Great Food Made SimpleHere's the breakthrough one-stop cooking reference for today's generation of cooks! Nationally known cooking authority Mark Bittman shows you how to prepare great food for all occasions using simple techniques, fresh ingredients, and basic kitchen equipment. Just as important, How to Cook Everything takes a relaxed, straightforward approach to cooking, so you can enjoy yourself in the kitchen and still achieve outstanding results.Praise for How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman:"In his introduction to How to Cook Everything, Mark Bittman says, 'Anyone can cook, and most everyone should.' Now, hopefully everyone will -- this work is a rare achievement. Mark is in that pantheon of a few gifted cook/writers who make very, very good food simple and accessible. I read his recipes and my mouth waters. I read his directions and head for the kitchen. Bravo, Mark, for taking us away from take-out and back to the fun of food."-- Lynne Rossetto Kasper, host of the international public radio show "The Splendid Table with Lynne Rossetto Kasper""Mark Bittman is the best home cook I know, and How to Cook Everything is the best basic cookbook I've seen."-- Jean-Georges Vongerichten, award-winning chef/owner of Jean-Georges"Useful to the novice cook or the professional chef, How to Cook Everything is a tour de force cookbook by Mark Bittman. Mark lends his considerable knowledge and clear, concise writing style to explanations of techniques and quick, classic recipes. This is a complete, reliable cookbook."-- Jacques Pepin, chef, cookbook author, and host of his own PBS television series"Sometimes all the things that a particular person does best come together in a burst of synergy, and the result is truly marvelous. This book is just such an instance. Mark Bittman is not only the best home cook we know, he is also a born teacher, a gifted writer, and a canny kitchen tactician who combines great taste with eminent practicality. Put it all together and you have How to Cook Everything, a cookbook that will inspire American home cooks not only today but for years to come."-- John Willoughby and Chris Schlesinger, coauthors of License to Grill

I've had this for a few years (Thanks Santa) and have done more reading than cooking, my fault, probably a crime. I've renamed it How to Cook Nothing, but now that my wife is returning to work soon I'll be trying out many more recipes. I expect success. I already know the little food essays that dot...

Great book. Not a pretty cookbook, just practical and doable and full of recipes and techniques instead of purty, purty pics. Mark Bittman is the greatest for cutting down to the essentials of taste/technique. Loved all he did for NYT and continue to enjoy his online presence. Will say that a to...

5.0 How to Cook Everything: 2,000 Simple Recipes for Great Food
My absolute favorite cookbook of all time. Even if I don't end up using one of his recipes, I get so many good ideas from just browsing this tome. My only complaint is in the organization of the recipes. In the meat chapters, for instance, the beef chapter begins with about four "fundamental recipes...
