Guide Review

Food How-To at your Fingertips
This cookbook takes all the basic essential knowledge necessary for general cooking and wraps it up in one slick volume. General basics covering equipment, measuring, food safety, storage, nutrition, grilling, beer and wine get you on your merry way.

Recipes are broken down into standard categories. Included are classic recipes, new modern recipes, and ethnic specialties, each with nutritional data and heart-healthy symbols when applicable. Full-color photos expert tips, and pictorial how-tos are generously sprinkled throughout.

Bonuses include handy substitution, equivalent, measurement and cooking time charts. A must-have feature for me is a detailed index, and this book doesn't disappoint.

Look out JOC, you have competition.
