“If a crazed person stood in my kitchen and insisted I keep just one cookbook in my collection, it would be this one. It is practical, approachable, enjoyably readable, and, most important where a cookbook is concerned, absolutely delicious. Beginning and experienced cooks alike will find something to love and appreciate about this book. So please—forget The Joy of Cooking and get this instead!”—Pamela, Grass Roots Books & Music, Corvallis. Buy How to Cook Everything from Grass Roots.
Pamela also recommends: The Food Matters Cookbook: 500 Revolutionary Recipes for Better Living by Mark Bittman. “Have no fear: butter, salt, and sugar will always be good friends of mine. It has occurred to me, however, that I am not, in fact, impervious to their long-term effects, and that I sure as heck need to attempt a healthier diet, at least some of the time. Since Mark Bittman’s comprehensive cooking tome How to Cook Everything is one of my favorite cookbooks ever, I decided to turn to him once again. I am not disappointed. Bittman continues to bring accessible and easily modifiable recipes to my kitchen, and the results are delicious, healthy, and better for the planet.” Buy The Food Matters Cookbook from Grass Roots.
