Description: Some good things simply get better. Here is America's most trusted kitchen companion -- The Settlement Cookbook -- completely revised and updated for the turn of the century. Since 1901, this classic has been the home cook's most reliable basic reference, happily passed on from generation to generation. Its unique heritage tells the story of our country's culinary tapestry, a fabric rich with immigration and cultural diversity. This spirit has endured through four revisions and 34 printings -- and 2 million copies.
Now The New Settlement Cookbook maintains this tradition while reflecting the changes in American eating habits. Designed with the modern home cook in mind, the new edition considers contemporary appliances -- such as the food processor and the microwave oven -- as well as our health concerns and busy schedules. This basic cookbook is perfect for both novice and expert. Beginning with beverages and culminating in a wide array of desserts and sweets, The New Settlement Cookbook is a complete guide to preparing all sorts of foods. Start with a basic technique, move to a simple recipe, and then explore the possible variations. The result is cooking ease and confidence with the pleasure of being both competent and creative in the kitchen.
In addition to all of our favorite Settlement ethnic dishes -- Cabbage Borsht, Stuffed Derma, Apple Strudel, and all those wonderful breads, cookies, and pastries -- here are recipes for contemporary comfort foods like Roast Chicken, White Bean Soup, Cornmeal Griddle Cakes, and Oranges in Caramel. There are over 1,000 clearly written, easy-to-follow recipes, as well as instructional line drawings and helpful charts, boxes, and primers. The result is a basic cookbook that keeps the time spent in the kitchen to a minimum while maximizing the pleasures at the table.
Whether you've been enjoying the former edition while eagerly awaiting the new or you're picking up your very first copy, The New Settlement Cookbook will quickly become your new old favorite and your most reliable kitchen reference.
