What a great book. That fact that she covers the "why" of things is so helpful. Given that her editor is Judith Jones (Julia Child's editor) I shouldn't be surprised.
It is a great book, as are her others. I have at least three of her books, mostly purchased in the '70s and '80s, though I did get one just a few years ago, that I think was published in the '90s.
I got to meet her in the '80s at a book signing at Brentano's in Westwood Village. She was very gracious, gave a lovely talk and there were free recipe card sets with recipes that were going to be in her next book.
By the way, the box is "out for delivery" !!
