Editorial Reviews

Bittman's How To Cook Everything , originally published in 1998, became an almost instant classic and has sold close to two million copies. This new edition has been reorganized and includes 500 new recipes and many more step-by-step illustrations. Each chapter now opens with essential recipes" that should be in every cook's repertoire, and there are dozens of new charts and lists throughout. Vegetarian recipes are marked with a special icon, and quick recipes-Bittman also writes "The Minimalist" column for the New York Times -and those that can be made ahead are similarly denoted; prep times are also given for all recipes. Since he wrote the first edition, Bittman has published The Best Recipes in the World and How To Cook Everything Vegetarian ; in this tenth anniversary edition, there are more recipes from cuisines around the world and more vegetarian recipes than in the original. Valuable as both a reference and a cookbook, this is an essential purchase. ( Library Journal, September 15, 2008)'aǪthe best-value all-in-one volume available? even with more of everything to cook, this massive tome is navigable. Whether the first edition is on their shelves or not, home cooks of all skill levels will want to get this one.' ( Publishers Weekly, September 1, 2008) "
