretty rosette on that cake, there are more than 600 color photographs to entice and instruct you along the way. A one-of-a-kind, brilliant, and inspiring book from the incomparable Julia, which is bound to rekindle interest in the satisfactions of good home cooking.
