i did a search here, but no joy.

there are some 'free downloads' of Larousse Gastronomique, but on sites (so far) that are apparently spam-filled.
I can't see it on some major ebook sites..any ideas?
Oh, and I want it in epub of similar, not for kindle
Cheers all!

To clarify, I don't mind paying for it
(but not the 38 from ebookscom!)

I managed to pick up a hardback version from the Book People for 20. Takes up a lot more space than an E-book though!

I'll sell you mine, it's too francocentric.

thank you, though I suspect the postage would be roughly equivalent to the train fare :-)

I sort of want to get stuck into frenchness; contrary, logical (in their particular way!) and needlessly complex & prescriptive..it'd be interesting to contrast the 'complex', classical stuff with the simple...and the history. Foie gras is technically offal, after all :-)

Have you actually browsed a copy? It's more reference than recipe. You can look up a french cheese and see where it's made. You can look up pheasant and see some named dishes.

If you want a classic french cooking course then Elizabeth David's book is de rigueur (if you'll pardon the pun).
