Cooking has always been a burden to me and I have taken endless kidding about my culinary skills - some/most of it justified. Now at 62, I have decided to really learn to cook. I did some research and found Mark Bittman's book How to Cook Everything hightly recommended. However, when I reviewed it in the bookstore, I was both over and under-welmed. Fortunately, I stumbled up his new How to Cook Everything - the Basics book and it is wonderful.
