5.0 out of 5 stars Want great meals and don't have time to experiment?
For those of us who have found that home cooking is better than most restaurants, but don't have the time to develop the tastes yourself, the CIA books are a must for your kitchen. We've tried most every recipe and they have all been hits with our dinner friends! Follow the directions, add a bottle of wine and you've got a winner!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cultural cookbook
This book is very well written and has some great recipies. It also includes lots of information and recipies for different cultural celebrations, Chinese New Year, Thanksgiving, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah, to name a few. Recipies are not quick and easy but are for someone who has time to spend in the kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent culinary resource, October 10, 2003
By A Customer
My study group and I used this book as a reference for our baking and advanced baking classes and found it to be quite creative in its recipes. It is also well-written, which is half the battle in any culinary book. However, for our class exams in baking and advanced baking classes we used the following:
Study Guide for Baking: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations by Melissa Heilman
Study Guide for Advanced Baking: Key Review Questions and Answers with Explanations by Melissa Heilman
The last two study guides prepared us for our baking exams. They showed use the type of questions to watch out for on our exams. They helped us a lot because we all got very good grades.
