I do know how to cook,but I do not like to. The only reason to cook is to feed my family. I find basic American food to be too high in fat, salt, sugars and basically things that are bad for you. I also think a lot of it is pretty flat and tasteless. ( I love ethnic foods best.) This book is pretty much European in flavor and technique, but I do have to watch the salt and fat content of the recipes. I do consider it a GO TO BOOK for basic cooking, if I am stumped for what to bring to a gathering or party this and the sister book NEW CLASSICS are the books I read. I think they will save Thanksgiving this year. I reference it a lot. I consider it a great book to give to a new bride.

Yes I am using it for my THANKSGIVING TURKEY.

This book and the ORIGINAL CLASSICS book are my GO TO COOKBOOK for basic American cooking. I often have to bring dishes to work potlucks and I usually pick a dish from these books and they are usually received well. I like this book a little better because the flavors are more ethnic and adventuresome. Many of the recipes are from Asian, Hispanic, African, Indian cultures along with other experimental American cuisine. The flavors are more experimental and exciting. Great gift to a new bride or a novice cook who wants to expand their pallet.

One thought on “Cook books to the rescue of THANKSGIVING

  1. Your podcast about Thanksgiving was great, Nonnie. I had a turkey diaster too. The instructions on the bag said the turkey breast was supposed to be done in 1 and 1/2 hours with the meat thermometer at 160 degrees. Well, my meat thermometer says poultry should be cooked until it reaches 180 degrees, which took a total of 3 and 1/2 hours. It was tricky with the other side dishes I had planned but, like yours, all worked out well. I thought my turkey would be dry but it wasn’t, which really surprised me. Thanks for all the turkey recipes too. I’m so glad you had a wonderful thanksgiving with your family.
