5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent source
This book has lots and lots of pictures and loads of information on a large selection of herbs and spices.Some of them are non-traditional...which in my opinion only add to its value.There are a few reciepes, but this isn't really a cook book...it's a reference book for ideas.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
One of the most detailed and enthralling books on cooking I've read in some time.Excellent graphics, descriptions, and infinitely useful

5-0 out of 5 stars Only book you need on herbs and spices
`herbs & spices, the cook's reference' is the latest of eight different books on either herbs or spices by noted culinary editor and author, Jill Norman, one of the more influential disciples of the great English culinary writer, Elizabeth David, who contributed two books of her own to this subject.

5-0 out of 5 stars Encyclopedic, simple, advanced
Echoing so many other rave reviews, I have to say this is one of the most exciting cookbooks I've hefted (and it is hefty!) in a long time. It seems like nearly everything that I've eaten in Italy or seen on an Italian menu or read in another Italian cookbook has a straightforward, canonical recipe in this tome. It was like discovery, uncovering secrets again and again. I was breathless turning pages in my favorites sections, and kept returning to the book for days, unable to pull myself away.
5-0 out of 5 stars A truly great book
There are a great many things to like about this book and very little if anything to dislike.

Editorial Review

With more than 3,000 entries on every aspect of wine from vine pests to specific grapes, this hefty tome has something for both the seasoned connoisseur and novice alike. Edited by one of today's premier wine columnists, the work covers all aspects of wine, travelling back in time to early Greece to examine wine's role in Dionysian revels, then returning to today's wine centers to explore all aspects of wine appreciation. A full third of the book is dedicated to specific wines and wine-producing regions. All those technical terms you've heard and puzzled over at tastings are clearly explained, making this the perfect reference for newcomers to the world of oenology.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Wine Book.....EVER
This tome is simply the best reference for professionals, amateurs and students on the subject of wine. The 3rd edition is updated with additional entries and new statistics, and better maps.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thank Goodness for This Book
I use the Oxford Companion constantly!Wine terms and references can be a bit confusing at times and that's where this book comes in.This book is organized in alphabetical order so if you see a wine related term or word that needs some splain' just refer to The Oxford Companion to Wine.
4-0 out of 5 stars Refer back to it often
If you're into wine, or into learning about it, then this book does well to supplement another perhaps smaller, more specialized book.It doesn't necessarily deal at length with nuances of individual grapes, or how to develop a thorough tasting method.It's very useful when you come across a wine term you won't find in Webster's or want to know what the deal is with grafting, etc.I don't give it a 5 because I think, considering it's namesake and already generous size, they could have gone into more detail on some of the world's lesser-known but up-and-coming varietals at the expense of a few dozen more pages.But still a very good book to have if you want to fill your mind, or just like reading encyclopedias cover to cover. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love It
I have three wine books, and this is the one I turn to the most. Granted, I don't have an atlas, and I am very new to the world of wine; nevertheless, this book is not only packed with information, it is an engaging and pleasurable read.
5-0 out of 5 stars Fun, useful and amazingly accurate
Karen MacNeil's Wine Bible is so ambitious that it seems almost impossible for it to succeed. This book is first of all an encyclopedia, so it sets out to be comprehensive and it succeeds. Almost every bit of knowledge that isn't about a particular vintage can be found here. Remarkably, for an encyclopedia, many of theentries are quite detailed. I was particularly impressed by the section on Austrian and Italian wines (I've spent a fair amount of time in both countries).
5-0 out of 5 stars One of a kind
After having reviewed a number of other books on the subject of wine, this publication takes the understanding of wine to a level easily understood by all.I have it in my kitchen for quick reference and use it for futures purchases as well as a quick understanding as to where the wine and grapes utilized in the wine came from.Maps and diagrams in the text are crystal clear and the text is written for easy understanding.This is a book I simply can't do without.Matter of fact, I have a copy in our Chicago home as well as our Florida home because it is that important to our wine purchases as well as understanding the history of wine and from whence it comes.It is truly best of breed. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Sublime!
This cookbook is amazing.The author is a genius on how to get foods that are equal to or better than their egg-and-dairy counterparts. Love it love it love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars I've got more vengeance than you can shake a stick at
When I first checked this book out from the library I did something that I've never done with a cookbook before--I sat down and just read it. The author is so entertaining, witty, and engaging that I just liked reading the recipe descriptions, punk points, tips from Fizzle the cat, and litte vignettes that are woven into the book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous!!!
Although not a Vegan, I highly recommend this book to everyone and anyone. First, whether or not you are vegan, I am certain that several recipes from this book will become favorites of yours as they did for me. In addition, this book would have stood on its own as a book of stories. If you want to laugh out loud as I did while reading this book on the bus on my way to work, simply check out the stories written in the introduction, before each section and preceding each recipe as well as Ms. Moskowitz' punk points and 'Fizzle Says:' paragraphs. Great recipes for every meal of the day and scrumptious desserts for any time. No matter what your age,gender, musical inclinations or dietary preferences, this is a cookbook for all.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Little Book
I have used this and the previous edition for many years working in a country club.I just bought three of these for friends who have enjoyed my findings and got a kick out of my constant referring to my "bible" on food.If you are really interested in what things are made up of and where they originated, as well as some true tips for ease in food preparation this book is a wonder.These make 6 books of these purchased and it is one of those treasures that I must pass on to like minded freinds as a gift!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book!
I am a college student and as I get older, I have started to realize my love of fine foods. One problem is, however, that when I hear food terms, I don't always know what they mean. This is where this book comes in. This has to be the most comprehensive book on food terms. It is great and really does a good job defining almost anything that you may come across. Also, the apendix is wonderful; from cooking times to diagrams of cuts of meat, it alone is a valuble tool. This is a great reference book for anyone who enjoys food. ... Read more

