Freshman in the Kitchen:
From Clueless Cook to Creative Chef


by Max and Eli Sussman

This is a wonderful cookbook for anyone who hasn't got a lot of experience in the kitchen, but who wants to cook tasty food in a short time. It assumes that the reader is a complete novice, and includes a plethora of information about basic supplies, shopping lists and resources on websites. It's full of humor and good tips that would interest even sophisticated cooks.
The page layout is very simple & attractive. The spiral binding allows it to lie flat on the counter, which is a great advantage. Beautiful photos make the food eye appealing and suggest how to present the food.
All in all, this is a wonderful gift for a new bride or young person who is about to venture into cooking for the first time, and it's fun to read!

I can honestly say that this is a great book for new cooks of all ages. I bought a copy for my son and he uses it all the time...from making guacamole to turkey chili. It's written in a very easy-to-understand manner that has a good progression from simple recipes to more challenging...all while keeping the recipes light on the wallet for college age kids. The authors don't overload the reader/cook with too many ingredients for each recipe. As a librarian who reviews book I can honestly say that this book is more than worth the price.
