The Cook's Companion
The Cook's Companion has established itself as the kitchen "bible" in more than 500,000 homes since it was first published in 1996. This 2014 revision includes two major new chapters, two expanded chapters, 70 new recipes, and a complete revision of the text to reflect changes in the marketplace and new regulations. Stephanie believes that good food is essential to living well: her book is for everyone, every day. She has invaluable information about ingredients, cooking techniques, and kitchen equipment, along with inspiration, advice, and encouragement, and close to 1,000 failsafe recipes.
