With the original edition out of print, this new eBook edition of La Varenne Pratique makes the timeless classic more accessible, more affordable and easier to use. The digital reproduction of the original was created by scanning each and every one of its 500-plus pages. Sliced and diced into four separate Parts, every chapter offers details on ingredients, storage, cooking techniques and recipes. Each Part includes a glossary of cooking terms, cooking equipment and a bibliography. Readers can purchase only the Part or Parts of greatest interest to them, or all of them. Each Part is completely searchable, its images can be enlarged or viewed independently and formatting can be adapted (to the extent allowed by the user’s e-reader).
Part 1: The Basics covers Herbs & Seasonings, Soups, Stocks and Sauces as well as Milk, Eggs and Cheese; Part 2: Meat, Poultry & Fish includes Game; Part 3: Vegetables, Pasta & Grains includes Mushrooms and Legumes; and Part 4: Baking, Preserving & Desserts also covers Fruit & Nuts and Freezing. The print edition’s groundbreaking photography has been digitized and continues to illustrate each topic with detailed images of food groups and step-by-step instruction on basic to advanced cooking techniques.
