For the student ready to move away from microwaving frozen burritos, he has many great ideas. Most of them are designed to fit into "dorm room" cooking - i.e. no open heat source, microwave & rice cooker only. Slanting towards the more sophisticated palate (fresh ginger, baby spinach, goat cheese etc.)

LOVE LOVE LOVE! I bought this for my friend's daughter who just started college. As a culinary school graduate, I was pleased to see that it has information about basic cooking techniques and tools along with a myriad of recipes ranging from "dorm legal" items (only things that dorms allow including microwave, mini fridge, iron, scissors, etc.) to studio (hot plate, crock pot) meals, and finally through apartment cooking. The recipes are tasty and healthy and provide a welcome change from standard dorm food.

Format: Paperback
This is an amazing cookbook! This cookbook is chock full of easy to make, delicious recipes...not the run of the mill type of ho-hum recipes often found in other cookbooks. Despite the title, this cookbook has something in it for everyone, from the novice to the seasoned pro. I know...my wife has got tons of cookbooks, but none as good as or as helpful as this one! Dave really knows food and he shares his knowledge with you as if you were talking to a friend. I bought this cookbook for my two nieces who are either in college or are getting ready to go. They both loved it! The only problem they had was trying to pry it away from their parents, who also loved it
