Here is a quote from the book: "What are gourmet foods? Exotic viands of far-off lands, touched with the mystery of strangeness? Ineffable delicacies, exciting to read about but beyond the capacities of the average homemaker or the facilities of her kitchen? We think that gourmet food is food with a flair. It is sometimes a familiar food in a striking new dress with a retinue of unusual flavors. Or a beloved favorite cast in a new role in the drama of the dinner menu. It is always perfectly prepared and its service testifies to the imagination and artistry of the hostess. And above all, it is food that creates a pleasure that is more than gustatory, that intrigues the palate and delights the eye at the same time that it satisfies the appetite. Gourmet foods announce the expert's touch, but they are not the exclusive property of professionals. Every homemaker, including the newest comer to the ranks, can start on the road to creative and dramatic cookery if she follows directions."
