5.0 out of 5 stars Best one yet Dec 3 2002
By Stacy
I got this book because I love one of this author's other indispensable books, the New Food Lover's Companion. Whereas I use the latter for everything from good conversation fodder to look up menu terms, the Tiptionary, for me, a "cook's" book, tailor-made for those who love to cook. On the other hand, I think it would be great for people who don't love to cook, as it shows you how to navigate through almost any problem effortlessly. This Tiptionary has so many solutions for cooking questions big and small. For example, I finally learned how to prepare artichokes correctly (the book even has the technique for eating them, although I knew that). Oh, and so much, much more. I highly recommend this book and wouldn't give it up for anything.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "How-To" Manual For The Kitchen Nov. 23 2002
Well, I got this book for my wife for her birthday, but I think I've referred to it as often as she has (we both like to cook). It has become indispensable for both of us because it always seems to have the answer to some cooking problem that, before, we would have muddled through on our own. There is so much information in this fat, friendly book that, so far, there hasn't been anything we needed to know that we couldn't find an answer to (now we know why our low-calorie muffins and biscuits always taste like hockey pucks--it is because there's no fat in them, and fat tenderizes baked goods.) My wife calls Sharon Tyler Herbst the "Dear Abby" of the kitchen and, as much as I hate to admit that she's right (again), I have to agree with her!

5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S LIKE HAVING "MOM" IN YOUR KITCHEN Nov. 22 2002
By A Customer
Well, I've always been a pretty good cook (or so I'm told) but I have to say I keep finding answers in this book to questions I didn't even know I had! Someone gave me a bunch of pomegranates recently--too messy to bother with, I thought. Then I checked the Tiptionary and found out not only how to open and seed them (without getting stains all over the place!) but what to do with them. Huzzah! Since the pomegranate "incident" I find myself reaching for this book often--it contains so many solutions to so many dilemmas. It's like having a pro (or a Mom who's a good cook) there with advice. I love this book and plan to give loads of copies as gifts during the holidays. Thank you, Sharon Tyler Herbst!
