This is a great general cookbook to have on hand. It covers a variety of dishes and the recipes are simple enough for most cooks to manage easily. (You might want to note that I am the kind of cook who likes to make things from scratch, but I'm not always in the mood for something really complicated, either). Because the recipes are delicious, simple, and would appeal to most people, this book would be a great gift for someone who likes to cook.
One of the things I enjoy most about this book is its style. The author includes informational commentary about regional cuisine and useful food facts besides just the recipes. I think this is what prompted me to purchase another one of her cookbooks, The New Basics. I think I like this book a little better, but both are wonderful.
In this work, she organizes different from other cookbooks: this is by type of meal, i.e. Coffee Break, Dinnertime, Cocktail Hour, etc. Neat Approach!
I'm about venturing out and stretching myself with such as Berrty-Stewed Rabbit and Sour Cherry Lamb Shanks, but there is also the solid favorites as Fried Chicked served "Super Crispy Buttermilk" style and other red, white and blue favorites.
This is good, solid cookbook for a new cook or bride, etc. Great as a gift. I've given this one and received compliments for its usefulness. Much to explore in this excellent researched and presented huge volume (over 600 pages.)
