I Know How To Cook

I really want to share with you one of the gifts I received for Christmas (thanks Dad!). It’s a wonderful French cookbook titled, I Know How To Cook. It’s been wonderfully redesigned by Phaidon and is the most aesthetically wonderful cookbook ever!! I took some photos of my favorite pages to show you this book’s wonders. When I received the book, the weight totally threw me off. It’s freaking heavy! I thought it would be about 1/4 the size, but nope! It’s huge! Full of delicious awesomeness. I can’t wait to start cooking!

I’ve never been a huge fan of book jackets, this one had a terribly tacky sticker on top issued by Phaidon. I realized that the book jacket could come off and was surprised to see that it turns into a poster (seen on last photo). How cute! Definitely an added bonus!
