Demonstrates how to boil, fry, and bake bean, rice, and grain dishes and provides a selection of international recipes
This book is illustrated in full with detailed steps of how to prepare various types of bean and grain dishes. This is followed by exact recipes which are not illustrated, but you really don’t need more pictures. The book was written in 1980, so the recipes are carefree with regard to fat content. Thus my calling it a Dream Book, as I, alas, am on a fat-restricted diet and can only dream of many of these dishes. Send some pity my way if you like, but by all means try the recipes if you are allowed the fat. They sound delicious. The pictures of bean and grain varieties are excellent. Of the three cookbooks I bought about beans, this is the only one that has pictures of the beans being described. This one also has the fewest recipes total, but these are drawn from a wide variety of cuisines. The book itself is of good quality, with two built-in place-markers consisting of book-long ribbons bound into the top edge of the book. The ribbons are made of woven fabric and don’t seem as if they will tear in use. The paper seems durable. The print is of normal size, which is large enough for me to read with my reading glasses. I don’t need to use my magnifying glass.
Time-Life cookbooks are excellent. They have lovely illustrations and excellent instructions. I am drying a lot of beans from my garden and decided it was time to get a good book about using them. This definitely fits the bill.
Another cookbook from the beautiful Time-Life collection. These cookbooks are amazing. Beautiful step by step color photographs that demonstrate techniques & just the very best recipes. An amazing set of books & each one is amazing. Get them while they are still available; I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
