Off to Market Recap: Beginner Cookbook

Tomorrow I am taking my girlfriend Katie to lunch to celebrate her birthday. Since learning to cook is her new hobby, I want to give her a cookbook as a present. She has a stunning state of the art kitchen that sits lonely and sadly unused... until now! With the help of her new cookbook she should be able to work her way around the kitchen comfortably. You searched the web for the best beginner cookbook and saved the books in the Yum Market with the tag of Beginner Cookbook. There was a great list of interesting and informative cookbooks. However I can only choose one: How To Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. LizaToad found this book, which is also a favorite of YumSugar's, and it is really basic, encouraging, and positive. Thanks to all of those who participated! I totally appreciate your help and I know my friend will be super stoked when she sees the gift. To learn how to add your yummy stuff to the Yum Market, read geeksugar's explanation.

What a great pick, I do love this book! Mark Bittman is one of my favorite celebrity chefs. His show on PBS where he cooks with world-famous chefs and then makes his own homemade dish is fantastic!

I have this book! I love that he keeps things simple. He is a minamalist when it comes to food, which is, I think, the was most people cook these days. Also, the sections on beand and fish are extensive, which is great because we are all trying to eat more of those things. Its a great book, and it is priced right as well.
