Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A huge, wide-ranging, updated, substantially expanded version of the 1975 Tastemaker Awardwinning Doubleday Cookbook, this compendious reference work makes up in sheer volume for what it lacks in grace of layout and design. It boasts over 4000 recipes running from the inevitable and familiar to the international and exotic. It spills over with information on nutrition, on equipment such as blenders, processors and convection and microwave ovens, with all manner of charts and tables, judicious guidance on calorie, sodium and cholesterol counts, with sensible advice on saving time and money, reliable counsel on assembling a well-furnished kitchen and well-stocked pantry and freezer. A noteworthy contemporary guide to the world of food and cooking. October 18

This is one of the world’s greatest cookbooks.  I wish it was still in print.   I give it as a wedding gift to young people and it’s very difficult to find it new these days, not to mention the cost because new is rare.

I bought the cookbooks (originally came as a set of two) in the late 1970's. Over the years, whenever I, my children, or grandchildren had a question on how to do or make something, I always pulled out my Doubleday cookbooks. They had everything from rosemary to racoon, pickled pears to pralines, tournados to toffee, Dalmation marinated fish to divinity. If you could think of a dish, any dish or food, it was in the books. Now, well-used and dog-eared, I was thrilled to see a new edition. No serious cook should be without it. You may never have a pallet for turtle soup or cow tongue, but you can definitely learn how they are prepared. I have yet to find a single resource that covers such a broad range of both classic and ethnic recipes. If you love the art of food, this will become your bible.

My parents have enjoyed using this cookbook and now I am purchasing a copy for me and my fiance. I am sure that my family will continue to use this cookbook from generations to come. I strongly recommend this wonderful cooking instrument to everyone.

Like a few other reviewers, I too recieved my copy of the New Doubleday Cookbook as a wedding gift over 17 years ago. I love this book. It is impossible to find a bad recipe. My family hates to eat liver, but they loved the Braised Liver recipe. It was so tender and delicious that my family calls it the 'have again recipe' and this book is loaded with 'have again recipes'.

My sister gave me this book as my wedding present. It is the last cookbook I will ever use! I love this cookbook so much that I do not even think about getting frozen dinners for quick meals! You name it and it is in this book, no matter how long it takes to cook it, or how little preperation is needed! And another great thing about this book is that my husband is from England and always complains about our measures, this book has a great conversion in it and all his favorite recipies from England! Most excellent cookbook ever! Thank you Jean and Elaine for the time put into this book.

My husband won mine 20 years ago. I love it so much that I couldn't imagine my own daughter starting out in her own kitchen without it.

If I would ever have to recommend a cookbook, this would be the one. Great for beginning cooks and advanced cooks. Not only full of excellent recipes but chocked full of useful information. Like everyone else, mine too is held together with tape and it's time for a new one though I will always keep my old one.

I received my copy as a wedding present in 1986. My new husband suggested that I pick a new recipe from it each week and give it a try. I haven`t had a failed dish yet. And we are still married! Like the other reviewers, mine is also held together with duct tape, LOL! It also has a burn mark on the cover because I sat it on an electric stove burner that I didn`t know was on! Anyway, I am here to buy a new copy. Mine is just falling apart. I`ve already taped it together twice! Enough! Time to buy a new one.
