Read an Excerpt

• Among the innumerable books on cookery, a few are directed to the experts and the greatest number to the nonprofessional. As a source of reference, Le Repertoire de La Cuisine, is precious to both. For serious students of cookery, it's a handy guide that is extremely complete, reliable, and easy to understand.— Jaques Pepin, Le Repertoire de La Cuisine

• A priest in Nigeria will have very little in common with another priest from Guam, except their common faith in God and in the Bible. I venture to say the Repertoire has been and will continue to be the common bible for the cognoscenti of cooking. — George Lang, Le Repertoire de La Cuisine

Yes the book is treasured, but not really as a source for recipes- there are few. The book is primarily a chef's reminder, assuming the chef has knowledge and skill that just needs a few hints to refresh them. I worked for 12 years in a kitchen that kept this as the definitive source to resolve all questions. Unfortunately it was in French. I've since picked up a translation that looks identical, but there's no way of telling whether this volume is French or English. Once I had both versions, I checked a few of the recipes - mostly for baked goods and sweets- and the translations were good, but the measurements weren't converted. In several, liter was translated as quart with no altering of the number or adjusting other proportions. They were translated but not converted, I guess I'm trying to say. If we needed to check Pate chou, we'd get the recipe from the French version.
