If you know someone who is ready to make the trip down the aisle, the Betty Crocker Cookbook Newlywed Edition would make a welcome and thoughtful bridal shower or wedding gift. This book, jam-packed with cooking and entertaining basics, is ideal for those who are just getting started in the kitchen (as well as those with experience) and will make a gift they'll reach for through the years.
Not only does this book serve as a terrific tutorial, it's a classic, modernized. This edition is the basic Betty Crocker Cookbook and includes its biggest update in 60 years. Aside from terrific recipes, what could be more helpful to someone just starting out in the kitchen than an introductory guide to equipment, shopping strategies, pantry staples and food safety? You'll find it all here.
Inside this hefty book are 1,500 recipes (and almost as many glossy photos), along with countless step-by-step tips for culinary adventures from how to caramelize creme brulee to how to make shaken cocktails (including the art of making a citrus twist) to removing lobster meat and brewing good coffee. The recipient of this cookbook likely will turn to it as a trusted source for years to come.
Aside from flipping to a page within the book to get a recipe for something like chicken pot pie, readers will find brief guides that can help plan late-night romantic dinners, appetizers and cocktails to serve at parties, as well as help for the mother of all meals: Thanksgiving dinner. In fact, practically every page in the book has some type of helpful advice or brief details about a certain technique, and each category is introduced by a "basics" overview.
