Beautiful large full page, and two-page, colorful photographs of dishes, restaurants and locations. "A New Kind of Cook Book. It pays a lot of attention to the look of food, as well as to the preparation of it. The color, texture and shape of food have always attracted great artists... Now, in this book, the subject of food is treated by some of the greatest photographers of this day. ... It is designed in part for armchair gourmets who, far from the kitchen, may want to tempt themselves with culinary delights. But it is also designed for practicing cooks who, equally tempted, may want to try out some of its 600 recipes on the stove. To make this book has taken seven years of picture taking, cooking, sampling and testing. Photographers have had to travel all over the U. S. And much of Europe.
