Jeff lent this book to me and it is a really great book to have. here

"Mark Bittman, award-winning author of such fundamental books as Fish and Leafy Greens and food columnist for the New York Times ("The Minimalist"), has turned in what has to be the weightiest tome of the year. There are more than 900 pages in this sucker--over 1,500 recipes! This isn't just the big top of cookbooks: it's the entire three-ring circus. This isn't just how to cook everything: it's how to cook everything you have ever wanted to have in your mouth. And then some. Bittman starts with Roasted Buttered Nuts and Real Buttered Popcorn, and moves right along, section by section, from the likes of Black Bean Soup (eight different ways), to Beet and Fennel Salad, to Mussels (Portuguese-style over Pasta), to Cream Scones--and he hasn't even reached seafood, poultry, meat, or vegetables yet, let alone desserts."
I love this book. Its so sleek. here

New York Times Magazine:

“A stylish little cookbook . . . a seductive object, beautifully proportioned and designed, but also remarkably comprehensive. After covering basic kitchen skills, The Basics zips through an overview of savory cooking, then switches to baking and desserts. But while most general cookbooks would stop there, The Basics plunges onward into contemporary cuisine.”

The best Korean cook book I have found so far. I love the Galbi Jim recipe from it. here

Product Description
A wonderful collection of recipes by Chang Sun-Young, whose sons and daughters-in-law begged that she write these down. The family project soon had enough recipes to become a book, and Mrs. Chang became a bestselling author in Korea. This full color cookbook includes sections on rice, soups, stews, meats, vegetables and the full range of Korean cuisine. The author's personality shines through in the additional notes about friends, entertaining and foods for special days."

I plan to attend this school September 2009. Its a wonderful cook book. here

"Editorial Reviews
From Library Journal
The Ballymaloe Cooking School, which Allen and her husband opened at his family's Ballymaloe House Hotel in Cork County, Ireland, in 1983, has an international reputation, and this impressive new cookbook/reference makes it easy to see why. With its own organic farm and extensive gardens, the school has always been known for its emphasis on fresh, seasonal cooking, and Allen's sophisticated recipes, from Roast Red Pepper, Caper, and Preserved Lemon Salad to Seared Beef with Gorgonzola, Polenta, and Red Onion Marmalade, draw on cuisines from around the world; guest chefs at the school have included Marcella Hazan, Madhur Jaffrey, and other culinary authorities. In addition to the hundreds of recipes, there are dozens of technique photos illustrating some 200 essential kitchen tasks, as well as stunning color photographs of ingredients and finished dishes. Chapter introductions touch on a wide range of topics, and there are separate sections on breakfast, drinks, finger foods, and preserves of all sorts. Although this will be as valuable as a reference work as a cookbook, the text is far from dry Allen writes with a sense of humor and a nice turn of phrase. Highly recommended. "
I also use a lot of recipes from a Canadian cook book my boyfriend gave me .
