Apples For Jam

Apples For Jam

Cooking is not one of my most favourite hobbies but this book does make it easier. Tessa's recipes are delightfully entangled with memories of the energy and excitement of her own childhood and hopes for her daughters. These are recipes that have been passed from friend to friend, through the generations of many families and swapped over garden fences. This joyful and eclectic collection is put together with the grace and honesty of a daisy chain. 400 pages, oozing glorious colour and excitement with evocative text and innovative recipes are complemented by beautiful photographs and illustrations.

As big as a coffee tabletop itself, my copy of the Bouchon cookbook by Thomas Keller never makes its way to my kitchen, but the book is stunning. I love sitting on my couch on a lazy Sunday afternoon flipping through its pages and just dreaming of how delicious the food is. One day, I may actually attempt something in the book, but I just don't want to mess up the beautiful pages in the kitchen.

Well, other than Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Larousse Gastronomique is not precisely a cookbook but an encylopedia, a catalog of culinary terms, techniques and recipes. First published in France in 1938, the book was edited by Prosper Montagné, contained a preface by Georges Auguste Escoffier, and numbered 1087 pages. Larousse was translated into English in 1961, and in 2001 an updated version, expanded a few hundred pages to include more cuisines and photographs and overseen by culinary luminary Joël Robuchon. The book covers a lot of ground, from abaisse (a sheet of pastry) to zuppa inglese (a 19th century Neapolitan dessert), weighs a hefty 8 pounds (useful to weight terrines), and packs in a surprising amount of recipes. It's an awesome book, pleasurably daunting in its scope, and you can see why Child revered it. "If I were allowed only one reference book in my library," she wrote, "Larousse Gastronomique would be it, without question."
