The New Basics Cookbook

by

The New Basics Cookbook Cover

 

Staff Pick

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.

It's the 1.8-million-copy bestselling cookbook that's become a modern-day classic. Beginning cooks will learn how to boil an egg. Experienced cooks will discover new ingredients and inspired approaches to familiar ones. Encyclopedic in scope, rich with recipes and techniques, and just plain fascinating to read, The New Basics Cookbook is the indispensable kitchen reference for all home cooks.

This is a basic cookbook that reflects today's kitchen, today's pantry, today's taste expectations. A whimsically illustrated 875-recipe labor of love, The New Basics features a light, fresh, vibrantly flavored style of American cooking that incorporates the best of new ingredients and cuisines from around the world.

Over 30 chapters include Fresh Beginnings; Pasta, Pizza, and Risotto; Soups; Salads; every kind of Vegetable; Seafood; The Chicken and the Egg; Grilling from Ribs to Surprise Paella; Grains; Beef; Lamb, Pork; Game; The Cheese Course, and Not Your Mother's Meatloaf. Not to mention 150 Desserts! Plus, tips, lore, menu ideas, at-a-glance charts, trade secrets, The Wine Dictionary, a Glossary of Cooking Terms, The Panic-Proof Kitchen, and much more.
