9780688080747: Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook

The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Cookbook was an instant classic when it appeared in 1980. Now, over a million copies later, comes this revised and expanded edition for novice and experienced cook alike. Here, from the same famous Good Housekeeping Institute's kitchens, is a wealth of information for today's modem cook -- from microwave cooking to fast and easy menus for all occasions, time-saving shopping and preparation tips and new nutritional data.

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.

Other outstanding features include:

Complete menus for entertaining
A chapter devoted to microwave cooking: more than 70 new recipes, plus illustrated methods and techniques
A full-color photo gallery of over 900 dishes
Calorie counts and nutritional information for each recipe
An illustrated dictionary of herbs and spices, as well as a comprehensive glossary of food and cooking terms
Critical facts about different kinds of food, cooking times, cutting and carving directions, and storage procedures
