Recommends it for: anyone who's responsible for everyday cooking
A good, standard, everyday, uncomplicated, wide-ranging, recipes-that-work-first-time, mostly inexpensive ingredients (and not too many of them), cookbook. The pages of my copy are stained, the spine is held on with tape. It's a working book; and surely that's one of the highest compliments anyone can pay to a cookbook? This is the cookbook to set up first home with.

It’s also got me into a GH collecting habit, because over the course of 60+ years, the contents of GH cookbooks have changed accord
If the mark of a good cookbook is how stained the pages are from actually cooking the recipes in it, then this must qualify as my favourite cookbook. If I doubt for basic information, it's the text I turn to most often and several of the recipes in it remain firm favourites. [return][return]Other cooks and cookbooks may come and go, may be more beautifully illustrated with more adventurous recipes, but this remains a standard.
