There are also over 840 pages, with more than 2,100 authentic heirloom recipes which include appetizers and soups, fish and meat dishes, vegetables, salads, breads, pies, cakes, pickles, relishes and preserves. There are quite a number of excellent ethnic and cultural recipes along with endless cooking and serving tips.
All of the recipes here are presented in a doable manner although I will tell you that some of them do require cooking experience. That being said, there are plenty of offerings to keep the beginner busy for weeks upon weeks.
(Hey, they even have the classic Green Bean Casserole included and despite my overall dislike for this particular dish, I have to admit that the one featured here is not half bad.)
Like another reviewer here, we have not tried one recipe in this book (and there have been many of them) that did not turn out great and as it was suppose to.
This is a wonderful resource book and we use it all the time to supplement are rather extensive collection of cookbooks. I know I have said this before about other books, but if you had to pick only one cookbook to use for the rest of your life...well, this one would not be a bad choice at all. Our copy is kind of sort of falling apart and if we live much longer I suppose we will eventually have to replace it.
