Please recommend a newly published cookbood for my friend who has a large collection
I would like to get my friend a cookbook for her birthday.
My friend owns a lot of cookbooks, so she could likely have anything that is not new.
She is a very accomplished cook and entertains a lot.
Her palate is mostly American with some French influence. She likes to use butter and cream :<), likes Julia Child, is not a huge dessert lover, cooks a lot of beef, not terribly fond of fish, likes to serve more courses than some.
I think Asian and Indian are not her favorits.
I would appreciate your help! Thanks.
Not really a cookbook per se..but a gastronomic encyclopedia with recipes. "Larousse Gastronomique" is the title. I received this wonderful reference book this Christmas from my son's girlfriend..she made MAJOR brownie points--I've been just reading it most every night. It is a great gift!
Many thanks to each of you.
I look forward to researching your good suggestions when I have some leisure minutes, herby and chefjune.
I had to make an immediate decision in order to get something delivered by Saturday, so looked at Susan Goins books.
Although I asked for a "newly" published cookbook, I thought the Sunday Suppers might be the best. Crossed my fingers and ordered it. I think it will be well received and I thank you for the suggestion, candy.
BTW, how do you pronounce "lucques?" Could not find a good answer.
Thanks to all!
Have a look at the 'Top Ten' list assembled by Eat Your Books from many lists around the world. There are 'best' overall and by various categories.
Personally I do not have a favourite book this year. From the recent ones I love Jerusalem by Ottoleghi.
Let us know what you choose.
