If your answers to these questions are "yes," then GET COOKING is for you. GET COOKING is the first in a series of cookbooks for beginners of all ages from Mollie Katzen, the bestselling author of The Moosewood Cookbook and The Enchanted Broccoli Forest. Here are 150 foolproof , basic recipes for soups, homemade pasta, roast chicken, burgers, vegan specialities, chocolate chip cookies-and more-that anyone can enjoy making, no matter how inexperienced in the kitchen. GET COOKING will be accompanied by the launch of a companion website that will offer cooking lessons via a series of state-of-the-art cooking videos. These videos will be instructive and entertaining, illustrating everything from knife-sharpening to tofu-grilling (and many, many chocolate pudding variations)"--Provided by publisher.

Worth a Read

I picked up this cookbook because of its non-intimidating size and its aim to get new cooks started. Cookbooks that focus on simplicity are right at my level. This cookbook struck the balance quite well, Mollie Katzen gives good, clear instructions without assuming too much. She provides suggestions for additions or extra complexity alongside the basic recipe for more advanced chefs. The range of recipes was good too - plenty for both vegetarians and omnivores.
