KIRKUS REVIEW

If one considers the essence of good cooking to depend to a large extent on the quality of ingredients, one wonders immediately when faced with an ""economy"" cookbook what has been left out, or more important, what ""substitutes"" are thrown in. Alas, predictably, the recipes call forth cream of mushroom soup, instant potatoes, leftovers, and there are others using an inexpensive main ingredient with enormous outlays of effort and time. However, the authors do a competent job in their buying and storing guides, and it is refreshing to see a cavalier and unorthodox mention of brand names in recipes, most of which are hearty, and when not too gussied out in prepared foods, useful enough.
