Here’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

Amazon.com ReviewMark Bittman, award-winning author of such fundamental books as Fish and Leafy Greens and food columnist for the New York Times (“The Minimalist”), has turned in what has to be the weightiest tome of the year. There are more than 900 pages in this sucker–over 1,500 recipes! This isn’t just the big top of cookbooks: it’s the entire three-ring circus. This isn’t just how to cook everything: it’s how to cook everything you have ever wanted to have in your mouth. And then some.

Bittman starts with Roasted Buttered Nuts and Real Buttered Popcorn, and moves right along, section by section, from the likes of Black Bean Soup (eight different ways), to Beet and Fennel Salad, to Mussels (Portuguese-style over Pasta), to Cream Scones–and he hasn’t even reached seafood, poultry, meat, or vegetables yet, let alone desserts. There are 23 sections in this cookbook (!) that reflect directly on the how-to of cooking, be that equipment, technique, or recipe.

Every inch of the way the reader finds Bittman’s calm, helpful, encouraging voice. “Anyone can cook,” he says at the beginning, “and most everyone should.” More than a few college kids are going to head off to their first apartments with Bittman’s book under arm. More than a few marriages will benefit with this book on the shelf. And anyone who loves cooking and the sound of a great food voice is going to enjoy letting this book fall open where it may. No matter what the page, it’s bound to be a tasty and rewarding experience. –Schuyler Ingle
