Item description for The Fannie Farmer Cookbook: Anniversary by Marion Cunningham, Fannie Farmer Cookbook Corporation & Archibald Candy Corporation...
Overview Features nearly two thousand recipes and includes chapters dealing with microwave, outdoor, and vegetarian cooking
Publishers Description Here is the great basic American cookbook--with more than 1,990 recipes, plain and fancy--that belongs in every household. Originally published in 1896 as The Boston Cooking-School Cook Book by Fannie Merritt Farmer, it became "the" coobook that taught generations of Americans how to cook. Completely updating it for the first time since 1979, Marion Cunningham made Fannie Farmer once again a household word for a new generation of cooks. What makes this basic cookbook so distinctive is that Marion Cunningham, who is the personification of the nineteenth-century teacher, is always at your side with her forthright tips and comments, encouraging the beginning cook and inspiring the more adventurous. She knows what today's cooks are looking for, and she has a way of instilling confidence and joy in the act of cooking. In giving the book new life, Mrs. Cunningham has been careful always to preserve the best of the old. She has retained all the particularly good, tried-and-true recipes from preceding editions, retesting and rewriting when necessary. She has rediscovered lost treasures, including delicious recipes that were eliminated when practically no one baked bread at home. This is now the place to find the finest possible recipes for Pumpkin Soup, Boston Baked Beans, Carpetbag Steak, Roast Stuffed Turkey, Anadama Bread, Indian Pudding, Apple Pie, and all of the other traditional favorites. The new recipes reflect ethnic influences--Mediterranean, Moroccan, Asian--that have been adding their flavors to American cooking in recent years. Tucked in among all your favorites like Old-Fashioned Beef Stew, New England Clam Chowder, Ham Timbales, and Chicken Jambalaya, you'll find her cool Cucumber Sushi, Enchiladas with Chicken and Green Sauce, or a layered dish of Polenta and Fish to add variety to your repertoire. Always a champion of old-fashioned breakfasts and delectable desserts, Mrs. Cunningham has many splendid new offerings to tempt you. Throughout, cooking terms and procedures are explained, essential ingredients are spelled out, basic equipment is assessed. Mrs. Cunningham even tells you how to make a good cup of coffee and how to brew tea properly. For the diet-conscious, there is an expanded nutritional chart that includes a breakdown of cholesterol and fat in common ingredients as well as in Fannie Farmer basic recipes. Where the taste of a dish would not be altered, Mrs. Cunningham has reduced the amount of cream and butter in some of the recipes from the preceding edition. She carefully evaluates the issues of food safety today and alerts us to potential hazards. But the emphasis here is always on good flavor, fresh ingredients, and lots of variety in one's daily fare, which Marion Cunningham believes is the secret to a healthy diet. Dedicated to the home cooks of America, young and old, this thirteenth edition of the book that won the hearts of Americans more than a century ago invites us all--as did the original Fannie Farmer--to cherish the delights of the family table.

a family cookbook, with helpful basic information Mar 3, 2008
My Aunt gave me the Fanny Farmer cookbook in 1979. I gave one to my daughter-in-law in 2000 and now have purchased the new edition for my daughter, for a bridal shower gift. Every cook should have this book...has helped me over the years with a lot of basic cooking and baking questions. I always look in my Fanny Farmer cookbook before researching the answer anywhere else! Patrice

I bought this to replace a worn out dog eared paperback copy.
This is by far my most valued cookbook. Classic recipes and techniques. If you could only have one cookbook, this is it.
A classic for your kitchen Nov 29, 2007
I am introducing my 16 year old granddaughter to cooking from scratch and needed a simple to understand book. I saw this at a friend's home and loved the basic measurements tables as well as the recipes. I ordered 3 of these: one for my granddaughter, one for my son's girlfriend, and one for me. This one is already marked for future cooking experiments.

The Fannie Farmer cookbook has been the mainstay in my family for several generations. Recently, my two children suggested they would like to have a copy. I found this new version at this site. It has all of the good features of the older version, but with some new updated recipes. I can heartily recommend it as the basic family cookbook.
