Cooking At Home

Cooking At Home

If you are a beginner cook looking for a good transition cookbook, we recommend William Sonoma’s Cooking At Home: The Essential Kitchen Companion.

Cooking At Home offers an extensive variety of useful recipes with detailed instructions and expert advice.  We recommend this valuable resource as a “transition cookbook” because it is a book that does not teach simple cooking basics, but rather, teaches gourmet cooking basics.  Since Cooking At Home is meticulously detailed, it appeals to cooks looking for detailed instruction.    Put these recipes to work and you will have your guests eating out of your hand in no time!  You can find Cooking At Home and more at
