Perhaps something was lost in the 'translation'; but it was nice to be able to trade Vat 69 for Vecchia Romagna Etichetta Nera.

I received my first cookbook when I was six from my favourite aunt and promptly made chocolate chip cookies. It was a Betty Crocker book.

I have a copy of that book. I use it occasionally. I prefer Fannie Farmer, though. But usually reach for The Joy Of Cooking first when looking for traditional recipes like that.

We use Fannie Farmers book often but find that things like rendering goose fat are not discussed in many of the more recent cook books.
