Best Beginner's Guide Ever! :D,
This review is from: The Classic 1000 Beginners' Recipes (Paperback)
Having had this book for a little under 2 weeks now I can say that its going to take me at least a year to get through all the recipes :P
It is really crammed. 1000's of recipes ranging in difficulty of really easy, to seemingly quite advanced.
However, all are described in a down to earth fashion allowing the absolute newbie to create wonderful food!
At the beginning and end of the book there are sections with detailed explanations on most culinary equipment, food types and even diagrams showing you how to correctly chop or prepare food types. These are especially useful if you have no idea what you are doing :P
I would highly recommend this book to anyone, be they; Very new to cooking or just wanting to extend their cooking library :D
