Marion Cunningham's 150 recipes are simple, easy to master written in clear, straightforward language. She addresses the needs and concerns of beginning cooks: how to shop, how to determine the quality of ingredients, how to store fresh produce and to ripen fruits, what basic kitchen utensils to use, and how not to waste food.
Learning to Cook stresses the importance of thinking ahead--not just one recipe at a time. Today's dinner can be recycled into a lunch for tomorrow, leftover polenta topped with Parmesan becomes a supper dish, leftovers can make an omelet filling, a pasta garnish, or stuffing for a baked potato, and homemade biscuits can be transformed into shortcake. This book takes fear out of frying, baking, roasting and stewing and helps beginners cook their way toward culinary success.
