Clear simple easy-to-remember directions for a limited number of basic meals. Lots of tips: useful implements, shortcuts, substitutions.
I learned to cook from my mom 60+ years ago, did Julia 50 years ago, had an extensive cookbook collection (about 250) that I culled down to about 20 when I started collecting Social Security. How to Cook without a Book earns a place on that single bookshelf; it's the first addition since the culling. I read them and pass them on. Not this one.
