Auguste Escoffier: Le Guide Culinaire, Revised

New, revised version of Escoffier’s premier work, unabridged fourth edition from 1921. In English, glory be.

Translated from the 1921 Fourth Edition, this revision includes all-new Forewords by Heston Blumenthal, chef-owner of the Michelin three-star-rated Fat Duck restaurant, and Chef Tim Ryan, President of The Culinary Institute of America, along with Escoffier’s original Forewords, a memoir of the great chef by his grandson Pierre, and more than 5,000 narrative recipes for all the staples of French cuisine.

Now that’s enough to break out the checkbook for, don’t you think?
