This is a basic cookbook for all of you who would like to learn basic techniques instead of going to the store and purchasing pre-formed, pre-packaged products. If you want to learn how to use kohlrabi or how to make puff pastry this is the cookbook for you. It explains how to use produce, meats and dry goods without going into the realms of haute cuisine. Save yourself a lot of heartache and buy this cookbook before you buy the fancy, glossy pictured cookbooks that tell you "go to the store freezer section and buy a package of puff pastry:" This book tells you how to make almost everything you will ever need to know from scratch. An excellent resource.

I already had this cookbook but, order this one as an early gift for my granddaughter. She's a teenager and has a real interest in cooking,baking,etc. She loves it. It is so easy to follow and has so many recipes. This is a good book for someone just learning or long time cooks! Grat value. Luv overstock.com!!
I had a very old copy that I have used for the last 30 years whenever I need a basic recipe or "how to" for cooking meats, sauces, desserts. It was so old it was falling apart so getting this new copy was great and nice to have updated layout. I think it is one of the best all around basic cookbooks.
