Q:Geez, I'd much rather have a book with tons of pictures - they play a great deal when I'm deciding what to cook. Hmm, I don't know any good cooking book. And we have the internet nowadays, so... it's much easier to find something (:
I guess to be fair it was written at an earlier time, and it did have some illustrations to go with the instructions.
I’m not much for confit or sous-vide, so to me the Julia Child cookbook is more of an “Ah, that’s interesting to know,” type of read. It was a personal gift, along with some recipe cards, so I’ll always cherish it.
My other collection of cookbooks have a little more visual asset to them;
Those and a few Pinterest boards are pretty much my go-to for food inspirations.
And before anyone asks anything, I’m not on the Dukan diet. I tried it for a couple of days before realizing that I’d [personally] be “batshit cray” to exclude carbs for that long of a duration in my lifetime.
(and this is way too long for an answer).
