A great beginning/basics course in cooking, highly recommended for newlyweds, graduates, or newly kicked-out-of-the-nest for whatever reason... If you just needed to know how to make mashed potatoes or fry an egg the right way without having to open a box or watch a 20-minute episode of Alton Brown's Good Eats refer to this book instead.

I read every page, every word, every recipe. Wonderful. Simple but informative (did you know that butter foams for a minute after it hits the saucepan because it's releasing water?) and funny, esp. when he says things like "If you use a light weight pan (tsk, tsk)" and "You can serve these with the shells on but don't let me hear about it." An excellent read for novice and experienced cooks. And, no, you don't have to read every word to get a lot out of this cookbook.
