THE ESSENTIAL NEW YORK TIMES COOK BOOK
I opened this book early this morning. I had made my French presse coffee, plumped the pillows, and as part of my morning ritual started reading . My coffee grew cold as I became completely engrossed in this highly personal, fascinating and beautiful record of America’s culinary past. The New York Times has published recipes for 150 . This is the cookbook for those who grew up in the kitchen with Craig Claiborne, for curious cooks who want to serve a nineteenth-century recipe to their friend, and for the new cook who needs a book that spells out all the basics. This cookbook will serve as a lifelong companion in your kitchen.
