BLURB/FLYLEAF: This is an updated and far more complete The Cook's Companion, Frieda Arkin's first and highly successful book on food and cooking lore. It provides the equivalent of years of trial and error in the kitchen - at a considerable saving of time, money, and anguish. The author, descendant from a family of chefs, has organized her know-how according to kinds of food, methods, and utensils. The book contains an enormous amount of surprising and practical information - canny hints, lucky discoveries, rich advice - and is a reference work that is both fun to read and convenient to use, for either new or experienced cooks.
CONDITION BOOK: Tight & square binding, clean & bright pages; some age-toning to outer page edges; some bumping to page corners.
