    The day I found out my grandmother was dying was the day I got this book.She was sick and we were both very hopeful that she would get better She was lying on the couch in the living room and asked me to boil her a potato I, being 19, had NO idea how to boil a potato But I did not want to bother her about it so I went into the kitchen and started up the pot of water.Not only did I ruin that cute little potato but I saw my grandmother lose it She came into the kitchen and saw the whole The day I found out my grandmother was dying was the day I got this book.She was sick and we were both very hopeful that she would get better She was lying on the couch in the living room and asked me to boil her a potato I, being 19, had NO idea how to boil a potato But I did not want to bother her about it so I went into the kitchen and started up the pot of water.Not only did I ruin that cute little potato but I saw my grandmother lose it She came into the kitchen and saw the whole potato not peeled or cut hanging out in the pot and lost it She started crying How can I leave you if you can t even boil a potato My grandfather happened to arrive home at that moment He did a big sigh when he heard and saw the commotion My poor frail grandma rolling around on the stool too weak to stand up even , throwing pans around as she was trying to find another pot to make her potato in He got her calmed down and fixed her another potato But before it was even boiled she made him go out to the store right this minute and buy me the joy of cooking.She knew that she would not always be in the kitchen with me to help me cook so she got me a GREAT back up.That is how I knew my grandmother wasn t going to get better and that I had better learn how to boil a potato.I love you grandmother

    The 1997 edition is infallible The pre 1997 editions are good if you want to can or pickle your own veg, cook opossum, and make aspic The fifth edition, ie the 75th Anniversary edition shown in the picture above, contains too much retro inspired nonsense and does not continue the practical and innovative approach laid out in the 1997 edition Basically, the 1997 edition took the heart of the Joy of Cooking, that is, that it is a book that contains all the recipes your average american cook nee The 1997 edition is infallible The pre 1997 editions are good if you want to can or pickle your own veg, cook opossum, and make aspic The fifth edition, ie the 75th Anniversary edition shown in the picture above, contains too much retro inspired nonsense and does not continue the practical and innovative approach laid out in the 1997 edition Basically, the 1997 edition took the heart of the Joy of Cooking, that is, that it is a book that contains all the recipes your average american cook needs, and updated it for the 1997 american palate added in asian and mexican foods removed casseroles made with mushroom soup, etc The first person narrative of the other editions was mostly removed The 75th anniversary editions does no further innovation, and instead adds in some of the older recipes and sections with limited practical use, in my opion , and adds a good bit of personal narrative back in If you re serious about cooking, find the 1997 edition, it will never let you down If you re interested in the evolution of american recipes from the perspective of the Becker family, the 75th anniversary edition is your book

    I have had my Joy of Cooking volume for many decades and it is showing its age and frailty I read heard several interviews with the Rombauer family members that have put together the new 2019 edition of this classic The book cover claims that this edition has revised over 4,000 recipes and added 600 new ones It is certainly bigger both in format and in weight I agree with the authors choice not to add photos of the recipes both for space consideration and because there is nothing that dates I have had my Joy of Cooking volume for many decades and it is showing its age and frailty I read heard several interviews with the Rombauer family members that have put together the new 2019 edition of this classic The book cover claims that this edition has revised over 4,000 recipes and added 600 new ones It is certainly bigger both in format and in weight I agree with the authors choice not to add photos of the recipes both for space consideration and because there is nothing that dates a cookbook quicker than a period photograph What I liked The indexing is better withchance to look up recipes by ingredients, ethnicity, or unusual requirements such as high altitude or gluten free There are manyethnic recipes and Asian cooking is better represented The section on tea, tea drinks and tea making has been expanded Accompanying beverages including wine have been expanded There ison nutrition andsuggested menus for events, holidays, etc I appreciate the additions to the Eggs section including Kuku Sabzi and souffl ed omelets My favorite discovery My previous edition has one classic recipe for brownies Brownies Cockaigne That one is included in the new edition but there is an additional one Fudgy Brownies , and I like it better Full disclosure I haven t bought this book it is merely a loan from our local library My cookbook shelf needs to shedthan the previous edition I own, if I am to make room for this one Should I go for the digital version Not sure Below, for anyone who is interested, is the extensive table of contents.Getting StartedNutrition and Food Safety Entertaining and Menus Streamlined Cooking Beverages Cocktails, Wine, and Beer Appetizers and Hors D Oeuvre Stocks and Soups Salads Sandwiches, Tacos, and Burritos Egg Dishes Fruits Vegetables Pasta, Noodles, and Dumplings Grains Shellfish FishPoultry and Wildfowl Meat Game and Exotic Meats Stuffings and Casseroles Savory Sauces, Salad Dressings, Marinades, and Seasoning Blends Breads and Coffee Cakes Pancakes, Waffles, Doughnuts, and Fritters Pies and Pastries Cakes and Cupcakes Cookies and Bars Icings, Fillings, Frostings, and Sweet Sauces Desserts Ice Cream and Frozen Desserts Candies and Confections Keeping and Storing Food Canning Jams, Jellies, and PreservesPickles Salting, Drying, and Fermenting Know Your Ingredients Cooking Methods and Techniques

