    The recipes EYB has indexed are from the companion spiral-bound Recipes booklet, some of which do not appear in the main hardcover book.

    It is so odd that recipes from chapters iii and IV are missing from the listing of recipes. My all time favorite for an hors’doeurve is the Tarte a la tomate on page 50

Publishers Text

Discusses the cuisine of the provinces of France and provides many traditional recipes from these regions.

Foods of the World was a popular series of 27 cookbooks published by Time-Life, beginning in 1968 and extending through the early 1970s, that provided a broad survey of many of the world's major cuisines. The individual volumes were written by well-known experts on the various cuisines and included significant contemporary food writers, including Craig Claiborne, Pierre Franey, James Beard, Julia Child, and M.F.K. Fisher, and was overseen by food writer Michael Field who died before the series was complete. The series combined recipes with food-themed travelogues in an attempt to show the cultural context from which each recipe sprang.

Each volume came in two parts -- the main book was a large-format, photograph-heavy hardcover book, while extra recipes were presented in a spiralbound booklet with cover artwork to complement the main book. The individual volumes remain collector's items and are widely available on the second hand market.
