Hey all,

I’m moving out of my parents house to go to college and getting a place of my own for the first time. Well, a place sharing with a few other people at any rate. I’m pretty excited about it and a little nervous too. I’ll miss the folks and the dog but it will be cool to have my own space and room of my own.

One of the things I am a little nervous of though is food. My mum is such an amazing cook and I know I’m going to miss her food. I can cook a few things for myself but nothing amazing and I don’t want to live on just beans and bread. So I’ve been looking into getting some cookbooks to take with me to the new house. I found a few online here - http://www.for-sale.com - but there are so many to choose from I don’t really know which ones to get.

I found ‘How to Cook Everything’ by Mark Bittman which seems like it could be good. Has anyone got this book? Got any other suggestions for good books for noob cooks?

Thanks for any help!

I don't think there is necessarily a "Beginner" cook book. Or at least not in my definition of what a cool book is. If anything you should look at different cuisines of cook books. For example a Hungarian cook book may have a lot more different ingredients or recipes that you aren't used to that you could find difficult, while an Italian book may be more familiar. Definitely check out a library or an online site for books though, as that's your best bet of finding something interesting.

I don't have to worry about cooking when I move out b/c 1 I'm too young and 2 my parents prepared me by teaching them easy cooking ideas and tips. When you crave for some of your mom tasty food call her and ask her how to make it. Directions from a book might not be as good as instruction from your Mom
