Classic culinary text, maybe of all time. Old school cooking though. Must have in the cooking library ( )

Reprint of the 1903 Guide originally published in 1903. Interesting "translation" issues where so many French cooking terms are used in English, or have no exact English word. For example, "poeling" means roasting with butter. [v]

Includes a Glossary of terms, an Index and two major sections: Fundamental Elements of Cook, and Recipes.
