Here is a hard to find COMB BOUND soft cover copy of the classic MUST HAVE cookbook titled... The Joy of Cooking: Comb-Bound Edition by Irma S. Rombauer. This copy isn't dated but most copies that have a comb spine were from the mid 1980's.
This cookbook is in lightly used good condition with just a little wear to the covers from use and re-shelving. The covers are white construction paper with a laminated covering. INSIDE, the pages are at least 98% free of any marks, stains or writing. The book measures 8 inches wide by 11 inches tall with a whopping 849 pages including index - about 2 1/2 inches thick!!
In this updated version, all the classic terms you'll find on menus, such as Provencale, bonne femme, meuniere, and Florentine are not merely defined but fully explained so that you can easily concoct the dish in your own home. The whys and the wherefores of the directions are given throughout the book, helping you create recipes you never thought possible.
Learn exactly what the results of simmering, blanching, roasting, and braising have on your efforts. An enlarged discussion on herbs, spices, and seasonings tells you the suitable amount necessary in recipes. With more than 1,000 practical, delightful drawings by Ginnie Hoffman and Ikki Matsumoto, you can learn how to present food correctly and charmingly from the simplest to the most formal service, how to prepare ingredients with classic tools and techniques, and how to safely preserve the results of your canning and freezing.
