Joy of Cooking

The Joy of Cooking is a literary work, indeed it is. One of my favourites: "Whenever we see one of our contemporaries trying to regain her youthful allure with gaudy sartorial trappings, we think of a dish we found in a collection of college alumnae recipes, called: 'Supreme of Old Hen." Page 426, First Scribner Edition, 1995. Elsewhere (too bad these pithy sentences aren't listed in the index, the way ingredients are) she quotes a French chef as saying the french fry must be "surprised" by the oil. On some page I used to frequent regularly but now can't find, she refers to an ingredient or method as a "sturdy defensible", borrowing a grammarian's expression for a part of speech that is ov2xnot be entirely grammatically correct but for whose continued use a case can be made. O the joy of Joy Of Cooking!
