For people who have never had an appetite for the kitchen, this book is so wonderful! It tells you how to put your kitchen together, what basics you need and it's everything you can find at a mainstream grocery store as well as healthfood stores.
I have a bunch of cookbooks and it seems that even when you follow the directions to the last drop, it almost never seems to turn out right. I have not had that experience with this book AT ALL and the dishes I have tried are absolutely delicious. I never knew cooking without everything we are so used to (dairy and meat) could taste this good. You will be in for a treat with this one and I can't wait to buy copies for my friends!
