Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Like Family Circle magazine, this cookbook is admirable both for its consistency and for its depth of information: much is attempted, and few stones are left unturned. Nutritional data, recipes for all parts of meals, and information on microwave and quick cooking are included. Some recipes are emphatically traditional, such as ``Old-Fashioned Corn Pudding'' and New England boiled dinner, while others are more inventive--e.g., catfish and black bean stew and sauteed cucumber. Nonetheless, despite the mass of recipes and facts, the book lacks an interesting voice. It wants for idiosyncrasy. Some other cookbooks that bear an institutional imprimatur also find individuality, distinguishing themselves through the traces of their past editions or the peculiarities of their test kitchens. This one, though, attempts to be all-new and all-inclusive, and instead seems to rumble with the sounds of focus groups and editorial boards. The result: solid, uninspiring recipes and daunting amounts of ancillary information on each page. Photos not seen by PW. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternate; first serial to Family Circle. ( Sept .)
Library Journal
Family Circle 's ambitious new book is packed with charts and tables, cooking tips, sidebars and boxes on a wide range of topics, color photographs of cooking techniques and the finished dishes, and more than 700 recipes. The recipes are more sophisticated than one might expect, inspired by a variety of cuisines, and most use only fresh ingredients, with very few relying on convenience foods (no canned cream soups here). Nutrition information is given for each, and low-fat and low-cholesterol dishes are highlighted, as are quick recipes. The name alone ensures demand, but this is quite an impressive effort. Be aware, however, that the format is a looseleaf binder.

    A great resource!

    This cookbook is a great resource. There are many traditional recipes as well as some new twists on old ideas. There is some great explanations about different vegetables, and grains. Many good soup and veggie dishes for any occaision. Some of the recipes are somewhat involved but many are quite straightforward and the results are worth the effort. If you are looking for a cookbook to add a little variety to your menu, this one is worthy of consideration.
