DK Canada recently sent me some fantastic cookbooks to check out, and knowing that I am a cookbook fiend, I was happy to oblige.
The Cook’s Book – Techniques and tips from the world’s master chefs is a glorious and HUGE (600+ pages) cookbook that is fantastic for new and curious cooks alike. With contributions from chefs like Charlie Trotter and Rick Bayless, this book is a fantastic guide to help the reader become a better cook at home. The cookbook thoroughly explains various cooking techniques, for every section of the cookbook, which I really like since I’m no Martha. I also LOVE that each recipe has it’s own series of photographs that walk you through the recipe and a photo of the final product as well. “Taking inspiration from hundreds of recipes, including many of the contributing chefs’ signature dishes, you will develop, improve and hone your culinary skills.” This one is a definite winner.
THE EVERYDAY EASY COLLECTION
- Cheap Eats
- Freeze Ahead Meals

Each of these books contain 90 simple-to-follow recipes, with a dedicated photo and symbols that explain servings, nutritional info, special equipment and even freezing instructions. With sections that outline useful techniques, and recipe planners, these cookbooks are perfect for the family cook.
