Hey coolscotty

I have not heard of the one you have mentioned but I use the Larousse Gastronomique.
I saw that a new edition was recently published by Hamlyn.

Its a serious "bible" , check out amazon they might have the new one.

Hi Scotty
Theres two that I think meet your description The first is Escoffier The Complete Guide To The Art of Modern Cooking. Also the one we used to call the Bible was called La Repitoire of Cuisine this is a great little book for terms and names and obviously ingredients. Good Luck and Good Cooking.
