I bought this as a gift for my wife, after being inspired by the Julie and Julia movie. First of all, the Walmart price is the best...by quite a bit. I found this for well over $100 dollars elsewhere. Second, the recipes inside are easy to follow and make for fantastic meals! If you have a rookie cook in the house who wants to explore the cullinary arts, or if you have a master that just wants new recipes to try...this is a must have.
This collection is more than just some recipes thrown into a book. By reading through each section, one is given information that is not included in simpler cookbooks, where each cut of meat comes from, how best to cook it, and what to serve and drink with it. The book reflects a gracious time when dinner party's were not pot luck or buffet style but lavish sit down affairs. All that aside, read the reciepie and instructions over thoroughly, then follow them and the outcome will be absolutely yummy.
Great to have 2 volumes in a case and very reasonably priced. Bought it for my son who is in Culinary School and he was very pleased.
Wonderful guide for new and seasoned cooks.Buy one for a friend and share a great experience.
To not the so good cook and the excellent. This book has everything for a cook to wants to learn or just wants to make more.
I really really want this set.....volume 1 and 2, but I would gladly take the first volume. That's my goal is to buy the 1st volume atleast........
These books are probably responsible for starting the obsession with cooking shows. VERY well written and have LOTS of tips for even the most experienced cook.
