Entertaining and informative. I actually read it straight through - A Cooking Book! I wanted to learn just far enough beyond basics to be more creative and cook without a recipe. This book was exactly what I was looking for, and it got me all caught up on all that stuff most of us get from our moms or grandmothers that mine never bothered to teach me. I especially appreciated the chapter on cooking for one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Cook Like a Pro
I absolutely love this book! I highly recommend it for all beginners. I hated cooking before I got it, but when my dishes actually turned out I began to really enjoy cooking (I never thought that would happen). Now I cook like a chef and impress friends and family with my repetoire.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Book that's not for absolute dummies (like myself)
This book is good for the amateur chef, but doesn't do it all. Many helpful tips are found in this book, but there's just that feeling that not all of the basics are being covered. Some of the recipes aren't appealing (who would want to make braised cabbage with apple and caraway), and the 'bare necessities' list for a pantry seems a little too expansive (after all, how many people actually use mango chutney???). Other recipes are too basic (like steamed broccoli and how to make converted rice (just follow the instructions on the box!))Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
