Why we love this
The Home Book of French Cookery, by Mme. Germaine Carter. London: Faber and Faber, 1952. Second printing. A charmingly old-fashioned collection of the best of French recipes, aimed at the British population, just beginning to stir themselves out of the shortages of the war years and discover the pleasures of the world outside. 288 pages, with a classic '50s jacket.
