APRIL 2010 Cookbook of the Month: HOW TO COOK EVERYTHING, Bittman

Caitlin McGrath Apr 1, 2010 05:25 PM

Our Cookbook of the Month for April is Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything. We'll be cooking from both the original 1998 edition and the revised 2008 edition. The chapter organization varies slightly between the two, but the threads below cover all the categories.

If you're new to Cookbook of the Month, the Archive page explains how it all works: http://www.chow.com/cookbook_of_the_month_archive

      and now HTCE is an iPhone app. Good gravy! It seems pretty good, with all 2000 recipes.

          This app is wonderful! It's a steal at $1.99! Love how you don't need a wifi connection to access the recipes and the embedded timer is cool. Easy to use and so cool!

            Wow, fantastic app! Thanks for pointing it out. If nothing else, using it for the ingredient search alone is worth it. I may still go to the book during the actual cooking (the iPhone screen is just a little too small for this, imho), but it's so much easier to look up recipes this way than the book index. The app is well designed and easy to use too. Just excellent.

              That is why you actually need an iPad. :-)
