Why aren’t the recipes for this book available on ckbk?
We are building our collection of cookbooks all the time. This book is on our wish list, but it is not yet available on ckbk.
Books which are part of ckbk's collection show one of these two logos:
Author and Historian
Also Le livre de Conserves (1869) and Le livre de Pâtisserie (1873) by the same author. These works are each a bible unto themselves. Later editions often contain the same words but cheapened the printing. The original with the chromoliths was really the coffee-table book of the 19th century. Each of the three books was translated beautifully into English by Alphonse Gouffé, his brother.
Also called the cooking bible or gourmet bible. Wonderful lithographies, which Salvador Dali copied without credit!
