By Any Other Name ... Would Be a Better Idea

New Joy of Cooking
"Joy of Cooking" is a wonderful cookbook that belongs in every kitchen (and if you can afford or even want a second, then get "Pirates's Pantry").

Unfortunately, this is NOT that book.

If this had a different name -- a title that did not include the words "joy of cooking", i'd give it one or even two more stars. But this is not the book that i grew up with in my mother's and my grandmother's kitchens, and that i have already worn out a copy of myself, and it loses a star or so for attempting to claim it is a mere "revision" of that honourable book.

Not a bad book, really, but not essential, unlike its predecessor, the *true* "Joy".
