I got this as a wedding present and I've used it a lot! It's an alphabetical list of cooking information. You can look up just about any fruit or veggie to see how to choose a good one and how to prepare it. Or look up a cooking term like braise or chiffonade and see basic instructions. Meat cuts, storing cheeses, pans. It's just a food all-round kitchen reference, whether you're new to cooking or experienced.
