Betty Crocker's New International Cookbook

Betty Crocker, Author Prentice Hall $18.95 (376p) ISBN 978-0-13-074378-7
Simplicity rules in this revised and expanded edition of one of the top three bestselling Betty Crocker cookbooks. Of the 450 easy-to-follow recipes culled from over 50 countries, more than 40% are new. Listed by their ethnic names, with English and phonetic pronunciation given, and quicker and easier to prepare than their original versions, recipes for these dishes, mostly down-to-earth country fare, retain their authenticity. Included are such well-known classics as French vegetable ragout (ratatouille), Russian salmon loaf (coulibiac), Irish stew and Swedish rye bread (limpa), as well as lesser-known African vegetable stew (vegetable biryani) and Hungarian fish with sour cream (betyar fogas). At heart a book intended for the uninitiated cook, the volume includes a glossary of foreign ingredients and terms, informative sidebar explanations, and a regional and general index. The color photography is unexceptional. 200,000 first printing ; first serial to Family Circle; Literary Guild selection. (Oct.)