This cookbook is the best in my collection - and I have a lot!! The instructions are clear and the pictures are great!

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible!
I tried her honey-acorn pie and it came out HORRIBLE!!! I had to re-bake the pie for more than 50 minutes and the pie filling is tasteless andtoo salty....her recipes are too tedious and never seem to produce good results...and I'm somebody who bakes a lot. Now, Julia Child on the other hand has some WONDERFUL recipes that NEVER fail!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best one yet!
I have a lot of Martha's books and DVD's, but this book is by far the best one for baking, it has everything and anything you could want.I have made many recipes from this book already, and purchased another one for a gift. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A little bit newer desired
When I was first married, in 1966, I received a Betty Crocker cookbook that I wore out through so much use. I bought a newer version but didn't like it as much as my older one. I was trying to duplicate the older one when I bought this one. I think was trying to find one that was published a little later than this one. I don't really like the way the index is set up in this one but I do appreciate the good amount of basic information provided for a new cook.

4-0 out of 5 stars A "must have", but...
Does contain very helpful information for the beginning cook left out of many "general" cookbooks. All the recipes turn out well, unlike recipes in some other cookbooks that seem like nobody ever tried before publishing them. Good for building confidence in a new cook.
5-0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong with the original!
My grandmother used this cookbook religiously for years and through it, taught me to love cooking and baking. Her original book was lost over the years, so I was delighted to get this version. It's absolutely perfect and so many recipes bring back fond memories. The recipes are simple and basic enough that I can share them with my 5-year-old daughter. We love the blueberry muffins and my husband raves about the pineapple upside down cake. Still my favorite cookbook! Thanks Betty! :) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars ... and then came the Book of Cheese
From Quebec's Chaput Vacherin Mont d'Or to Ireland's Ardrahan and Roomano of Holland to Switzerland's Sbrinz, Cheese - A Connoisseur's Guide to the World's Best by Max McCalman and David Gibbons is a sumptuous feast for mind and eye to 200 of the world's finest cheeses. Listen to what McCalman has to say about Epoisses - "the King of Cheeses" - "Take it out of the fridge, put it on a plate, wait for it to turn meltingly soft and alluring, then cut in and enjoy the beautiful essence of controlled milk spoilage." No wonder this book has become my guide when seeking out a new world of artisanal cheese to explore!
5-0 out of 5 stars A Course on Cheese
I love a good piece of stinky cheese. I enjoy taking it out of the fridge and letting its nasty old stank peel the paint off my walls, knockout my cat, and make the local children cry. It's how you know you gots yerself sum quality cheese right there.
5-0 out of 5 stars Remarkable!Essential for Anyone Interested in Cheese
This book, written by one of America's foremost authorities on cheese, is remarkable.The material is well researched, the photographs are stunning, and the recommendations are top notch.Particularly important are the wine pairings, which are insightful and very useful.Like McCalman's "The Cheese Plate," this book looks as elegant as a coffee table book, however it contains a wealth of information valuable to any cheese enthusiast.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this book
I bought this book for myself several years ago. I learned so much because each recipe is a mini lesson with tips for those times when things go wrong. I just bought this book again as a bridal shower gift.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book - Unfriendly Layout
Any cookbook edited by Maria Guarnaschelli and graced with a forward by Maida Heatter is bound to be something of value.There are plenty of simple cakes in this impressive volume that can be prepared without much difficulty along with some real showstoppers such as "Blueberry Swan Cake". The book is full of techniques, equipment and ingredient recommendations, ideas and lessons in cake decorating, and is a marvelous general reference work for bakers at all levels of experience.The section entitled "Temperatures and Tests for Sugar Syrup" is invaluable.The "Special Categories" section is also useful for determining which cakes are better made in advance, which are quick to pull together, and which are lower in fat and cholesterol (The author, Rose Beranbaum, is married to a physician). My favorite recipe in the book - one I use regularly, is the Sour Cream Ganache - probably the easiest recipe in the book.Its beauty is in its simplicity and, assuming the quality of chocolate is sublime, transports the palate to an Elysian experience.My only complaint about this otherwise first-rate manual, is the way the recipes are listed in a table format. Beranbaum uses the same format in her other baking books, but somehow I find it unfriendly and unappealing. This is of small importance overall and is a matter of personal preference - some readers may love it.Also, many of the recipes are just variations of others.In the recipe for Lemon Crepes Suzette, the first item on the recipe list is "1 recipe Chantilly Crepes".I find it easier to have each recipe stand on its own without having to go back and forth. It is obvious that this book has stood the test of time - even after 18 years, it is still being published in hardcover.Beranbaum is thorough and passionate without ever being pretentious.

