KIRKUS REVIEW

An expanded version of that jumble in the indices of most cookbooks -this mix contains news about essential cooking equipment, ""common"" cooking operations, methods for various meats, seafood, the mysteries of the omniscient stock, general rules and guidelines for soups and sauces, the ways of vegetables, fruits, egg and' cheese wisdom, beverages and hors d'oeuvres. A few Sample recipes are included, but the emphasis is on general principles, the pitch being that it doesn't matter which cookbook you read if you know how to read it, and that is just what this beginner's lexicon intends to teach. Basic blend for the bride.
