This book is wonderful! It has a chart in back that tells you how long you can keep food before it goes bad. It explains about what tools are useful to have around your kitchen. And it also has simple recipes (most have 5 ingredients or less). So, it's prefect for someone who just wants a foundation.
My brother will never aspire to be a great chef, or enjoy cooking and baking like I do, but he really appreciates being able to make simple meals. And to know the basics of things.
This cookbook is good for first timers. It shows you all the basics and is a great stepping stone for our first time chefs.
I have a copy in my collection also. This one is a must have!
I do wish there were more seafood, meatless/anti-pasta, and dessert recipes included. I would NOT recommend this book for vegetarians.
I'm looking forward to getting through this book and advancing to other betty crocker books.
fundamentals of cooking. I have not cooked much before reading this book. It has helped me prepare many healthy meals for my two teenage daughters,who can be picky eaters. The book has many easy to prepare recepies that taste good. It is a good book to learn better cooking skills.
