I see your Pierre Franey and raise you a "Baking in America" (Greg Patent) ordered by mistake and sadly, the last 20 pages were exposed to moisture so I could not return it. I only bake at gunpoint, so if anyone could use this, I would be happy to forward it.

I've found a home for my somewhat crumpled "Baking in America." Thanks to all for your interest and "pay it forward" everyone who benefits from this thread and has a title lying around that you haven't used for a while. One man's trash...

I'd love the pressure cooking book! It's gotten abruptly hot here (upper 90s all last weekend, gorgeous!), and since my apartment has no air conditioning I'm getting suddenly very well-acquainted with my new Kuhn Rikon. Sent you an email too. :)

I've got a copy of:

Craig Claiborne and Pierre Franey's "The Master Cooking Course"

hardcover in excellent condition, but a small tear in the dustjacket at the top front. The book is a step by step guide to the preparation of 4 different meals. Any one with an eye for this one?

      I'm thinking about starting a blog featuring the recipes of antoine Carême that I've translated from 1700s French? No English versions of his works exist and his work is hard to find, even though he is the greatest chef who ever lived. After I get through his works I'd add menon, la Varenne, and other hard to find, but historically important masters of French cuisine.

      I dont believe that any English translation of Carêmes works exist. An incomplete version was published in 1842 (I think) but even the that version seems lackluster for the few recipes it does cover. I think it's time the world looks to its past, but I don't speak great French and it's a huge task to undertake. I hopefully plan on publishing this work and anyone who helps me will get a very fair cut, and if we decide not to publish it, I'll put it out on the internet for free. I'm working in Google docs so we can collaborate. I'm first cataloging the index to cross reference the pre-existing incomplete English version to give us a reference of what yet needs to be done, and from there we will go down the list of recipies and Translate them one by one. Simple google translate goes only so far, as it is 1700s French culinary terms and phrases being used. I'd like to preserve as much of Carêmes beautiful and flowery language as possible. Who's with me?

      I have seen referenced in several places on the internet, including Wikipedia, a stat about escoffier recommending 40 minutes for scrambled eggs in a Bain Marie. I cant find where this number is from. On Wikipedia it refers to the book I currently own, the "Escoffier le guide culinaire" with forward by Heston Blumenthal by h. L. Cracknell...specificly page 157 for the 40 minute cooking time of scrambled eggs but it's not in my book on that page! Even tho there is the recipe for scrambled eggs on that page... I've seen the 1903 first edition online.. And it's not in there either.... Where is this number from?? Id like to know in case there is some even more complete book or something out there that I'm missing. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

      I have no idea why they blurred the name..
      so i really would love to know the name of this cookbook.
      Has anyone seen it?
      (I think it’s in French.)
       
      Thanks!

      I have Volumes 1 ,2 and 4 of Jean-Pierre Wybauw's Great Chocolate books are for sale.
       
      The books are in great shape!  There is some tape on the corner of the front of volume 1 that I used to keep it together after a drop.  Volume 1 is also autographed by the author (See pics below).
       
      I'm asking $150 for the lot OBO.
       
      Let me know if interested or if you have questions
