Recipe books

  1. 1. Recipe Books Cookbooks or recipe books were created for cooks of all levels, from beginner to advance, amateur to professional. Within their pages are recipes to consult as reference and guide, listing all the ingredients needed, mentioning the cooking tools and equipment used, and outlining as detailed instructions as it can. New cuisines, historical facts and narratives are also featured in some good cookbooks. The contents of recipe books contents range from sweet to savory and vegetarian to all-meat. The writing style could be personal (based on the experience of the cook or celebrity), professional or both. The photographs of each ingredient, recipe and procedure would prove beneficial as well, especially to beginners not familiar with a specific technique, ingredient or look of a dish. It’s not just the beginner that benefits from recipe books. While the most advance cook or baker has recipes memorized through experience and daily cooking practice, they would also benefit from recipe books as a place to learn something new, get inspiration or a new idea, or simply to look up a classic dish as reference. Choosing Your Cookbooks Of the many being published today, which cookbook or recipe book would best suit your kitchen shelf? Here are some ideas to consider when browsing through your local bookstore or online: 1) Look for a cookbook with a range of recipes. Value for money is the recipe book that offers you more than a dozen useful recipes. Most should be kitchen tested so you know the recipes actually work.
  2. 2. 2) Get a general cookbook to serve as your culinary reference. These are the books that define cooking terms, introduce ingredients, and explain the techniques that go into specific dishes, meals, or menus. Examples include the Joy of Cooking by Irma Rombauer; Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child, Simone Beck, and Louisette Bertholle; How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman, and others. 3) Get something specialized and focused only on specific foods (cookies and cake ‘bibles,’), ingredients (all apple, cheese, vegetable books), techniques or method (baking, stewing, casserole), budget and experience. 4) Flip through the cookbook and see how it is relevant to you, what you wish to read, your time, lifestyle and budget. Read some of the recipes. Are the instructions clear and detailed? Do the recipes seem overly-time consuming? Are the recipes designed for beginners, intermediate, or advanced cooks? Do you like the way the author “talks” in the book and the way it’s arranged? Will your family like the dishes featured? 5) Cook like your favorite chef or food celebrity. If you like a chef or celebrity, most often he or she would have come out with a cookbook featuring their personal recipes, style of cooking, preferred ingredients, and writing style. 6) Other sources of recipes are available online with videos, feedback from other cooks or website readers, and almost always free. If you have your own clippings, personal collection, heirloom hand-me-down recipes, keep them in a binder with page protectors, folder or sturdy envelope. Eventually, this collection can be passed on to your family members as itself a heirloom piece.
