The JOY of COOKING
“If You Could Only Have One Cookbook?”
THIS WOULD BE IT
Why it’s a classic: It’s THE all-purpose cookbook for everything from boiling eggs to making chocolate cake. If you’re looking for a specific recipe, chances are it’s in this book.
It’s an encyclopedia, in an age where we rely on Google for such things. But when I was writing a Bon Appétit article on a specific ingredient lately, the entry in the Joy of Cooking glossary had more than anything I found online, with cited sources. I’m not kidding! The recipes have expanded, so there’s not as much squirrel, but there are Korean short ribs and chickpea pancakes and Japanese okonomiyaki. If there’s a newer cook in your life who doesn’t already have an earlier edition, now’s the time to induct them into the Joy of Cooking cult.
