Thread: Microwave Cookbook

    Default Microwave Cookbook

    Bought a microwave cookbook at Border's last night. Haven't gone through it
    much but the name of it is "Getting The Best From Your Microwave" by Carol
    Bowen. It looks like a nice one for the beginner microwave cook. Sorta
    the "Nuking For Dummies" type of book. Will post the first recipe I make
    out of it.

    By far the best microwave cookbook I've ever seen is "Microwave Gourmet" by
    Barbara Kafka.
    http://www.amazon.com/Microwave-Gour...3750444&sr=1-1
    For me it's kind of the "Larousse Gastronomique " for the microwave. Almost
    all ingredients are specifically covered in addition to her recipes. I've
    been making roux in the microwave with olive oil for years, and hadn't seen
    it anywhere in print until I found it here. It's 5X faster and easier than
    making Roux on the stove.
    Cheers,

    Kent

    I've never seen a Barbara Kafka book I didn't like. I have several,
    although I don't have her microwave book.

    Which ones do you have?

    I love her Food and Friends cookbook. I use her garlic-olive oil
    roasted potatoes in that book....it is the best!

    And also from that book, a few other recipes: the appetizer of peppers
    and tomatoes in herbed olive oil. I made that for the October 2003
    San Diego cook-in and got raves. Charliam lapped it up...

    And I have made the taramosalata too. That is also very good. I also
    tried her method of fixing duck, and that one needs more work, at
    least from this side...LOL.

    I have her Roasting cookbook, and Party Food. I also have both her
    microwave books. And I forget what else.

    Of course you do, Christine. You have damn near every cookbook on the
    planet. :-) I used to have many many more, but felt compelled to give up
    quite a few in the last several moves. Wish I hadn't.

    I only wish I had that many!!

    Ginny has me beat by a long shot...she has over 4000, I think. She

    Good grief! Before I started paring down my collection, I only had ~1800
    and I thought that was a lot. I probably have less than half that now.

    > Christine, who just bought a new Indian cookbook: My Bombay Kitchen


    I love Indian cuisine and, surprisingly, as picky David is about food, he
    actually enjoys many curries, so I get to make them fairly often. I mostly
    make up my own, however.

    At least I have no such intention when I love. BUT it appears that half
    of my cookbooks disappeared when they were supposed to be safe in
    storage. Person who put them in storage has no explanation. How am *I*
    supposed to know? All *I* know is that they never emerged from storage.
    I don't even know the total of what is lost--just find myself thinking
    of specific books I had (and not just cookbooks).
