Mastering the Art of French Cooking
Volume One
Julia Child, Louisette Bertholle, Simone Beck

“Cooking is not a particularly difficult art, and the more you cook and learn about cooking, the more sense it makes. But like any art it requires practice and experience. The most important ingredient you can bring to it is love of cooking for its own sake” (viii).

I was originally going to use this cookbook for a craft project but after we moved it found a place on my bookshelf and loved the look of the spine with other old books. I think this book would be a lovely addition to a cookbook collection or for bookshelf decoration. It is a beautiful white/ivory color with cherry red title text box and would brighten a bookshelf.

The book is in fairly good condition. The pages have yellowed with age and there is some cooking evidence on the cover and spine (see photos).

Please let me know if you have any questions about condition or if you’d like to see more photos.

Thank you for shopping!

If you're confident it wasn't delivered, then I will have to submit a complaint to USPS and work on getting the insured amount back for both parties. These are one of a kind items and cannot be reproduced.
