REVIEW OF AMERICAN COOKERY BY JAMES BEARD

James Beard's American CookeryThe Holiday season is just around the corner and you may be looking for that special meal to serve your family or friends. Let me introduce you to James Beard's American Cookery. The book contains a smorgasbord of recipes that will entice the most pickiest eaters. The book includes more than fifteen hundred of the author's favorite and most successful recipes, as well as advice on dozens of cooking questions, from choosing meats and vegetables to preserving fruit and making real cheeseburgers. A celebration of the roots of cooking in the American style.


My Thoughts-

My mom has always been looking for new and interesting recipes to make and share with our family. There are so many recipes to choose from and the preparation directions are very clear and easy to understand. I love cookies,so we decided to try the Crinkle Cookie recipe on page 714. Boy were they good and easy to make. They were devoured up quickly and no crumbs were left behind. Throughout the book there are little tidbits that talk about the history of the recipe or the food in it. So if you have that family member who loves to cook, get them a copy of the book and they will not be disappointed.

THE COOKIES WERE MOIST AND DELICIOUS.
