She was sick and we were both very hopeful that she would get better. She was lying on the couch in the living room and asked me to boil her a potato. I, being 19, had NO idea how to boil a potato! But I did not want to bother her about it - so I went into the kitchen and started up the pot of water.
Not only did I ruin that cute little potato ... but I saw my grandmother lose it!! She came into the kitchen and saw the whole ...more
The pre-1997 editions are good if you want to can or pickle your own veg, cook opossum, and make aspic.
The fifth edition, ie the 75th Anniversary edition shown in the picture above, contains too much retro-inspired nonsense and does not continue the practical and innovative approach laid out in the 1997 edition.
Basically, the 1997 edition took the heart of the Joy of Cooking, that is, that it is a book that contains all the recipes your average american cook ...more
The book cover claims that this edition has revised over 4,000 recipes and added 600 new ones! It is certainly bigger both in format and in weight. I agree with the authors choice not to add photos of the recipes both for space consideration and because there is nothing that dates ...more
What do I like most about The Joy of Cooking? It is fairly encyclopedic, covering about as broad a range of cooking topics as it can; while most of the recipes are from the Western tradition, ...more

also, you can cook ...more
More than just an extensive and thorough cookbook, this is a culinary reference work, containing all ...more
This book has a recipe for just about anything you might want to cook, and several things that you might not. Having said that, if it's not in the book, it might not be worth cooking. Not only are there 1000's of recipes, there is good gouge on substitutes, sauces, dips, how to ...more
My cooking Bible. I could not live without it.
From drinks, to appetizers, to brunch, to soups, to tasty vegetable dishes, to meat courses, to fish, to desserts...this is it!
I've learned to prepare rabbits and squirrel, made spaetzle and dumplings, elegant desserts like pears soaked in wine and cream...and so many more!
Not bad for a woman whose first prepared meal was overcooked linguini (20 minutes in a pot) and canned, cold clam sauce. :-0
5 stars /A++++++++++
Not for lack of want, but for lack of time. It's been on my "currently reading" list for 3+ years, and I haven't touched even a quarter of the recipes inside.
Of what I did make (mostly eggs, cookies, and a handful of miscellaneous items), JOY OF COOKING is a solid introduction to home cooking for people who can't boil an egg to save their lives. Some of the recipes are peak Bland White People Cooking, the sort of stuff that lives only at questionable potluck dinners and school ...more
