Try this. I posted an answer once and I don't see it so I'll try again. (Oh I know what I did wrong :o)
Anyway this one is a classic, with history too!

I've used that Time/Life book for 30+ years since my Berkeley days and it's truly great. I mean, have you ever read elsewhere that the measure of a true home cook way back then was how the person turned out a baked chicken!!!!!!!!!!

And how I miss Narsai's, Chez Panisse, Pig by the Tail, Lenny's Meat Market, Peet's and Cocolat.

Yes, as far as French Cooking goeth. But as to myself, I much prefer LA CUISINE by Raymond Oliver as well as The Escoffier Cookbook for the traditional French stuff. Both authors touts very rich recipies which I haven't seen elsewhere. I'll stick with Raymond and Escoffier, s'il vous plait, when it cometh to French Cuisine.

I have used "The German Cookbook" by Mimi Sheraton as my go-to referrence for over 30 years. While it is not specifically Austrian, many of the recipes--or variations thereof--can be found in Austria as well as Germany. This is your basic text, no photos, but clearly written directions and quite a bit of history for many of the recipes. Barnes & Nobel had it on the shelf last time I was in their Albuquerque store. That was a month or so ago. So I know it is still in print and available in some stores for inspection.

My apologies if I have violated any political boundaries. I believe good cooking unites people.
