With an introduction written by Oscar of the Waldorf, one could hardly say this publication of notable reference was ever in question of becoming a standard in fine cuisine instruction. Oscar writes,” The perfection of the art of making culinary combinations is the production of a happy combination, in which the elementary flavors are all lost and indistinguishable in the new one created by their combined effect on the palate”. It is a beautiful reference full of gorgeous recipes. By fortune I found my copy at an estate sale in Houston, Texas.
