I sure wasn't cooking this way when I was in school...But it's never too late or too soon to learn.--Teresa Taylor"Charleston Post and Courier" (04/09/2010) A great guide for beginner cooks... a fun, practical and extremely tasty easy way to learn basic culinary skills.--Shelley Boettcher"Calgary Herald" (09/12/2010) [This] copiously illustrated cookbook...should appeal to any beginner, advanced beginner, or basic cook. Lots of easy-to-follow, how-to photos accompany the recipes to help those who are encountering a kitchen for the first time. It also has some surprising and inventive recipes (grilled bananas for dessert, anyone?) for the more advanced cook. Written for the student with no cooking experience, [Goodall] offers step-by-step photos that will make cooking a breeze... Highly recommended for the numerous photographs and the variety of recipes. At first glance, you might not think that this belongs in a "healthy cookbook" roundup, but consider the choices too often favored by time- and money-stretched college kids (McDonalds, anyone?). These recipes use real-food, economical ingredients that any college student could find and afford, making it easy to cook at home. I really love the layout of this book: It's got tons of super-simple how-to photos and dialogue "balloons" for every dish so even the most novice cook can follow along and not be intimidated. When students learn how easy and cheap it is to cook good food at home, that translates into better health for them and less money for fast-food joints. Divided into catchy categories like "Real Food Fast," "House Parties," "Food on the Move," and "Wasted Weekends," it even includes info on how to use up leftovers. I know what I'm giving my grad-school son! Hate to date myself but as college students in the 1970s our meals were a crossroads of old age and new age. We attempted to replicate Mother's home cooking while experimenting with the veggies, beans and grain combos that were coming to the fore. Much of it was less than spectacular but we had fun and of it was less than spectacular but we had fun and got some schooling in the kitchen in the process So I was curious to see what was cooking inside the freshly published The Ultimate Student Cookbook From Chicken to Chili (Firefly Books $14.95). Authored by Tiffany Goodall, a professional chef and a graduate of Ballymaloe Cookery School in Ireland, the book offers more than 100 appealing recipes and loads of how to photos while keeping needed tools and staples to a minimum. I sure wasn't cooking this way when I was in school so I'm a bit envious. But it s never too late or too soon to learn.--Teresa Taylor"Charleston Post and Courier" (04/09/2010) This could be called the ultimate "student of cooking" book, as the easy recipes and step-by-step illustrative photographs would be invaluable to anyone embarking on cooking for themselves or others. Simple ingredients and explanations of spices and herbs remove any mystery or stumbling blocks.--Annie Boulanger"Burnaby Now" (06/26/2010) If you are a student, or you know a student who's learning to cook, you may want to pick up the new cookbook, The Ultimate Student Cookbook. A great guide for beginner cooks...the book is a fun, practical and extremely tasty easy way to learn basic culinary skills.--Shelley Boettcher"Calgary Herald" (09/12/2010) Parents, don't panic. Put away those visions of scurvy. Quell your fears of massive student debt from expensive takeout. Terrific food is actually possible on a student budget.--Joanne Richard"Tillsonburg Independent News" (09/15/2010) Irresistible... .... an incredibly well-illustrated guide to meal prep... Goodall definitely knows what 20-somethings eat.--Jackie Burrell"About.com" (01/06/2012) Goodall may have created a cookbook for the iGeneration in her new image-rich volume... will resonate with social media fans.--Kimberly L. Jackson"NJ.Com (New Jersey)" (09/13/2012)
