I bought this in the early 90s, when the whole "foodie" thing had recently happened in NYC. I would read this like a novel. Love it, even though I've only cooked a tiny fraction of the recipes. ( )

I bought this 10 years ago and still use it as a cooking reference, broken spine and all. Many of the classics add some ingredient or method that makes them extra delicious. There is also a healthy mix of non-traditional recipes (like cold avocado soup) that have become regular in my house. ( )

This is a classic cookbook that I recommend to any adult who is starting out in the kitchen. The recipes are somewhat complicated, involving lots of steps, but the results are phenomenal. Even novice chefs can produce gourmet results. ( )

My favorite cookbook. I am constantly refering to it for information and recipes. I only wish it had color photos to enhance what I am trying to make.... ( )

Underutilized. Oh, there's dozens of pages marked with recipes I want to try, but honestly, I don't get around to it. ( )
