      "I Know How to Cook" by Ginette Mathiot. The book is basically the Bible of home cooking in France, with over 1400 recipes and subsequently the gift one gives to anyone setting up a new home there apparantly. Called Je sais cuisiner in France, it was first published in 1932 and now has since been adpated in English by French food writer Clotilde Dusoulier.

    • Lori Fuller

      The great reputation of I Know How to Cook has been built over three generations by the fact that it is a genuine cookbook: each recipe has been cooked many times, and because it is used by domestic cooks rather than chefs. And with its breadth of recipes and knowledge of techniques, I Know How to Cook doesn't just teach you how to cook French, it teaches you how to cook, period.

      I Know How to Cook; Ginette Mathiot. I love love love this book. While I have only made one or two recipes from this book (or maybe zero), the illustrations by Blexbolex are not to be missed.
