Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In its 13th edition, a classic American cookbook is here revised for the contemporary home cook. Restaurant consultant and San Francisco Chronicle columnist Cunningham has added chapters on microwave and outdoor cooking, cut down on excessive fats and revived lost comfort foods lemon curd, semolina pudding. Warnings about salmonella and other health concerns are highlighted; abundant new and vegetarian recipes are conveniently marked. Cunningham's 325 additions to the Farmer roster use ingredients from ethnic cuisines, including Mexican and Indian spices and Chinese sesame oil and rice vinegar. Contradicting manufacturers' claims for the microwave oven, she carefully explains its best uses steaming or braising foods and offers recipes specifically designed to take advantage of its virtues quick polenta, bananas in caramel sauce. True to its American roots, this remains an excellent meat-and-potatoes cookbook, but exhibits welcome range--from frankfurters to roast goose, smoked salmon tartare to trail mix--relishing food as a social enterprise.

Library Journal
This `` Fannie Farmer for the Nineties'' is not so very different from the Fannie Farmer for the Eighties. Cunningham's major revision and 12th edition of this 94-year-old title was published in 1979; for this edition, she has dropped some ``stodgy'' recipes and added 300 new ones--Lobster Newburg, Capellini with Salsa Cruda, Baked Apples. There are new, fairly brief chapters on microwaving, outdoor cooking, and vegetarian dishes new dishes and other vegetarian dishes are highlighted throughout the book. This by no means replaces the 12th edition, but Fannie Farmer remains a classic, making Cunningham's latest revision essential for most collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 5/1/90.
From Barnes & Noble
From the author who made Fannie Farmer a household name for a new generation of cooks comes this newly revised edition for the 1990s. Filled with tips on cooking equipment and techniques, the book includes chapters on delicious vegetarian fare, as well as an expanded nutritional chart for the health- and diet-conscious. New recipes reflect a diversity of ethnic influences, from Mediterranean to Mexican and Asian; and, of course, there are still "old favorites" like New England Clam Chowder, Chicken Jambalaya, and Old-Fashioned Beef Stew. 2-color illus.

STANDING RIB ROAST
(Allow 1/2 - 1 pound per serving)

1 standing rib roast, at least 4 pounds
1/4 cup beef broth or water
Salt
Freshly ground pepper

Cooking time varies widely, depending on the shape of the roast and internal temperature. You'll need a meat thermometer.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place the meat, fat side up, in a shallow open pan and allow it to come to room temperature. Roast for approximately 20 minutes to the pound. Insert a meat thermometer toward the end of the estimated cooking time: the meat is rare at 130 degrees, medium at 140 degrees, and well done at 160 degrees. Remove from the oven when the thermometer registers 5 degrees lower than the desired temperature, and let the roast sit on a carving board while the Yorkshire pudding bakes, if you are making it, and while you make a simple gravy: the roast will continue to cook and become easier to carve. Drain off most of the fat and place the roasting pan over a burner. Add the broth or simply 1/4 cup of water, and stir and scrape with a large kitchen spoon, loosening the brown glaze on the bottom of the pan. Add more liquid if you wish and salt and pepper to taste, and cook over low heat until well blended, about 2 minutes. Spoon over slices of carved beef.
To carve a rib roast: 1. The old-fashioned way has always been to stand the roast on its ribs and carve downward in slices as thin as you wish.
2. The more porfessional method, particularly for a many-ribbed roast and thicker slices, is to lay the roast on its side. First cut along the rib to loosen the meat from the bone, then make horizontal slices.

Rolled Rib Roast Place meat in a V-shaped rack and increase cooking time to approximately 30 minutes to the pound. Allow 1/3 pound per serving. Carve as would Pot Roast.

YORKSHIRE PUDDING
Serves six

1/4 cup roast beef pan drippings
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon salt

First cousin to the popover, this crisp, golden-brown puff is a glorious accompaniment to Roast Beef. Remove the roast from the oven 25 minutes before it is to be served. it's essential that it be cooked in the roast beef fat and drippings, which flavor it so beautifully. The Yorkshire pudding will cook while the roast "rests" and can be brought to the table after you have carved the meat. Turn the oven up to 450 degrees and pour the pan drippings into a 9 X 9-inch pan or an 11 X 7-inch pan. Put the pan in the oven to keep sizzling while you prepare the batter. Combine the eggs, milk, flour, and salt and beat until well blended. Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake 25-30 minutes. Serve piping hot from the baking pan, a generous square with each helping of roast beef.

    Eternal Usefulness

    For day-to-day practical use, The Fannie Farmer Cookbook is my standard for reliability. I have worn out three FF Cookbooks in my 30+ years of marriage. My daughters use theirs and I recommend it for everything from spaghetti sauce, beef stew and roast beef to lemon squares, fruit preserves, and Lazy Daisy Cake.

    Excellent Cookbook

    Although this book has receipes it's a cookbook. It teaches you how to cook. It's the one book I have used consistently. It has a lot of long lost knowledge on cooking. It's very informative. Anyone can follow a receipe but this book teaches you how to cook from scratch because it educates you on cooking.

    Excellent cookbook! Worth every penny!

    This is a great cookbook. The recipes turn out great every time and are easy to follow. There are a wide assortment of recipes and chances are this cookbook will have the recipe you need making other cookbooks unnecessary. In addition, it has a number of helpful hints on picking out the best produce and basic food preparation.

    The perfect book to begin the cooking adventure

    This is the first cook book I was given. In fact my first cookbook.
    This is the basic primer for cooking. Easy to use, easy to find recipes and easy to follow. It isn't gourmet in its content, but if you want to learn how to cook, without shelling out thousands to a school, this is the best place to start.

    I have used this cookbook exclusively for years!!! It contains the everything!!! It provides the easiest to the most challenging of recipies. Best of all, it truly is the most comprehensive, it includes information to host dinners, parties and intimate entertaining. It provides listings of staples for the kitchen, and explaines kitchen equipment. Both front and back covers have tips, measurements, and cooking temperatures for quick & easy referral. This is a great gift for new and well-seasoned cooks alike!

    Most cookbooks are fun; this one is a must.

    When I didn't know how to cook, this book took me by the hand and made me bold and unafraid. Every recipe has been a great success. When you cook everything from scratch you stop buying prepared foods, and your savings at the grocery store are impressive. This is required reading for anyone going out on their own, as cooking and kitchen management are important to health and finances. This is my third or fourth volume -- I've killed them all! I resolve to be kinder to this one by using sticky flags to mark the page edges instead of bookmarks that break its binding.

    Generations of great cooking

    I remember this cookbook being around our kitchen since I was a little girl. It was the first cookbook I purchased as an adult and have never been happier with it. There is a recipe for EVERYTHING in this book and they are fairly simple for the most part. I have used mine so often that I have gone through several copies because of torn and worn out pages. It is an essential part of every kitchen and I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to cook or bake.

    back in print

    I am sooo glad that this is back in print now. Fannie Farmer is my all time gift for weddings or young people setting up house. There is absolutely everything in here. and everything from scratch. We made "sponge cake" from this book. Dynomite!! and very good for preparing cuts of meat and looking up ingredientss for regular stuff like bottle salad dressings that used to be made at home all the time.
