Description: At last there is one cookbook to own that answers the needs of almost everyone, no matter how experienced or inexperienced in the kitchen. There are recipes for those who yearn for involvement with the raw materials of cooking, who long to make soup the old-fashioned way or feel a yeast dough respond to their touch. There are recipes for busy women who must put a good meal on the table fast. And there are culinary tours de force for the occasional showpiece dinner. This is the most up-to-date book available, for it teaches the whys as well as the hows of cooking.
It's the first cookbook that provides calorie counts for each of its over 4000 recipes, featuring budget-stretching and time-saving. Each special feature is readily identified by a graphic symbol.
It is the only comprehensive cookbook that is not derived from any magazine or food company but was developed from the beginning as all-new recipes and material.
Here, too, is a book that emphasizes savory recipes (soups, meats, poultry, seafood, vegetables, and salads) instead of sweets, because of our increasing awareness of good nutrition, and that explains how to cook using metric measurements (as Americans may soon be doing). Each recipe has been tested and retested and is given with exact times, temperatures, and descriptions of how it should look and taste when done.
There are hundreds of pages on shopping, freezing, leftovers, buying and using kitchen equipment, canning, herbs and spices, mixing drinks, dieting, new cooking techniques (the coolrise method of making yeast breads, for example), consumer information (grading, inspection, package labeling, etc.).
Condition: Good condition. Minor shelf wear on dust jackets.
