Cookbook review: Get Cooking
Get Cooking is a great book for beginner cooks. Mind you, it's pretty solidly just for beginners. I personally recommend getting an all-purpose cookbook (like The Joy of Cooking) because it's great for all levels of cooks--you can continue using it for years, even after you know what you're doing. A book strictly for beginners, like this one, won't be as useful after the fact.
But everyone has to start somewhere, right? All the recipes in this book are easy and quick--no bizarre ingredients, no three-page-long list of instructions, and everything looks pretty delicious. If you are a beginner, check out a copy from your local library and see what you think.
