    1. Although several recipes claim that they will take no time, there is some serious prep time for those of us who cannot handle a knife like a person on Top Chef. For instance, Spicy Shrimp requires 4 cloves of garlic thinly sliced. Well it took me close to 20 minutes to cut two cloves of garlic, peel the skin and then dice and slice, but given that the closest I ever came to a clove was in a crossword, I though the prep time was worth it as the food came out pretty good.The recipes seem fairly st [...]


    2. Getting your feet wet with Bittman. Accessible if you don't wanna tackle his gigantic How to Cook Everything series.


    3. This has set new expectations of cookbooks for me. Not just do you get awesome recipes, but you also get variations as well as key pointers on how to get them right! (You also get ideas for what to serve it with, wine to pair it with, and a little editorial comment often with some history on the dish.) I'd like to broaden the range of things I'm comfortable cooking, but sometimes you get these ingredients that you've never used before and you end up guessing what to do with them. Well, here you [...]


    4. This is one of the best cookbooks that I don't own--mostly because alot of this is fairly intuitive for me--he is the most like me of any professional cook that I have read--which is not to say that I am any where near his level, but I already cook and eat in the neighborhood that her lives in. This would be GREAT if you lived alone and were persistently eating alone (something that I realized today that I have never ever done)


    5. clearly not doe the novice cook. It is a nice book to help the average cook to kick up the sophistication of their meals without losing one's sanity or time. I will probably only write down a few recipients but for a home with few or no dietary restrictions, this is a good way to expand their cooking experience.


    6. Yeah, I know second cookbookwhat exactly do I read. Mark Bittman has a number of really easy recipes that have all come out well. I'm a big fan of the mussels and monk fish (never knew until this book). I also like that he gives some ideas on variations of a meal. Nice when you may not have all the ingredients on hand.


    7. I think I must be picky about cookbooks. It was a good cookbook but I think I get frustrated when they take a rack of lamb or some kind of expensive fish and say "It is so simple". I found a few good recipes that I will try and I do like the approach that food does not have to be too complicated. I guess I still want it to fly onto my plate for less than $10 a person. :)


    8. B+ A lot of non veg recipes but some interesting stuff. Good for the quick cook who don't have a ton of time. I'm eager to try the recipes for miso soup and pasta w parsley sauce - both seem easy and yummy.


    9. 3.5 - love mark bittman and the simplicity of this book is clear, but there aren't a lot of veggie things in here to keep me interested, but he makes making sort of fancy stuff seem easy so gotta love that.


    10. I am a huge fan of the Bittman and I learned from this book that you can make pasta like you would make risotto very interesting. Much like in "How to Cook Everything", he gives variations for the recipes.


    11. There are some great dinner ideas in this book, though definitely not the sort of slap-dash, throw-together-in-twenty-minutes dinners I usually make. A lot of these require a little more planning ahead and prepping, but would be well worthwhile.



    12. I love his column in the "New York Times" so thought I'd try the book. It has no photos to speak of so I'm already a little turned off






    13. One of my favorite cookbooks. Essential for me, the new cook. This book was given to my sister as a wedding present, she gave it to me when I saw it on her shelf. I love it! I love his explanations.






    14. Not nearly as good as things one finds in everyday foodscmagazine and fine cooking magazine. Not impressed in the slightest.


    15. Mark Bittman delivers. He's single-handedly revolutionized our kitchen. Well, not single-handedly. There have been others. But I wouldn't feel crazy buying every book he's ever written.



    16. I'm sure all his recipes taste great, but his cookbook is very dry. There are no pictures and very little writing.


    17. very boring for a bittman. nothing terribly innovative here - most of these recipes were from his minimalist series on the nytimes.
