Starting Out

The Essential Guide to Cooking on Your Own

The perfect cooking survival guide for students, beginner chefs and young adults.

Thanks to Starting Out, students and people living in their first apartments can throw out their stash of take-out menus and boxes of macaroni and cheese. It's the perfect resource for young adults leaving the comfort of their mother's kitchen. Designed to help new chefs find independence, this handy book is filled with indispensable tips and information on basic cooking techniques, stocking cupboards and pantries, and fixing cooking disasters. It includes:

  • A glossary of cooking terms
  • A measurement chart
  • Menu and party ideas
  • Shopping tips
  • An ingredient resource guide
  • Even laundry tips.

Starting Out has more than 250 delicious and nutritious dishes, from breakfasts to baking. Included are quick and effortless recipes for cooking for one-such as Turkey Burgers, Pad Thai and Basic Curry-and also more sophisticated yet still easy-to-follow recipes for entertaining such as Chicken à la King, Chicken Parmigiana and Curried Peanut Shrimp.
