Easy Basics for a new century
Cookbook offers favorite recipes and techniques
The owner of a Portland store that specializes in cookbooks once proposed that Sunset reissue its 15-year-old (Easy Basics for Good Cooking). She described it as one of the most useful books available for the beginning cook and equally valuable for the culinarily adept.
Well, I have something better to offer: Sunset’s New Easy Basics Cookbook, Step by Step: The Fundamentals of Good Cooking (Sunset Books, Menlo Park, CA, April 1997; $24.95). This 192-page book represents the effort of many ― including food writers whose names you’ve seen through the years on our masthead. It was my pleasure to act as editor for the project.
