Anyone have it? I'm wondering if this is a real "use it in the kitchen" kind of cookbook, or more of a "landmark in cuisine addition to the cookbook library that is best enjoyed on the couch with something nice to sip" kind of cookbook. Either way I'm thrilled to add it to my collection. :)

    Mine isn't used in the kitchen often but I do refer to it as a reference. It is great fun to sit down with and read.

      Yes I have the 'tome'. When I first got it years ago it intimidated me and I've rarely opened it since.
      But I do have this: see photo. It is one of my most used treasures. I bought it at a swap meet for two bucks.