3-0 out of 5 stars Professional Pastry Chef
I have owned this book for years and have refered back to it many times,the problem is that it becomes very confusing if you try to incorperate her advice in with what you are already doing.It seems that the only way most of her ideas work is if you from start to finish only follow her recipes.And what's with the "Rose factor" any one who has this book knows what I am talking about.There are definitely some great pieces of advice and nice little stories but all in all not my favorite. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars My Favorite baby food book!!
This is the first review I've ever written.. but I just had to after seeing some of the negative reviews on it!YIKES!!
5-0 out of 5 stars so much info at your fingertips
I was shocked to read the poor reviews of this book, this is the first book I've ever reviewed and I'm doing it because it has made such a difference in our lives.I wanted to make my own healthy baby food because my firstborn suffered a lot of digestive problems starting at the time I began feeding her store bought baby food.Fresh, preservative-free homemade baby food made the difference for us.Since then I have started all my babies this way.I am thankful to Ruth Yaron for doing the legwork of getting all the info together in one book.The book includes a table of foods and the vitamins/minerals they contain, there's a section on how to prepare all the major fruits and vegetables, lots of helpful tips and hints, a good reference section on nutrition, recipes, schedules for when to feed certain foods, and lots more.She is a fanatic about some of her healthy additives for baby's food, I didn't get bothered with all that.If you really want to make your own healthy baby food and want to learn a little about good nutrition in general, this is the book for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Passionate
This book is advice from a very passionate mom.She's a little over the top on some things, as I'm sure we all are on the things we are most passionate about, but all in all it is a great reference for feeding your baby a healthy, balanced, diet.One thing I would add is that you can make the rice cereal in a rice cooker a little easier than on the stove and when you freeze it after making it that way it is not rubbery at all.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of Wine's Grand Old Men
By Bill Marsano. We can divide wine drinkers into three classes. Ordinaire Joe, who'd rather drink wine than talk about it, is here advised to flee: This book will bore him stupid. The Wine Geek is just the opposite; for him wine is an excuse to prattle about clonal selection and hints of toffee on the nose. He'll love this book--will take it to bed with him. It is a gold mine of tasting notes covering many decades and innumerable wines from most regions of the world. The emphasis is on France, with Germany a distant third (there is no second), Italy a distant fifth (there is no fourth) and everybody else reduced to odds and ends. There's lots of stuff on champagne and port, too--a quintessentially British slant.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sweet Dreams are Made of These
I first fell under Mr. Broadbent's spell during my earliest days as a fledgling sommelier. His slender volume, Michael Broadbent's Complete Guide to Wine Tasting and Wine Cellars (1982) has long been, like they say about middleweight boxers, pound-for-pound the best book I've ever read about appreciating wine. When the wine auction scene arrived in Chicago in the mid-eighties. I can still remember attending some of the first few events at the University Club, sponsored by Christie's and conducted by the legendary MB. I was overwhelmed watching him lead auctions, but way too shy and in awe of him to introduce myself. Read more

Ms. Batmanglij presents a thorough listing of Persian cuisine with beautiful pictures accompaning most dishes.Her style of cooking almost represents the Western orientation of Iran which is truly the most tasteful and decorative collection of the Persian cuisine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent food in easy to follow recipes!
This is an excellent cookbook with authentic Iranian cuisine. All the recipes I've tried so far, came out great, just as I remember my Iranian grandma making them. Some of the ingredients are difficult to find in areas without Iranian specialty food stores, but Batmanglij usually gives alternatives that are readily available anywhere. The directions for each recipe are clear and easy to follow. The beautiful pictures are mouth-watering, and it's sometimes difficult to decide what to cook first.

