This is the best all purpose cookbook that I've seen in over 50 years. It has all the standard recipes plus it even explains how to sharpen a kitchen knife and maintain most other kitchen equipment and serving pieces. Also has a great section called "Know your ingredients" including a list of equivalents & substitutions for common ingredients and some cooking techniques . It's been around since 1931 and was completely revised in 1997. Includes menu ideas. Spiral binding makes for easier use.
If you are interested in cooking or starting to cook this is a must have item for your kitchen. This edition is the best one. The later ones are just not up to par with this one...this is the one to stock in your kitchen. You'll never regret it. It covers way more than recipes. Ingredient info, cooking techniques, prep techniques, you name it, it's got it. You'll use this cookbook more than any other cause it has the answers; how long do you steam cauliflower? how do you make a white sauce? what are the best ways to cook different cuts of beef? Like the title says - it's an all purpose cookbook.
I bought 2 copies because someone borrowed my copy, and never returned it, and the other one for a friend whose copy was falling apart.
The price was right $0.99 each and well worth the shipping charges.
I would recommend this book for those are just starting to learn how to cook as eihter a hobby or as a proffession.
This is a great reference cookbook for all cooks but especially important for the beginning cook embarking on daily meals and everyday home baked goods. This older version from the early 70's has smaller portions for meal recipes and used natural ingredients for baking. It has a substitution tables, measurement tables , ingredient definitions and explanations of process. I have been in the kitchen daily for the last 35 years and I still use this cookbook.
