SIGNED by Francois Pope. Two masters of French cooking before Julia Child. Full of successful recipes covering most cooking areas.
The Chicago Trib has spoken in praise:
We love Julia Child—her wit, her joie de vivre, her chocolate mousse—and enjoy all the stories and hoopla over the movie, “Julie & Julia.” But we admit that Antoinette and Francois Pope hold a special place in our culinary hearts. Pope-cook They taught generations of Chicagoans how to cook at their schools that began in 1930—a 1938 ad in the Chicago Tribune for “Antoinette Pope’s Schools of Fancy Cookery” offered lessons for $1—and through their cookbooks, the first of which appeared in 1948.
Not to mention that the Popes had a television cooking show, “Creative Cookery” that ran from 1951 to 1963, over a decade before Julia Child’s program.
