Cher Jloie:
I found mine. You and your brother take care not so set fire to Poland. Send pictures anyway.


Used book sales at the library can be a good place to look for cookbooks. Sure there are piles of Sunset BBQ books and Betty Crocker Microwave Primers, But sometimes you can strike pure gold. Last Saturday I found the Holy Grail of food nerd cookbooks, Larousse Gastronomique.

It's a 1961, first American edition, (book club edition). Five bucks. Sure I could have bought one on Ebay or purchased a new one at the bookstore, but where's the sport in that?
