I have had this entire set of these wonderful Time Life books for many years. The Poultry book is the one I use most. The turkey tetrazzini recipe is fabulous and I always double it. I see someone else who left a review loves that recipe too. That recipe taught me what a roux is. My daughter has been asking me for some of the recipes so I decided to check Amazon to see if I can find the book. It makes my day that I can get one for her Not every recipe is illustrated in pictures. Just the earlier ones that show what may be new techniques to the user. I wouldn’t want to be without this book or set any more than I would want to be without my battered and stained Joy of Cooking.
I purchased a copy of this book originally in 1985. back when I didn’t know what to do with a chicken except shake & bake.I have lived through my entire married life with it. I lost my original copy when I moved this year, and I was honestly heartbroken, as it is long out of print. I sit here on the verge of processing my shopping cart, wiping tears from my cheeks. I love this book, I can’t make a bird without it. There is no substitute for the instructional pictures. I was lost at Thanksgiving, as I always open this book before I turn on the oven, and I never carved without it beside me. My Turkey was a little messy this year! ***NOTE*** The fried chicken is very crispy, and easy to do (the floured one, not the deep fried) Try the bread cases for leftovers, they are a little fussy to make, but lovely!
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.
