Mastering the Art of French Cooking
Today I am very happy... my sweet oldest sister was in a second-hand shop, browsing through stacks of books when she came across Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Not just the original, but also the 2nd volume! She promptly bought the books and came home and surprised me with them. To say the least, I am thrilled!
Although I have no plans at present to attempt every recipe in those wonderful volumes (priceless treasures to me!), I am excited to have them as part of my growing cookbook collection. In order to use some of the recipes, I'll have to find a substitute for wine... any ideas?
Anyway, I am very excited and grateful to Susanna for thinking of me!
