More than Your First Cookbook
by Barry Beacom

Every year, thousands of young people graduate high school or college and find themselves on their own for the first time. Amid all the excitement and freedom that comes with this fresh start, many of these newly independent people will find themselves out of their comfort zone when it comes to one critically important area—food.

Barry Beacom draws on almost forty years in the food industry to collect the recipes, tips, anecdotes, and life advice that make up More than Your First Cookbook. From safety and sanitation to menu planning and budgeting, Barry walks new cooks through all the basics of food preparation. A great gift for children and grandchildren just beginning to cook for themselves and a useful reference for more experienced cooks, this cookbook offers readers 125 mouthwatering recipes to match all tastes and abilities. Barry believes that cooking should be fun and personal, so all the recipes leave room for experimentation. There are even tips on how to make a few of the dishes fit into a vegetarian diet.

Breakfast, soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees, sides, and desserts are all covered, along with a few extra odds and ends. Whether you’re looking for the right way to set the table for a formal dinner, you want to take your grilling skills to the next level, or you just want to figure out how many teaspoons are in a tablespoon, Barry will help you find the answer. Barry Beacom has written a book that will truly be More than Your First Cookbook.
