3/4/2019 – Books By Chef


Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.

Hey, all new things this week! I need the good juju for the website. Let’s review a question from last season:

LearnedLeague precedent (LL79, MD14) – Irma S. Rombauer, a hostess and homemaker from St. Louis, self-published in 1931 the first edition of an eventual bestseller that became one of the most popular reference books of its kind in the United States, and remains today a classic. What is that book’s title?

We’ve asked about Mrs. Rombauer before, and that book is the Joy of Cooking. And what a joy it is.

Today is a book-filled edition of 5CT. I’ll give the title of a cookbook by a famous chef, and you name the chef. Good luck!
