The Joy of CookingSince its original publication Joy of Cooking has been the most authoritative cookbook in America the one upon which millions of cooks have confidently relied for than sixty five years It's the book your grandmother and mother probably learned to cook from the book you gave your sister when she got married This the first revision in than twenty years is better than ever Here's why Every chapter has been rethought with an emphasis on freshness convenience and healthAll the recipes have been reconceived and tested with an eye to modern taste and the cooking knowledge imparted with each subject enriched to the point where everyone from a beginning to an experienced cook will feel completely supportedThe new Joy continues the vision of American cooking that began with the first edition of Joy It is still the book you can turn to for perfect Beef Wellington and Baked Macaroni and Cheese It's also the book where you can now find Turkey on the Grill Spicy Peanut Sesame Noodles and vegetarian mealsThe new Joy provides thorough descriptions of ingredients from the familiar to the most exotic For instance almost all the varieties of apples grown domestically a. I have had my Joy of Cooking volume for many decades and it is showing its age and frailty I readheard 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 4000 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 uicker than a period photograph What I liked The indexing is better with chance to look up recipes by ingredients ethnicity or unusual reuirements such as high altitude or gluten free There are many ethnic 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 is on nutrition and suggested menus for events holidays etc I appreciate the additions to the “Eggs” section including Kuku Sabzi and souffléed 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 betterFull disclosure I haven’t bought this book; it is merely a loan from our local library My cookbook shelf needs to shed than 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 contentsGetting 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 Techniues

In their attempt to modernize the book the authors omitted many recipes and techniues 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 me corn 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 uality electric powered ice cream makersOn the other hand there are lots of new recipes that reflect the increasing influx of immigrant culture and food into AmericaI'd say Definitely buy this book but don't chuck your old editions of Joy just yet You're going to need both
