Description: "The king of chefs and the chef of kings," Auguste Escoffier was, without doubt, the greatest cook of the last hundred years, some would say of all time. He was certainly the most celebrated.
In Ma Cuisine, the only one of his many works written with the average housewife in mind, the essence of haute cuisine can be found: French cooking at its best, great yet simple.
Reflecting a lifetime of skill and experience, here is an invaluable collection of recipes covering soups and sauces; fish and shellfish; meat and poultry; game; salads and vegetables; sweets, jams and beverages. Such gastronomic delights as frogs' legs and snails, perhaps the most famous French dishes, are also included. Since many ingredients are unavailable outside France, alternates are suggested so that readers all across the world can enjoy the best French cooking.
Ma Cuisine is a treasury of food at its most superb, a book of value to professional and amateur cook alike. Edited by cookery expert Marion Howells, the translation is by author and epicure Vyvyan Holland, with a foreword by Andre Simon, late president of the Wine and Food Society.
