Since 1930, the Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book has been a trusted staple in kitchens across America. The 17th edition is fully updated and revised to reflect both the best of today’s food trends and time-tested classics. With more than 1,000 recipes and a photo for each one, the book covers both traditional dishes such as Brownies and new favorites like Cold Brew Coffee. This newest edition has a fresh organization to reflect how we cook today–recipes have flavor variations, options to swap out ingredients, and ways to make them healthier. Clear directions and how-to photos teach techniques; identification photos clarify the broad range of today’s ingredients; charts for meat and poultry give at-a-glance cooking times; and “cheat sheets” throughout present information in easy-to-access bites. And, for the first time, the book is now a handy, lay-flat hardcover, perfect for today’s kitchens.

I HAVE THE 1962 VERSION, the 2016 Version which is great. THIS BEATS THE BEST OF THEM ALL First cookbook I have just started at beginning and reading everything, cover to cover.

Don’t believe the negative reviews. This book is just great! Disclaimer – I have never owned a BHG cookbook. I am in my 50’s and I have over 160 cookbooks. I have several basic/how to cook cookbooks as well as more advanced cookbooks. There is a lot to love about this cookbook. It is the right size – not too big not too small. The cover feels good the to touch. The pictures are wonderful. It has tons of reference information and pictures, i.e pictures of types of peppers etc… that really help. There is a picture for each recipe and also, several…
