Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
James Beard was a talented chef, if you did not already know. If you haven't picked up any of his cookbooks, you're doing yourself an injustice. Personally, I think anyone who cooks should have a copy of The James Beard Cookbook. It's a comprehensive cookbook that covers every category possible and offers more tips than you could ever imagine.
The James Beard Cookbook is ideal for beginners, as it covers the basics like cooking an egg, which anyone should be able to do. It covers measurements, the equipment you should have in your kitchen, and important terminology. It goes into harder cooking techniques, too, such as cooking crepes or squabs. You'll find recipes for everything: meats, vegetables, desserts, appetizers, soups, breads, salads, fruits, seafood, dressings, and sauces.
