What was the Best Cookbook you ever purchased/borrowed and why?
Mine was “The Cook’s Illustrated Guide To Grilling And Barbecue: A Practical Guide for the Outdoor Cook”. I grilled the BEST steak using their instructions. I checked it out from the local library but I plan on purchasing it later.
I didn’t know how to cook at all when I started my new career as a stay-at-home mom. I had to learn fast, and so I watched as much of Alton Brown’s Good Eats as I could. I also bought his book (well, all three of them). While they may not be fancy gourmet foods, they have all been tasty recipes, and they are reliable and straightforward.
I like that he explains how to use different tools and different methods for cooking and baking. Knowing the reasons that he included certain ingredients or steps makes it much easier to substitute or modify a recipe, and I love that he includes a list of the needed “hardware” such as a cooling rack, stand mixer, or non-metallic mixing bowl for a recipe. Having the books around makes me much more confident in the kitchen and I have learned so much from them.
