Has anyone already seen or used this "new" (in English) translation/reworking of a French classic cookbook popular there since 1932? I love French food and would like to be able to cook in the French housewife style, not so much the elaborate chef-centered cuisine of Julia Child, however much I adore the woman. But it's huge, and expensive, and reviews on amazon are VERY mixed. I'd value what any brave chowhounds have made of it. If anything.
