FURTHER MARKDOWN SALE 1966/1978 GOOD FRENCH COOKING MAPIE HARDBACK COOKBOOK! I have not had this cook book before, but I know from having one by Julia Child and other writers, that French cooking is a favorite with many. This one was originally copyrighted in 1964, printed in 1966, and this is the 1978 edition. It is a hardback book and still retains its dust jacket, so it is in excellent condition.
Quoted from the jacket: "Renowned as a superlative exponent of the art of French cooking, 'Mapie' was the cookery editor of ELLE Magazine. She wrote on food for REALITES too, and was the director of the famous cooking school of Maxim's in Paris. Her special genius lay in her ability to adapt the methods of classic French cookery to the practical needs of the twentieth century...Mapie, Comtesse Guy de Toulouse-Lautrec, was a woman who was born into the great tradition of French haute cuisine where no expense was spared on food or wine, and where many servants were available to ease the burden of preparation and service. After the war she was quick to realise that such halcyon days were gone forever and that if the traditional excellence of French cooking was to survive, it must change with the times. She devised, with this in mind, new recipes which are the essence of simplicity and yet French to the core...GOOD FRENCH COOKING has been written especially for the English-speaking reader. It is a superb cookery book containing 1,500 remarkably clear and easy to follow recipes.
There are individual chapters on sauces, soups, entrees, eggs, fish, meat, poultry and game, potatoes, rice and pasta, vegetables, salads, desserts, pastry and wine. Each is filled with ideas to add elegance to any occasion, from a dinner party to the most informal meal."
This great cookbook was printed in Czechoslovakia. You won't be disappointed with the contents or the condition.
