In her most creative and instructive cookbook, Julia Child distills a lifetime of cooking into 800 recipes emphasizing lightness, freshness, and simplicity. Chapters are structured around master recipes, followed by innumerable variations that are easily made once the basics are understood. For example, make Julia's simple but impeccably prepared sauté of chicken, and before long you're easily whipping up Chicken with Mushrooms and Cream, Chicken Provençale, Chicken Pipérade, or Chicken Marengo. Or master her perfect broiled butterflied chicken, and you'll soon be including Deviled Rabbit or Split Cornish Game Hens Broiled with Cheese on your menu. Here home cooks will find a treasure trove of poultry and fish recipes, as well as a vast array of fresh vegetables prepared in new ways, along with bread doughs and delicious indulgences, such as Caramel Apple Mountain or a Queen of Sheba Chocolate Almond Cake with Chocolate Leaves. And if you want to know how a finished dish should look or how to angle your knife or to fashion a pretty rosette on a cake, there are more than 600 color photographs to entice and instruct you along the way. A brilliant, inspiring, one-of-a-kind, book from the incomparable Julia Child, The Way to Cook is a testament to the satisfactions of good home cooking.… (more)

An outstanding cookbook that covers Julia Child's interpretations of French cuisine. It includes master recipes that are staples of the genre. ( )
  velvetpaws | Dec 30, 2015 |
Great cookbook for French cuisine. It includes recipes for dishes that Julia Child considers "master recipes" which are dishes she considers standards. Not for the person who wants quick and easy recipes, although if you've spent time in a kitchen, nothing in here should scare you off. ( )

This was my first cookbook, and still my favorite. Julia Child taught me everything I needed to know about cooking. I cooked my first Thanksgiving straight out of this book, and had a great time learning how to do it right. ( )
