Picture Cook: See. Make. Eat.

We rated this book:


Sometimes cookbooks are difficult. This just so, this yea hot, so much and no more. Sometimes cookbooks are confusing. The colors clash, the text is neigh unending, the pictures harsh and stark. Sometimes cookbooks make it hard to find ingredients; they might omit a complete list of supplies, or be unclear as to when to add this or how much of that you must save. At last, here is a book that solves all these problems. Katie Shelly’s Picture Cook is presented in only seven colors. All the ingredients are illustrated, each step is represented visually, the exact amounts are all in the same place, the text is brief but effective, the recipes are easy, and the book is stuffed with clear and neat tips to improve your cooking.

I enjoyed this book a lot. The characters were well-presented, the dialogue witty and full of depth. I especially enjoyed the scene where Ice Cream, the protagonist, was finally reunited with his true love, Princess Blueberry Cobbler. The book really knew how to tug on those heartstrings. It was a good cookbook. Good recipes. Easy to read, easy to see.
