The prior review faulted it for indexing. It is true that the table of contents and indexing could have been improved, but if you know your Kindle, its not a big deal. At the end of the table of contents is the consolidated list of the 100 recipes. By merely flipping a few pages a reader can easily scan all the recipe names. Touch on the recipe title on your Kindle screen and the recipe appears. Moreover, the "List of Lists" feature is rather handy in that it divides recipes into categories such as: "For the Reluctant Cook", "For the Tired Cook", "For the Budget Minded", "For the Health Minded", etc.
Like all of ATK books, each recipe instruction contains a short introduction. But unlike some others, it also includes extended comments on "why this recipe works", a breakdown of the time required for each step, a list of essential cooking equipment, and comments on substitutions. Each recipe also includes recipe variations, and very detailed instructions on techniques (with plenty of photos).
Frankly, this is the most detail on a recipe I have seen for any cookbook, including those of ATK.
This book's strength is that it provides instruction on 'The Essential 100" - food that we all know (many of them basic). If, for example, you want to learn how to cook a pot roast, make a fish taco, make fried rice, or create a paella then this book is an excellent starter. As a self-taught cook (still in construction) I found the selection perfect for my missing skills and knowledge.
This book may not be appropriate for a widely accomplished home cook.Read more ›
I highly recommend this book! I will be buying a few copies for Christmas gifts. This would be especially good for newlyweds.
