It's hard to live up to the term 'bible'. It must be true because there are many other cooking related books on the market right now using the same term that don't seem to even try. The good news about this book, is that it makes a valient effort. If you own a stand mixer, and have already made the $200 and up investment, putting another $20 dollars toward this book seems a smart move. The Mixer Bible introduces you to the basic as well as more advanced features of your machine. About half of the recipes do not need any attachments beyond what you get with the standard mixer. The other half show you how to make the most of the optional attachments available. What I really liked about this book is the quality of the recipes. They are easy to follow, and after executing well over a dozen, not one has been a let down. The recipes are detailed and will even tell you what speed to set your mixer at for each step. There are only a couple of issues I had, or could imagine others having with this book. It's definitely intended for the KitchenAid mixer. Although, I think the average cook could work with most of the recipes using a different brand. Some of the recipes are geared towards attachments that are a little esoteric. The rotor/slicer is not an attachment that most cooks will own. That said, I took the recipe, used my food processor for the slicing and proceeded to make the best vegetable soup recipe I'd ever made. So, even with a few minor drawbacks, I feel this book is a great investment for anyone with a mixer.
This cookbook is absolutely a must if you own a stand mixer. The recipes are great and the helpful info about how to properly use your mixer is invaluable. If you're going to spend the money on a good stand mixer, you should really make sure a have a great book like this to help you learn how to make the most of it!
I received this book as a gift alnong with several attachements for my Kitchen Aid a couple of months ago. It has been incredibly useful and really expanded usefullness of my Kitchen Aid. The recipes I've used ( 6 or 8) have been easy to follow and tasty. The pasta recipes and the pasta roller attachment are real winners. This is a great book if you've got a Kitchen Aid.
