“An essential tool for more advanced cooks”

Written on: 03/10/2012 by reviewkitten (295 reviews written)

I have been cooking since a child and have relied upon the knowledge I gained from my family, school and recipe books. Last Christmas I was given Larousse Gastronomique as a gift. It is a very heavy book with lots of information about techiques, food products and the history of dishes making it a great tool to consult when I am attempting something new like French pastry making.

Like my other well loved source book (my battered old Dairy Diary from 1996) this has been a great help in understaning different cuts of meats as well as just being an interesting read.

I doubt I will ever read everything as it is so vast but for people that wish to develope their skills it's worth getting hold of a copy.
