The go-to book for all of us cooking nuts . I treasure my old editions, too.

I find The Joy of Cooking to be an invaluable reference guide particularly with ingredients and techniques. Generally when I want to try a new recipe I refer to the Joy of Cooking first to see the basic ingredients and techniques needed even if I am using a recipe I found online.

The recipes are easy to follow once you get used to the ingredients being inline with the instructions instead of at the top. One thing you do have to watch out for is that you have to read the entire recipe because sometimes the last part of a recipe will call for another recipe found elsewhere in the book.

Still, this is an excellent reference and the information is very well written and easy to follow. ( )

This is the second version of the book that I own and while I haven't tested as many recipes as my 1997 copy, I still think its a must have for any cook. ( )

Absolutely indispensable, a must-have for absolutely anyone with even just a pot in their kitchen. A recipe for almost anything, and they are easy to follow, no matter the complexity (or simplicity) of the recipe.

This is my third version/copy of the book, I love it. ( )

Love this cookbook. If it were the only cookbook I could have, I would never feel deprived. ( )
