Here is the great basic American cookbook—with more than 1,990 recipes, plain and fancy—that belongs in every household.

Originally published in 1896 as The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book by Fannie Merritt Farmer, it became the coobook that taught generations of Americans how to cook. Completely updating it for the first time since 1979, Marion Cunningham made Fannie Farmer once again a household word for a new generation of cooks.

What makes this basic cookbook so distinctive is that Marion Cunningham, who is the personification of the nineteenth-century teacher, is always at your side with her forthright tips and comments, encouraging the beginning cook and inspiring the more adventurous. She knows what today's cooks are looking for, and she has a way of instilling confidence and joy in the act of cooking.

In giving the book new life, Mrs. Cunningham has been careful always to preserve the best of the old. She has retained all the particularly good, tried-and-true recipes from preceding editions, retesting and rewriting when necessary. She has rediscovered lost treasures, including delicious recipes that were eliminated when practically no one baked bread at home. This is now the place to find the finest possible recipes for Pumpkin Soup, Boston Baked Beans, Carpetbag Steak, Roast Stuffed Turkey, Anadama Bread, Indian Pudding, Apple Pie, and all of the other traditional favorites.

The new recipes reflect ethnic influences—Mediterranean, Moroccan, Asian—that have been adding their flavors to American cooking in recent years. Tucked in among all your favorites like Old-Fashioned Beef Stew, New England Clam Chowder, Ham Timbales, and Chicken Jambalaya, you'll find her cool Cucumber Sushi, Enchiladas with Chicken and Green Sauce, or a layered dish of Polenta and Fish to add variety to your repertoire. Always a champion of old-fashioned breakfasts and delectable desserts, Mrs. Cunningham has many splendid new offerings to tempt yo...

  • The Fannie Farmer Cookbook

    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.

  • A great basic cookbook

    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.