    I would not consider this my everyday cookbook but the The Joy of Cooking is a definite must for anyone that takes their cooking seriously, enjoys spending a bit of time in the kitchen, and needs a good all purpose reference that covers everything from emergency substitutions to complete banquet spreads.What do I like most about The Joy of Cooking It is fairly encyclopedic, covering about as broad a range of cooking topics as it can while most of the recipes are from the Western tradition, i I would not consider this my everyday cookbook but the The Joy of Cooking is a definite must for anyone that takes their cooking seriously, enjoys spending a bit of time in the kitchen, and needs a good all purpose reference that covers everything from emergency substitutions to complete banquet spreads.What do I like most about The Joy of Cooking It is fairly encyclopedic, covering about as broad a range of cooking topics as it can while most of the recipes are from the Western tradition, it also dips into some less traditional preparations e.g., ceviche The book does not assume that you know anything about cooking not sure what a dash is You can look up an explanation for that What s the difference between a filet and a cutlet It explains that, too HINT they re basically synonymous It has a great index, is organized well, and has recipes to cover almost any occasion and varying degrees of culinary sophistication.What don t I like about The Joy of Cooking It s encyclopedic nature can be a little intimidating sometimes If you already have a good idea of what you want to make, there s a good chance that you ll find a great recipe if you re looking for ideas though, the text may overwhelm you Speaking of text the pictures are all illustrations Granted, they re good illustrations but I tend to prefer photos in my cookbooks helps me decide what to try next.One last point about The Joy of Cooking I would recommend it to everyone except vegetarians The book assumes an omnivore s diet so if you eschew the animals in your diet, I would estimate that greater than half of these recipes would not appeal to you

    In their attempt to modernize the book, the authors omitted many recipes and techniques that are still relevant Where is Sole Florentine, for heavens sake And while not many families routinely can or freeze food as a winter survival strategy, there are still times when I would like to know how to do it when my CSA gives mecorn than we can manage, or when local strawberries are beautiful, fresh, plentiful, and cheap The lack of ice cream recipes is frustrating, especially given that so In their attempt to modernize the book, the authors omitted many recipes and techniques that are still relevant Where is Sole Florentine, for heavens sake And while not many families routinely can or freeze food as a winter survival strategy, there are still times when I would like to know how to do it when my CSA gives mecorn than we can manage, or when local strawberries are beautiful, fresh, plentiful, and cheap The lack of ice cream recipes is frustrating, especially given that so many manufacturers are making good quality electric powered ice cream makers.On the other hand, there are lots of new recipes that reflect the increasing influx of immigrant culture and food into America.I d say, Definitely buy this book, but don t chuck your old editions of Joy just yet You re going to need both

    For Christmas, I decided I was going to have Japanese strawberry shortcake as in a sponge cake filled with strawberries and cream I needed a basic sponge cake recipe and couldn t find one anywhere, not even in my usual high altitude baking bible, Pie in the Sky, nor in the other book I had, The Best Recipe It was December 24th, the only other recipe I d found was online from New Mexico but which I did not trust it asked me to beat the eggs until stiff, a HUGE no no at high altitude Almost For Christmas, I decided I was going to have Japanese strawberry shortcake as in a sponge cake filled with strawberries and cream I needed a basic sponge cake recipe and couldn t find one anywhere, not even in my usual high altitude baking bible, Pie in the Sky, nor in the other book I had, The Best Recipe It was December 24th, the only other recipe I d found was online from New Mexico but which I did not trust it asked me to beat the eggs until stiff, a HUGE no no at high altitude Almost at the end of my rope, it suddenly occurred to me to try this book.And I found it High altitude Sponge Cake, on page 750 I now have a beautiful Japanese strawberry shortcake in the fridge chilling until dinner Christmas Eve is saved, thanks to Joy of Cooking

    I don t know why it took so long for me to include this very worthy book to my Goodreads Library This is my second copy The first, a paperback, became so tattered and worn that my son presented this valued edition as a gift I have been cooking forthan forty years, but continue to return to this book for ideas, information and special recipes On many occasions I search for new ways to prepare foods and will find the ideal formula for preparation Frequently I will tweak the recipe in I don t know why it took so long for me to include this very worthy book to my Goodreads Library This is my second copy The first, a paperback, became so tattered and worn that my son presented this valued edition as a gift I have been cooking forthan forty years, but continue to return to this book for ideas, information and special recipes On many occasions I search for new ways to prepare foods and will find the ideal formula for preparation Frequently I will tweak the recipe in order to please the palates of my diners, butJOYhas rarely failed to please me.It is important to note here that this is farthan a recipe book It is possible to sit down and read this hefty tome for information and sheer enjoyment Aside from the wealth of sections for appetizers, through to a huge array of desserts, there are sections describing a multitude of food facts One can learn about different grains, exotic fruits and vegetables and the preparation and significance of many ethnic foods Historical and geograpical factors are also included.I would recommend this above all other cookbooks for both novice and experienced food preparers A perfect engagement gift

    I enjoyed flipping through this, and I made a pretty good dinner ALL BY MYSELF what an achievement right The Joy of Cooking just has so much depth to it, with hundreds of recipes, add ons, possible amendments, and very interesting segments on cuts of meat, best way to use grains, and well thought out menus it s the OG of cookbooks for a reason, and in my eyes the best cookbook of all time.
