Anyone Can Cook: Step-By-Step Recipes Just for You (Better Homes & Gardens)by Better Homes and Gardens
Synopses & Reviews
There's a new generation-wired, individualistic, and.hungry. They crave home-cooked meals but lack kitchen confidence-until now! Anyone Can Cook, the latest cornerstone cookbook by Better Homes and Gardens(r), will satisfy this culinary-curious group (45 million strong). The Better Homes and Gardens(r) Anyone Can Cook book has broken with tradition. What's groundbreaking is that it teaches aspiring cooks in the same kind of highly visual format that most have grown up with.
In fact, nothing prepares you for the way this book is laid out. You just want to keep flipping through it even if you're not cooking. Its personal atmosphere and easy, relaxed tones evokes days when you pulled up a stool in mom's kitchen and got ready to lick the beaters.
An intro chapter covers the basics like never before: kitchen equipment (with loads of big photos and advice on what's essential and what's nice to own), a pantry stocking chart to save newbies from multiple supermarket forays, important food safety information, and essential ingredient knowledge. (How many melon balls in a cantaloupe? What's the difference in onions and what's a shallot? Just what every new cook needs.)
But the genius of this book is that it slam dunks the reader into action with photos and recipes so fun and approachable they're impossible to resist--like the guacamole pummeled to perfection in a zippered plastic bag.
Better yet, this book may be aimed at beginners, but its truly helpful format is sure to reel in seasoned cooks too.
No other book looks or cooks like this one! Whether you're a novice or seasoned cook, this book is for you.
