PW’s Best Books of 2006 – Part IV
Among the books that PW has chosen as the best of 2006 are three cookbooks. Well, Julia’s book isn’t exactly a cookbook, but close enough.
Joy of Cooking: 75th Anniversary Edition, by Irma S Rombauer, Marion Rombauer Becker, and Ethan Becker “The new narrative and compilation of Joy is one of, well, joy.” No kitchen should be without Joy.
My Life in France, by Julia Child and Alex Prud’homme. “This is a valuable record of gorgeous meals in bygone Parisian restaurants and the secret arts of a culinary genius.” I haven’t read this, but Sarah has and she raves.
The Bon Appetit Cookbook, by Barbara Fairchild. “Mirroring the magazine on which it is based, this collection of 1,200 accessible recipes is a pure pleasure.”
