Description

Since its first publication in 1938, Larousse Gastronomique has been an unparalleled resource for cooks of all levels. In one volume it presents the history of foods, eating, and restaurants, as well as cooking terms, techniques from elementary to advanced, a review of basic ingredients with advice on recognizing, buying, storing, and using them, biographies of important culinary figures and recommendations for cooking nearly everything.

The new edition, the first since 1988, expands the book’s scope from classic Continental cuisine to include the contemporary global table, appealing to a whole new audience of internationally conscious cooks.

The agrument ender
Though, a new version is out, this one is hands down a great buy. It is the end all for reference books. This encyclopedia is used to end all disputes and to teach culinary students across the world. I keep one very close to me where ever I go. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about food
