Essential for home chefs, here is the great basic American cookbook--with more than 1,990 recipes, plain and fancy--that belongs in every household. Originally published in 1896 as The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book by Fannie Merritt Farmer, it became the coobook that taught generations of Americans how to cook. Completely updating it for the first time since 1979, Marion Cunningham made Fannie Farmer once again a household word for a new generation of cooks. What makes this basic cookbook so distinctive is that Marion Cunningham, who is the personification of the nineteenth-century teacher, is always at your side with her forthright tips and comments, encouraging the beginning cook and inspiring the more adventurous. She knows what today's cooks are looking for, and she has a way of instilling confidence and joy in the act of cooking. In giving the book new life, Mrs. Cunningham has been careful always to preserve the best of the old. She has retained all the particularly good, tried-and-true recipes from preceding editions, retesting and rewriting when necessary. She has rediscovered lost treasures, including delicious recipes that were eliminated when practically no one baked bread at home. This is now the place to find the finest possible recipes for Pumpkin Soup, Boston Baked Beans, Carpetbag Steak, Roast Stuffed Turkey, Anadama Bread, Indian Pudding, Apple Pie, and all of the other traditional favorites. The new recipes reflect ethnic influences--Mediterranean, Moroccan, Asian--that have been adding their flavors to American cooking in recent years. Tucked in among all your favorites like Old-Fashioned Beef Stew, New England Clam Chowder, Ham Timbales, and Chicken Jambalaya, you'll find her cool Cucumber Sushi, Enchiladas with Chicken and Green Sauce, or a layered dish of Polenta and Fish to add variety to your repertoire. Always a champion of old-fashioned breakfasts and delectable desserts, Mrs. Cunningham has many splendid new offerings to tempt you. Throughout, cooking terms and procedures are explained, essential ingredients are spelled out, basic equipment is assessed. Mrs. Cunningham even tells you how to make a good cup of coffee and how to brew tea properly. For the diet-conscious, there is an expanded nutritional chart that includes a breakdown of cholesterol and fat in common ingredients as well as in Fannie Farmer basic recipes. Where the taste of a dish would not be altered, Mrs. Cunningham has reduced the amount of cream and butter in some of the recipes from the preceding edition. She carefully evaluates the issues of food safety today and alerts us to potential hazards. But the emphasis here is always on good flavor, fresh ingredients, and lots of variety in one's daily fare, which Marion Cunningham believes is the secret to a healthy diet. Dedicated to the home cooks of America, young and old, this thirteenth edition of the book that won the hearts of Americans more than a century ago invites us all--as did the original Fannie Farmer--to cherish the delights of the family table.… (més)

This is a great book for cooks just starting out. It begins each chapter with the basics: for example, how to plan meals, illustrations for cuts of meat, how to thicken gravy, or different ways to cut sandwiches. There is probably no basic recipe you could look for that isn’t in this book, and therein lies its value. Many cookbooks have exotic recipes, but what if you just need to know how to cook chicken or how to make a hamburger or how to make rice? Yes, there are fancier recipes included, but most of them are what any cook needs to know whether he or she is more ambitious or not.

Highly recommended as a staple in every kitchen! ( )

I grew up with my mother's 1970's split, falling apart, taped in separated pages copy gracing our kitchen and always begged her to get another book. Then one day, this hardcover reissued anniversary edition came under my tree and I have learned why my mother kept her tattered, broken copy as something sacred.

Despite having been given so many different instructional guides, Fannie Farmer has been my go-to guide for many years. Not only do I look up techniques I do not know or cannot remember, I often look up topics I am already familiar with to see what Marion Cunningham has to say and always learn something new.

The instructions are very clear and the recipes solid. In fact, when starting at a new office, there was an upcoming bake sale and I was strongly encouraged to participate to help assimilate. Well, I am a cook, not a baker, but I had so much faith in Fannie Farmer (and my mother's advice) that I made her gingerbread cookies for the first time for the bake sale - and had everyone commenting and asking for the recipe. It feels so good to have a cookbook I can rely upon to simply work whenever I try to make something.

As for my mother's tattered '70's edition, she did buy herself a new copy at the same time. She assures me that one day my copy will be as well-loved as hers once was and to prepare for the chiding of my own children. I simply remind her that, if you find a good reference you will be opening a lot, buy a hardcover; the expense is worth it.

EDIT: Having read other people's reviews, I must concede that the lack of pictures can be troublesome for some beginner cooks and the recipes are mostly basics - this is not a foodie cookbook (I have others for that). However, one cannot begin to walk then run a marathon, nor can every movement be a dance; this is a great book to have around as a reference to a wide variety of foods/techniques on which to build a solid foundation, as well as for some of our home-made comfort foods.

I read the 1979 edition. It is antiquated in many ways ("Although freezer-lockers are available in many towns on a rental basis, it pays to invest in a freezer of your own"), and full of things that are out of fashion (home-made preserves and candy). But there is a comprehensive array of recipes, and many are excellent, serviceable and imaginative and well written. This cookbook is a keeper, and a good reference source. I have tried some of the recipes (yogurt salad dressing was fresh and herby-y and delicious), and will try others -- maybe even some of that homemade candy. ( )

This 1995 Penguin Books edition is a very brief "selections from" version of the original book, not a complete facsimile reprint. ( )
