This comprehensive compendium of recipes, techniques, menus, and cooking advice compiled by the director of the famed Good Housekeeping Test Kitchens, belongs on every kitchen bookshelf. For more than a century, the Good Housekeeping name has stood for quality. And with this dazzling, 832-page book, the tradition continues. Whether you are a novice in the kitchen or an expert chef, this book’s 1,500 recipes and 600 color photographs make it one that you’ll turn to again and again. All the recipes are easy-to-read and simple to follow, and they’re triple-tested by Good Housekeeping, too. Here are best-ever versions of time honored classics that every family loves, such as hearty Spaghetti and Meatballs, as well as the new tastes of today--from Thai Beef with Basil to Molten Chocolate Cake. The 24 chapters cover everything from soups to sandwiches to desserts, and 100 expert tip boxes present secrets of America’s best chefs and cooking teachers.
