19 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Marcy on Aug. 5 2007
Format: Hardcover
Originally a self-published book in 1931, and no less than nine revisions later, this thick volume of recipes (it's got to be at least 3 inches thick) is a great addition to anyone's cook book library.

But wait! This book is not merely just a collection of recipes- although with 4000 classic recipes and an additional 500 new ones, that would make it worth buying alone. No, this cook book stands heads and shoulders above the rest because its what I call a "teaching" cook book. It contains recipes for just about every dish or food category you can think of which are arranged in various sections throughout the book. Then, at the beginning of each chapter, there is a kind of introduction which goes into detail about that category. For example, the section on grains starts off with an almost encyclopedic explanation of the types of grains, their anatomy, how to combine them, and so on.

A handy, informative cook book with plenty of choices, there is sure to be something for everyone and even healthy eaters will find a great section on what makes up a healthy diet, how many calories you need, etc. Also recommend The Sixty-Second Motivator for readers who need more motivation to eat healthier and have trouble changing their diet habits.

Having the Betty Crocker and Fanny Farmer cookbooks on my shelf, I find the encyclopedic 3500 recipes in Joy of Cooking to be a helpful addition to my cookbooks. The tone is fun, the different categories are full of variations, and the classics are all there.

There are lots of great recipes, although I recommend that you take a look at the style of their layout before purchasing. Overall, from the dozen or so that I have prepared in the month of owning the book, there have been no duds or mistakes on my part. You can find a recipe for nearly any dish that you can think of preparing.

I have the first Joy of Cooking cook book and thought I should get the new one-am glad I did-as it is more than a cook book-any question you may have there seems to be an answer-I am passing the "old" book down to my son who always seems to have a cooking question.

Format: Hardcover
This is a book that is great for the novice to the advanced chef. There is information on techniques and how to solve problems. This book offers not only great recipes, but the basics to techniques for the novice. However, I would not get the 75th anniversary edition, there are numerous mistakes which cause some of the recipes to not come out correctly

PICK THIS ONE! Everything that I needed to look up, from simple to complex, was always found in The Joy of Cooking. The recipes are well explained, complete and work well. Everyone who cooks (or aspires to) should have a copy.

It is an excellent update to my original edition. Only downside........the print is extremely small! Need to use a magnifier to work with it in the kitchen.
