"Comfort food" is a label applied to simple, homey recipes--by and large, the recipes of youth, of home cooking in a family kitchen. It's an indication of the nation's culinary collapse that a book of comfort-food recipes should be necessary. But it is. Under a thin veneer of fancy-food devotees there lies an enormous population of people who don't know how to cook. Most of these people didn't hang around the family kitchen when they were young, learning by osmosis and by occasionally helping--for one reason or another, Mom hasn't been in the kitchen much. She's been at work, by necessity or by choice, and the old-fashioned 'home-ec' courses haven't been offered in schools for decades. These days, 'comfort food' for many people is Chinese take-out, and TV commercials push the idea that Mom is a great cook if she can warm up pre-packaged frozen dinners. So now people who are brave enough to enter a kitchen and try something more challenging than the microwave oven need a recipe book for something so simple as a grilled ham-and-cheese sandwich. This book is a good place to start. It's simpler even than "Joy of Cooking." The recipes are well-presented and clearly explained, one to a page. They span a wide variety of cuisines and styles, from pasta and that grilled sandwich to stir-fries and spicy chicken wings. All are simple and some are extremely simple--anyone who can read can handle them. And ought to. Cooking is a skill everyone should have. It will make you feel good to be able to do it--and you'll save a fortune on take-out food and frozen dinners, which are a lot more expensive than most people think. So--this book will save you money, teach you an important skill, give you a little more independence and boost your self-esteem. I don't see how you can resist. By Bill Marsano
