Product Description

Review

'A gem for the inexperienced and experienced...this is a most useful book to add to any cookery shelf.' (Yorkshire Gazette & Herald, 30th May 2012)

From the Inside Flap

"Mark is an important voice in American home cooking, and this new book is essential for anyone wanting tasty, easy, fresh recipes."
Jamie Oliver, Celebrity Chef and Activist

Photography by Romulo Yanes

Since its publication in 1998, Mark Bittman's award-winning How to Cook Everything has become an indispensable kitchen staple. This modern classic serves as both an endlessly inspiring recipe collection and comprehensive reference for cooks of all ages and abilities.

Now, with How to Cook Everything The Basics, Bittman has provided a book for true beginners and perennial students, one that captures the pleasure and simplicity of everyday home cooking and makes it accessible to everyone, in full-color, step-by-step action.

The Basics is the ultimate confidence-builder. Whether you're just learning your way around a stove or are hungry for detailed guidance, Bittman's sensible approach, along with instructive, realistic photography, offers just the encouragement you need.

How to Cook Everything The Basics is a rare cookbook that teaches by example. Each of the 1,000 gorgeous photographs and 185 recipes has a story to tell and a lesson to share (you'll find a list of them in the back of the book), all in a casual, unfussy way that makes meals as enjoyable to prepare as they are to eat.

The Basics also provides commonsense advice on how to stock your kitchen with equipment and ingredients, while special features scattered throughout offer useful information on general techniques like cooking pasta, choosing and using seafood, making bread, and 26 other skills for identifying and preparing foods from vegetables and beans to meats, soups, and desserts.

Along the way, Bittman's practical tips and variations, descriptive visual cues, and straightforward explanations will help you recognize doneness, taste and adjust seasoning, and learn to trust your instincts. How to Cook Everything The Basics is the next best thing to having America's favorite home cook right in the kitchen with you.

Format: Hardcover
This book is just perfect! It is the new Joy of Cooking, with more modern recipes, less sugar, and so beautifully illustrated. It gives you little cooking lessons in a simplified manner. And there is only one recipe for a two-page spread. PERFECT! This will become a classic, a book to pass down to your children! Perfect for the beginner, or one like me who just needs the basic to make my cooking a little bit more tasty. LOVE IT. It covers snacks, appetizers, breakfast, meats, vegetables and desserts. It is not leaving my kitchen counter.

I am really enjoying this cookbook. The photos (of which there are many) are fantastic, the instructions are clear and concise, and the recipes are very, very good. Most of the recipes call for ingredients that most people will have on-hand and if not, aren't hard to find in any supermarket. This is an excellent book for those people who want to learn to cook, or for those of us who want to brush up on the basics.

Got it for my daughter and spent over 2 hours reading it myself before wrapping it. Nice addition to any cookbook library.

Best cookbook I have ever seen to date, highly recommend to anyone who wants a "practical" cookbook, one where you don't need to drive 20 miles to go buy 1 ingredient from a specialty shop. Everything in this book is simple and easy to cook, and the best part is there is a plethora of variations for every recipe for those who want to try different flavors.

This book has probably been the most influential book i have ever bought, it makes cooking seem simple and understandable. Mark Bittman has brought professional cooking, to everyone of all skill levels, and especially those who aspire to cook nice meals at home, but never had the confidence to make the attempt.

tldr; Buy this book yo it is the shiznit!

I love this book - it's very easy to follow, includes lots of pictures and helpful hints. My only complaint is that after about a year, the binding has separated and some pages are falling out... but I think this could happen with any large hard-cover book that you use often - so I haven't docked any stars for it.

Mark takes you through simple and real steps on getting food that is good for you on the plate for you by you. He shows you that you don't need to watch cooking shows and order out. Make the food yourself and eat better. Really good book Mark.
