How to Cook Everything


Title: How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman

Category: Nonficton, Cooking

Review: This is one of the best cookbooks I have ever read. It really is more than a cookbook. It is a resource for the common cook. Mark Bittman does an excellent job with this book. He divides the book up in various sections: vegetables, meats, fish, etc… and goes in depth in each one of them. With each section he starts off with what he calls ‘Essential Recipes’ then goes on and explains about the different parts of the section. For example, in the Meat section he divides it among beef, pork, lamb, etc… Also he has wonderful illustrations in each section that shows you, for example, to break down a chicken. Another helpful thing is that he gives alternatives to each recipe. So after each recipe, he has a list of options for what you can do different with the main recipe. I really loved reading this cookbook and I think Mr. Bittman did a great job on writing it. If you are looking for a basic cookbook to help you in the kitchen and to teach you what you need to know, then this is definitely for you.
