If you have one (including Good Things) please could you comment in of quality of recipes.
Also, the Alice B Toklas Cookbook.
I can’t work out if these are recipe books or general articles about regions and cooking/ingredients used - I’m looking for something practical :-)
A Book of Mediterranean Food
French Country Cooking
French Provincial Cooking
They all have recipes which generally turn out well (Provincial cooking being my favourite) and they all have interesting background information. I thought FS also published An Omelette and a Glass of Wine but I can't see it on my shelf so I must be mistaken.
They did, indeed. I can definitely see it on my shelf, right next to all her others.
Later, oh no, I put it on a bookcrossing ring and it was mailed from Hawaii to Tehran in 2005, never got there...
Now I shall have to get the FS edition; fortunately it seems to be in stock.
I would imagine so. It was only published in 2016. Enjoy it with an omelette and the all-important glass of wine :)
You represent The Society for Putting Things on Top of Other Things and I claim my five pounds ;-)
I'm from Texas where we put turtles on top of fence posts.
Well, I've heard it said that 'it's turtles all the way down'.
Do the turtles like it up there?
I will look around for the Toklas :-)
The recipes are good, too!
