Reviews - What do customers think about Mega Cooking: A Revolutionary New Plan for Quantity Cooking?
Mass food with a cafeteria sensibility Mar 2, 2006
If you need to regularly cook for a camp, church gathering or a shelter this is the book. But for a small family that wants to save time and still eat interesting and healthy food this is not the book. I was very disappointed.
If you liked Dinner's in the Freezer, get this, too. Feb 14, 2001
While the book covers much of the same material as Dinner, it's updated and expanded to include breakfast and lunch. It's definitely a different book. There's more information about regional produce markets, and a recipe index. I'm disappointed that there aren't forms to photocopy like there are in "Dinner."
If you've never cooked in quantity, this book will take you by the hand and make it easy.
Now, to be picky, the math in the benefits section leaves much to be desired (waaay overstating the value of buying in bulk), and an appendix that was promised in the bulk buying section wasn't included. Both of those bugged me, but it's worth the effort to go beyond these and other editing errors to get to the information.
A time-saving, delicious and easy way to feed my family. Dec 14, 2000
Jill Bond does an extraordinary job in this book of explaining exactly how to Mega-Cook. I have read many books on this subject and this book by far puts me at ease with this somewhat intimidating process. I'm thankful for the tips she gives on page 103 about making up multiple batches. She gives an example of this method so those of us who need to "see" things can grasp the idea. This is a wonderful way to get started by understanding the whole process of this type of cooking and food preservation. The tips she sprinkles throughout as well as the test family responses gives everyone a great variety of recipes and ideas to choose from. Jill makes me feel that I know her family with the personal touches she puts in the pages. I waited quite a while for this book to be released and it has not disappointed me. I have tried some of the recipes and my family has enjoyed each one. I am looking forward to this method becoming a very welcomed way of life for me and my family.
Wonderful, beautiful book Dec 13, 2000
Jill Bond's done it again! As one of the premier practitioners of bulk cooking, Jill's easy to follow recipes, instructions and tips are what got me started originally with her first book. This is beautifully done with tons more ideas and recipes! Absolutely deserves front place on my bulk cooking shelf!
