This cookbook is filled with basic tips and conversion tables to help the aspiring home cook. There is also a section on cutting and cooking methods that I found to be very helpful. The recipes are presented with large color pictures of the finished product and a list of the ingredients. Then there are pictures of the process, but you will have to check in the section on methods to cook the dish correctly. The instructions are a tad different then we find in most cookbooks. All in bright colors and filled with information and deliciously easy recipes. This is an aspiring family chef's delight.