Editorial Review

3-0 out of 5 stars Because "White Trash Cuisine" was already taken...it's "Semi-Homemade Cooking"
I admit that my review title was unfair and harsh.As was the opening remark I was going to borrow from P.J. O'Rourke: "...the only reason you would cook this would be to convince your ex-wife (or parole officer) that you were trying to live like a human being."
4-0 out of 5 stars Try some of these, they're good, they're fast!
After reading a few of the reviews of this cookbook, I was a little confused. I bought Semi-Homemade Cooking without reading any reviews, and I'm glad I did. I'm a regular old mom and housewife, and one of my main goals every day is to make a delicious, hearty meal for my hard-working husband to appreciate when he gets home. I can't make a from-scratch masterpiece every day (especially with a one-year-old running around), so that is where this cookbook comes in handy!
3-0 out of 5 stars Advertising
This book really isn't about eating on a budget or nutritious food.The way I see it, it is all about advertising.While this may have changed with the 2nd release of the book, the first release is just pages of her brand loyalties. Do we really need to use her brand recommendations for butter?Or saltines?Come on!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Little Wine Book
This is a wonderful little wine book. It contains at least 101 little tips to make you more knowledgable about wine. This is the perfect starter book for anyone looking to learn about wine and be able to carry on an intelligent conversation about wine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cute and Useful Wine Book!
The information in this book is not too dense but helpful in quickly understanding the process of wine making and many extras. It is decorated with pictures relating to the respective subjects covered. This book tells you easily how wine works - without the manuscripts you find in other books. It is organized in understandable sections. The diagrams are in color and are specific. If you have absolutely no knowledge on wine (like how I was), I recommended this book to anyone who wants to get a better understanding of wine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent source for beginners
I checked this book out of the library, and liked it so much I had to get a copy for myself! I am organizing a wine tasting group, and my hope is to educate as well as learn along with everyone else. We range from novice toexperience wine tasters in our group. This little guidebook is one that Iwill bring to every tasting as a quick reference for those who want tolearn an overview.Read more

I love this book!!!I also love the entire concept of "Super Suppers".With busy lives and busy families this book can be an answer to "whats for dinner tonight?".The recipe use normal regular food, not anything exotic.But they taste great!!!I have already tried several recipes and my entire family has enjoyed them.Keep up the good work "Super Suppers".Only next time do add the nutritional info, it would be a big help.

5-0 out of 5 stars TheCheat-Sheet for Cheese Lovers
Murray's Cheese Handbook tells us cheese lovers what we have always wanted to know; What are the most fabulous, sexiest, to-die-for, delicious cheeses in the world (that we must eat immediately!)? This book is like sitting down, one-on-one, with Rob Kaufelt and Liz Thorpe. They give us all the quick tips it has taken them years of experience to accumulate. Read this book, and you'll make all your friends think you're the hippest cheese genious around.

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative and fun
Murray's Guide to Cheese successfully combines all the elements for an outstanding food guide.It is endlessly informative, and everybody from the absolute novice to the most seasoned caseophile will learn something new. Everything from milk types, to storing cheese, to descriptions of the cheeses themselves is discussed succintly and articulately.The author does not assume the reader has an advanced lexicon of esoteric cheese-world terms, nor does he ever "talk down" to the reader.The Top 10 Lists, beverage pairing and cheese plate composing indices alone are worth the price!

5-0 out of 5 stars a sexy book for sexy cheese
Finally, a sexy book for sexy cheese.This book gives fantastic insight to the world of fromage, without being too dense.Rob makes it cool to be in to cheese.I loved the top ten sexiest cheese list.That's just great.The whole book was filled with good insights on so many cheeses, most of which can't be found at the local grocery.I'm getting hungry for cheese just thinking about the book again.Makes me want to go visit Murray's and buy some more, even though I have plenty in the fridge already.Great book, cheese for every man woman and child.Rob Kaufelt is setting the trend, making cheese cool again.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Cookbook
This cookbook is really awesome and I am so happy that you offered it for sale at such a great price. Sandra Lee and Rachael Ray Cookbooks are my favorite and I highly recommend them as well as watching their Food Channel Programs.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worse than her first cookbook
My mother gave me this book and her first cookbook, too.Hard to believe, but this book seems worse than the first one.She must get paid a bazillion dollars by the Processed Food Association because no one in their right mind would use so much crappy processed food in their recipes.She seems totally oblivious to the fact that fresh food is available in her regular supermarket and that its just as easy to use in recipes. ...
