TITLE: THE WORLD'S 100 BEST RECIPES
AUTHOR: Roland Goock
PUBLISHER, COPYRIGHT INFO: Culinary Arts Institute, 1973
DESCRIPTION: Oversize hardcover with dust jacket, 7.9" x 10.5", 100 pp.
BLURB/FLYLEAF: This best-selling cookbook has captured the imaginations of some of Europe's finest cooks, and here, in its first English-language edition, you will discover why. Not only does it present 100 great recipes from all over the world, it also dazzles the eye with 100 of the world's most exciting color photographs of these famous dishes.
Most recipes appear on a two-page spread, three-fourths of which is devoted to a full-color photograph of the dish being served at its tempting best. From A to Z - "Angels on Horseback" (England) to "Zuppa Pavese" (Italy) - you are in for a wonderful experience just turning these beautiful pages. This is only the beginning, however, for, as Aldous Huxley once said, "Reading the best cookbook cannot replace the simplest meal."
The culinary delights you discover here will become a lasting part of your repertoire of special and exciting foods. The recipes themselves are different. in addition to being completely informative about the preparation of the food, each one states the country of origin and gives some historical information as to how the dish originated, how it got its name, or how it gained popularity.
Perhaps the best thing about these 100 famous recipes is that all of them are relatively simple, and many of them are quite easy to prepare. This is no accident. One of the prime requisites for including a recipe in this collection of "bests" is that the user does not have to spend all day in the kitchen to prepare it. Gourmet dining need not demand kitchen slavery.
