Larousse Gastronomique

Larousse Gastronomique is the most respected of all the food encyclopedias, written by Pierre Larousse[?] (1817-1875).

The French language original is heavily biased towards French culinary tradition, while the more recent English editions tend to be a little more tolerant of differing cuisines (e.g. Italian, Chinese).
