les belles recettes

Vintage French cookbooks made for American audiences, including first editions of the Cordon Bleu & the Art of French Cooking Volume II. I love the illustrations & design of the charming Peter Pauper Press editions, so I threw in a non-Gallic example from my collection as well. Bon appetit!


  1. I love it! These books are amazing! Thank you for showing. I have no idea about them, and now thanks to you :-) I want to have them all in my books' collection, lucky you
    Have a great week

  2. Thank you, Tera & Kavka! They're excellent to cook from as well, especially Le Cordon Bleu & Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Simple, French country food is my favorite.


Thanks so much for stopping by - your comments make my day!
