Excellent I have used this book for 3 years and gave it as a gift this Christmas. It is great for the beginner cook it tells you how to do everything! and as your skills increase there are still recipes to choose from. Read full review

My family and I LOVE this cook book! It has the best recipes that usually we have underhand and when we don't know what to make we just flip through the pages and we can find the recipe. It also has tips on how to set the table for formal get-togethers and what types of wines go into what glasses. Very educational and yummy. I would recommend this book to both new and experienced cooks.
