    Anyone have opinions on this book? Edward R. Hamilton has it for sale for a ridiculously low price and I generally love Peterson but I've never seen this particular title.

    The also have Madeleine Kamman's When French Women Cook on sale for a song. I've heard good things about this one but reading the index on Amazon has intimidated me a bit. Maybe because rabbit and duck are not so easily come by here.

    Comments?

    I have Glorious French Food. It's a great book. Lots of info, pictures and recipes. He always has good insight into why and how things are done. If you can get it at a  good price, it should be a good addition to your collection.

    Thanks, Chefwriter. 

    I thought it would be a worthwhile addition, even though the last thing I have room for is another cookbook.
