Exciting new four-color photographs and more than 5,000 illustrations take you step by step through every phase of the cooking experience, demonstrating such techniques as measuring, dicing, julienning, grat-ing, beating, and folding. Over 1,400 recipes -- from appetizers and soups to eggs and pasta, from meat and poultry to sandwiches and breads, from sauces and candy to desserts and beverages -- have been triple-tested by Good Housekeeping for infallibility, ease, good taste and value.
Good Housekeeping recipes are always perfectly clear, taking the guesswork out of the kitchen. Instructions give at least two ways to determine the doneness of every dish, explain in detail all crucial techniques, give exact sizes and measurements, eliminate unnecessary steps, and supply overall preparation times for every recipe.
