Staff Pick

I am not an experienced cook and I spent my 20s and 30s being a vegetarian, so this book is my absolute go-to book for basics and for cooking meat. I have owned my copy for 35 years. I rolled my eyes when my mother gave it to me and I cherish it now.

Publisher Comments:

With 1,000 recipes and photos, this is the ultimate all-purpose cookbook. The newest edition is completely revised and redesigned, with new chapters, recipes, icons and useful information, to be more beautiful and useful than ever before. A Cooking Basics chapter in the intro section is the ultimate resource for beginners: it includes a glossary of cooking ingredients, terms and techniques; advice on stocking a pantry; and visual guides on identifying tricky foods like hot peppers. Recipe chapters are organized alphabetically and cover everything from Appetizers and Snacks to Vegetables and Fruits. Three new chapters on Breakfast and Brunch, Casseroles, and Convenience Cooking reflect today's cooking trends, and make these favorite dishes easier to find. 1,000 recipes for every meal and every occasion, from a fancy sit-down dinner to speedy lunches on the go. Include all of the classic, best-loved recipes, along with modern flavors. Special features throughout include Make it Mine, providing mix-and-match options to tailor recipes; Cook Once, Eat Twice, giving people two delicious, varied meals--with only one set of dishes; and Ten to Try, collections of ten no-recipe recipes with easy ideas for simple cheesecake drizzles, flavored butters, baked fish toppings and more. Icons highlight classic, fast, whole grain, low-fat, and healthy recipes for easy reference. 1,000 photos include both step-by-step process shots offering guidance on the most critical steps, as well as inspirational finished recipe photos. A heavy-duty binder format makes this book a keepsake that will last for years to come.

Gary Becker, January 8, 2013 (view all comments by Gary Becker)
Secretly and after 50 years of cookbook collecting, this is my #1 favorite. I received mine in the 50's and have carried it around ever since-we give one to every new bride, graduating student, and all the newly single persons on our gift lists. Modest, tried and true recipes that do not fail with instructions on how to prepare and serve them, a must for the beginner and a great springboard for the up and coming chef in your family or anyone that wants to avoid too many fast food meals but not be too extravagant in style-you know, just plain good food.
