The New Basics Cookbookby Julee Rosso and Sheila Lukins
Rosso and Lukins's New Basics is a fantastic overall cooking resource. I'm a bit of a cookbook nut, yet, of all the volumes on my shelves, this is the one that I regularly return to for ideas, guidance on the fundamentals (measurements, roasting time, flavor pairings, etc.), and the plethora of delicious recipes. In lieu of photos, there are detailed drawings that illustrate complicated steps or just add a little character to the page, all of which are a lovely complement to the easy-to-use layout and organization of the chapters. The New Basics gets high marks from this cook.
