Not, when cooking comes up. When I want to know how to prepare something the RIGHT way, I look here FIRST. I look here before I look in The Joy of Cooking, or any of my other cookbooks.
My poor old cookbook has packing tape on the spine to keep the spine in place. I use this book a lot, especially if I want to prepare a traditional food, such as Waffles.
Another reviewer said that some of the recipes may not be that healthy, but I disagree. This cookbook was written before there were a lot of processed foods, when mostly everything was made from scratch, so it would probably be healthier in that respect. In the War Time edition, which I have, there is a wonderful section about substituting various ingredients, like using honey instead of sugar, how to reduce meat consumption, etc.
I would say this book, even though it is old, is an essential cookbook for every kitchen.
It contains essential reference material, ranging from proper cooking time for all types of meat and fish, to all basic soup, sauce, dessert & dressing recipes, including even a proper table setting chart. It has been out of print for decades, but if you search out a clean volume, you will be pleased to pass it on after years of use.
