The All New Good Housekeeping Cook Bookby Susan Westmoreland
For more than a century, the Good Housekeeping name has stood for quality. And with this dazzling, comprehensive 832-page book, the tradition continues. Whether you are a novice or an expert, the 1,500 recipes and 600 color photographs make this the basic cookbook for the 21st century: one you'll turn to again and again for dishes to suit every occasion, any time of the year.
The easy-to-read, step-by-step recipes make them a snap to prepare -- and they're all triple-tested. Here are the best-ever versions of time-honored classics, such as hearty Spaghetti and Meatballs, billowy Lemon Meringue Pie, streusel-ribboned Sour Cream Coffee Cake, and succulent Apple and Thyme Roast Chicken. Or impress your family with one of the "new classics," such as Thai Beef with Basil, Veal with Tomato and Arugula Salad, or Molten Chocolate Cakes. You'll also find 100 expert tip boxes, where some of America's best chefs and cooking teachers share their secrets.
The book opens with a Basics chapter that gives the scoop on kitchen equipment and the rules of food safety, storage, and grilling. The entertaining section includes setting a table correctly, and a comprehensive cooking glossary completes the chapter.
Dozens of how-to photos will help you easily master cooking techniques for everything from butterflying a roast to turning out picture-perfect gnocchi. This cookbook also includes symbols denoting recipes you can make in thirty minutes or less as well as those that are heart-healthy.
There are twenty-two recipe-packed chapters, including Poultry, Soups, Cakes, Sandwiches, Pasta, Frozen Desserts, Quick Breads, and Fish. Each begins with an overview of all the information you need to get started. For example, in the Egg chapter you'll learn how to choose, store, and cook eggs, as well as how to beat them perfectly. Color photographs of pasta, rice, fruits, and vegetables, along with handy roasting charts and illustrated meat-cuts charts are beautiful and informative.
This book is the only guide you'll need for buying, cooking, serving, and storing food. With the trusted name of Good Housekeeping behind every recipe, The All New Good Housekeeping Cook Book deserves a place in your kitchen.
