To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have an ebook copy of the 1969 edition of the Larousse Gastronomique, which is more than a bit outdated, so I figured it was time to invest in the real thing. I actually been eyed this new edition for a few weeks when I saw it in the shelves at a Waterstone's. £60 is a bit steep when you have no money. So I'm really glad I found it here on Amazon for a much more affordable price and brand new!
it's THE encyclopedia for food and cooking. Everything's here. A MUST for serious cooks and pros.
I bought this for my brother's birthday, he's quite a foodie and a lover of fine dining also likes to create his own dishes. He's quite difficult to please when it comes to finding the right gift for him, he'll often feign delight at some gift or other but this book was happily the exception! He was genuinely pleased with it as he was with his present the previous year Larousse cocktails. Seems Larousse is a clear winner!
