For those who are terrified by the word saute or don't have the faintest idea of what to do with a colander, this is the perfect book. Corn is a food writer, cooking teacher, and author of the irresistible Gooey Desserts (LJ 11/15/93). Her new book grew out of a newspaper series, and it explains, in an extremely unintimidating manner, everything from how to boil water for pasta to the easiest way to clean up the kitchen. Along the way, there are 120 recipes, all of them simple but most of them intended to be served to company (as well as family). In the same vein as Lora Brody's The Kitchen Survival Guide (LJ 5/15/92) but more "grown-up," this is recommended for most collections.
