I received a copy of James Beard’s American Cookery. This cookbook is enormous and contains recipes for just about anything you can imagine. the recipes are all easy to understand. The only two things this cookbook is missing to make it perfect are some pictures and what the cooking and prep time is for each dish. This cookbook is a must have for anyone who loves cookbooks, or anyone who needs access to a lot of recipes in one place that doesn’t want a lot of cookbooks.

James Beard was the “dean of American cookery” (New York Times), and he put practically everything he learned about cooking into this single magnificent–now classic–cookbook. JAMES BEARD’S AMERICAN COOKERY includes more than fifteen hundred of his favorite and most successful recipes, as well as advice on dozens of cooking questions, from choosing meats and vegetables to preserving fruit and making real cheeseburgers. A celebration of the roots of cooking in the American style, this repackaged edition features the original text and color illustrations, and a new foreword by Tom Colicchio. Like Mastering the Art of French Cooking and The Joy of Cooking, it is a standard reference no kitchen is complete without.

More like my kind of cookbook than the two your father chose for me–rather have text than loose-leaf or KISS writing.
