View all copies of this ISBN edition:

"Hot Dish" is a practical and humorous survival guide for the kitchen challenged. While specifically written for young men, its simple instruction in rudimentary boiling, frying, baking, etc. will take any raw beginner to at least a half-baked one! By the end of chapter one any starving cooking idiot will have learned enough to avoid going to bed hungry. All the rest is gravy.

"Hot Dish" is designed to be displayed as a refrigerator magnet. This is one pin-up that's more than just a pretty face.

From the Author:

I wrote this book as a solution to several cooking problems observed when our kids went to college. Cooking directions in regular cookbooks were too complicated, presuming knowlege not possessed by the reader. Also, whatever directions there were got lost in the general chaos of multiple room-mate living. "Hot Dish" is (1)absolutely basic and (2)magnetized for hanging on the regrigerator.

From the Inside Flap:

My hope in writing this book is that someone who knows little or nothing about food preparation will not only learn some good, quick ways to have better food, but will also develope solid cooking skills. I do not include many recipes because tons of recipe books are available once you learn how to read them. You will find enough here to become a decent cook. Where you go from there is up to you. Anyway, skills build on each other as the book goes along, so--if you don't know much about geography (of the kitchen, anyway), turn the page and get started.
