I have an older, recovered version of this book. If the new version is anything like the original, no cook can live without it! My version has no wonderful pictures, but TONS of information -- a total breakdown of beef and pork cuts, for example, and the best cooking methods for each. A measurement equivalent table. A TON of cake recipes, from the very basic to the most glamorous. My ex mother-in-law used to make something she called "cottage cake", and yep, it's in here as the 'basic butter cake" -- 10 minutes start to oven. You can NOT o wrong with this cookbook -- your cooking reference for life!

I have had this book since 1971m my mother got hers in 1941.
Every female member of my family for 4 generations has/will received this cookbook for a wedding gift.
It is absolutely the best book for a beginning cook. Full of everything you need to know to prepare food and drink.
I bought one for my baby daughter when she was 1 and years later I am glad I did. They are hard to find and now that she is old enough to learn to cook it is proving again the best tool for that task.
Buy this book - I guarantee you will use it again and again.
