Urbain Dubois & Emile Bernard - La Cuisine Classique - 1879

Superb works with a remarkable menu section at the beginning of the first volume. A sprawling tribute to haute cuisine with Dubois' usual international flair.

Urbain Dubois is a French chef best known for his books, which have become classics of the culinary arts.

He was the precursor of the service called "Russian", that is to say a service directly on the plate served to each guest, as opposed to "French" where the dishes were all placed on the table. and each guest helps himself as he sees fit and in the order he wishes!
