half-price inspiration. and fun...

The book is there for inspiration and as a foundation,
the fundamentals on which to build.
Food should be fun.
~ Thomas Keller

I have wanted this book for ages and ages, since 2000 to be exact...!
But I just could not find it in my budget for many reasons.

Today I was so fortunate to find this books at the the Half-Price Bookstore

Not only are the books half-price, but I can exchange my books, magazines, CDs and DVDs for credits, so this exquisite $50.00+ book that was in perfect condition and with the credits I recieved, became well within my tiny, tiny book budget.
But no matter,
I am jubilant to have this big beautiful book filled with amazing images and culinary inspiration at such a tiny price...
woo-hoo...! ! !

I intend to try to cook some of the recipes in this wonderful book from a Chef that I have much admired for ages and feature them on this blog…definitely not all the recipes.

For that you have to go to the wonderful blog French Laundry at Home

Oh, I love that photo and your glasses with those wonderful shadows, too. Sounds like a great book--I'll drool over whatever you post about it, I'm sure! LOL. Oh--incidentally, Joe tells me a package arrived for me, so I will anxiously look forward to digging into it on my next return home! Thank you so much, Terrie!! ;)) It will be a wonderful welcome home. Can't wait!
