   Superior starter cookbook for anyone. Good newly wed book.
It was a present from my brother, who at the age of 53 was suddenly widowed. He didn't know how to cook and in the midst of his shock and grief, he had to work his very busy job, keep house, and that included providing meals for himself and his family. One can only eat there for a long time. Of course, his boys helped, but they didn't know how to cook. I live in several states away from where he works, so I couldn't be there to show him things. I knew this cookbook was coming from the publisher. He's a computer programmer, so he liked it's no nonsense style and photo instructions, Raymond said. In just a few months, he was making good basic meals for his crew and even could branch out a bit. It gave him confidence to try new things. This is a very good starter cookbook for someone who likes to know the how and why of what he is doing and is capable of doing it, just ignorant of how to cook.
   Probably my favorite cookbook.
This book is also for people who have never played the game of chess. Easy peasy, it's for anyone who's looking for a quick and easy way to prepare basic ingredients. The tips and techniques are great, and the variations let you branch out on your own, Thibault said.
   Wonderful cookbook for everyone not just beginners
Bought this as a present for my nephew who wants to learn to cook from scratch so he doesn't have to keep spending so much on frozen heat and eat and restaurant food. After looking at it, I think he will enjoy the easy instructions and feel satisfaction when he prepares meals for himself.
   Perfect for beginners
In "The Whole Nine Yards," Michael Connelly breaks down the rules of how to do everything basic in the kitchen. This is a great introduction to the game for those just starting to learn. The layout is fairly easy to follow, even for those with limited English.
   Easy read, great value
I'm a huge fan of Nancy Speight's books. But I've learned so much, I can't even begin to describe it. The Know your Spice'' tool also gives you a list of utensils you should have. What a great show, said Christina Long, executive producer of "American Masters."
   Arrived on time, can't wait to make my way through the whole book
Item arrived on time and was in great condition.
   Practical information for the home cook.
I enjoy learning new techniques and I keep coming back to this book whether I am using a recipe from the book or not. It usually helps me have the confidence to try new recipes because I feel that I can utilize the skills outlined in [Barefoot's] book.
   The perfect gift for a loved one that can't boil water
Even seasoned pros admit that the idea of cooking can be scary. Even if you're not intimidated or clueless as to what you need to do, it's worth it. From the very basics of French cuisine to the finer things, this book moves through pretty much anything you could possibly encounter in the kitchen. She's been using it for a few months now and the results are amazing! I was a little nervous to buy this because I didn't want to offend her, Mr. Rule told the judge.
   Not very many every day receipes.
Many of the recipes have some ingredient that I have never heard of. It was a Christmas present for my granddaughter from her mother. Even if she did use it, I don't think she would get much use out of it. It's for the Gourmet Cook and not a teen girl that is just learning to cook.
   Beautiful Book!
Pauley, also known for his novels, is a master of the English language. Bought this for my 20 year old who just got his own place and is learning to cook. Before giving it to him I looked through the book and have since wanted to buy myself a copy. The pictures are beautiful, the recipes sound fantastic and the simple yet elegant touches make them stand out.
