This review is from: "Family Circle" Cookery Encyclopedia (Hardcover)
I bought this book at the time of its original publication. I have an entire wall shelf of cookbooks old and new and this one is a big favourite. Thankfully, I was able to find it again through Amazon's marketplace, as so many friends have asked me where to get it. This book is an A-Z, pictorially superb, wonderful recipes and, along each side of every page is a column of information on the different ingredients, herbs, fruit, vegetables, etc. that are contained therein. There are sections on particular recipes like chutneys, for example. I couldn't recommend this book enough. I'm a cookbook addict and I rate this in my top five. Don't be put off by the title because this book is the culmination of the best from a very popular magazine in its time. But don't think this book is old-fashioned, it is completely up to date. Thanks to Amazon's website, these gems can be found again. Highly recommended.
