This is the classic cookbook, in its entirety - all 524 recipes. Mastering the Art of French Cooking is for both seasoned cooks and beginners who love good food and long to reproduce at home the savory delights of the classic cuisine, from the historic Gallic masterpieces to the seemingly artless perfection of a dish of spring-green peas. This beautiful book, with more than 100 instructive illustrations, leads the cook from the buying and handling of raw ingredients, through each essential step of a recipe, to the final creation of a delicate confection. The focus is on key recipes that form the backbone of French cookery and lend themselves to an infinite number of elaborations, bound to increase anyone's culinary repertoire. The techniques learned here can be applied to recipes in all other French cookbooks, making them infinitely more usable.

I enjoyed this book very much. The instructions and teaching that this book gives are excellent. With that said, it is not my favorite cookbook: the recipes are somewhat complicated. I highly recommend this book for the serious chef ( or the not so serious chef who wants to learn more about gourmet cooking)
