The 'Bible' turned into microwave cliff notes,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The All New All Purpose: Joy of Cooking (Hardcover)
While I have dozens of cookbooks with exotic recipes, I've always relied on 'Joy' for those basics (like canning, preserving, freezing, substituting) and tips you can't find anywhere else. Sure, the new 'Joy' has discovered the food processor and microwave, but has discarded many of those tried and true basics along the way. If you want to replace your worn out, dog earred old copy, get the regular 'Joy', not the new, 'enhanced' one.
