Happy cooking all!
Hi all, I know I'm a touch early as it is still the 30th but tomorrow is Canada day and I will be away from my computer so I thought I would put them up now.
Anyone else finding the index a little lacking? I'm excited to try many recipes and have sticky-noted more than a dozen, some found while leafing through the book others via the cooking-from discussion.
But looking for a recipe that uses a specific ingredient (e.g., tortellini) or for a salad-course via the index gave nothing for tortellini (just generic pasta entry in the index) and then simply a referral to the in-chaper table of contents page for the pasta section or the entire salad chapter. I eventually found what looks like a fine recipe using tortellini, it just took some extra looking to get there.
I would just like to thank those who voted for this book. I've had it for ages and had already cooked a fair number of things from it (much more than from most of the books I own) but I'm still managing to find a lot of new things to try. It has really shown me just how much there is in this book, and most of the new stuff I've tried I have liked very much. Just feeling kind of "Yippee!" about how this has worked out.
I'm liking the recipes too. I bought it June 11, 2011 just 8 months after it was published. The condition was, "Used - Like New". Several recipes were made during the intervening years. Now the pages are actually falling out of the book. It seems the binding consists of just glue and groups of pages were adhered to the binding board, for lack of a better term. It's upsetting.
The sad thing is this is not the first cookbook this has happened to. Other books in our home library have lasted in perfect condition for decades. Jaffery's World Vegetarian: the entire Index section fell out and is held in place by a small bullnose clip. Around My French Table: several pages at once have fallen out. LOL It looks like I don't know how to care for a book and I assure you that's not the case.
