“The Way To Cook” cookbook subtitled “She Takes You Into Her Kitchen And Tells You- And Shows You- Everything She Knows About The Essentials of Good Cooking Today” by Julia Child. A Borzoi Book published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1989, this is an eighth printing from November 1990, so stated. The book is a hard cover with a dust jacket measuring 9¼ x 11 inches with 512 pages, the price of $50.00 is printed on the interior flap of the dust jacket; this is a jam-packed heavy book, it weighs almost six pounds! It is in very excellent gently used condition, it pretty much looks new except the dust jacket shows some wear.
In her most creative and instructive cookbook, Julia Child distills a lifetime of cooking into 800 recipes emphasizing lightness, freshness, and simplicity. Chapters are structured around master recipes, followed by innumerable variations that are easily made once the basics are understood. For example, make Julia’s simple but impeccably prepared sauté of chicken, and before long you’re easily whipping up Chicken with Mushrooms and Cream, Chicken Provençale, Chicken Pipérade, or Chicken Marengo. Or master her perfect broiled butterflied chicken, and you’ll soon be including Deviled Rabbit or Split Cornish Game Hens Broiled with Cheese on your menu. Here home cooks will find a treasure trove of poultry and fish recipes, as well as a vast array of fresh vegetables prepared in new ways, along with bread doughs and delicious indulgences, such as Caramel Apple Mountain or a Queen of Sheba Chocolate Almond Cake with Chocolate Leaves. And if you want to know how a finished dish should look or how to angle your knife or to fashion a pretty rosette on a cake, there are more than 600 color photographs to entice and instruct you along the way. A brilliant, inspiring, one-of-a-kind, book from the incomparable Julia Child, The Way to Cook is a testament to the satisfactions of good home cooking.
