Good first modern/gourmet type cookbook

shoppergirl78 | Mar 19, 2007 07:19 AM

Hello, newbie here. I'm looking for suggestions for a good first cookbook... something that contains recipes that are easy for a beginner (explains steps and techniques), but with a modern, gourmet slant to it (I have the Joy of Cooking but don't get very inspired by it, a little too old fashioned for me).

I enjoy muddling my way through "gourmet" recipes, but it usually takes me a whole day to prepare something! I'm not well versed in the basics, so I want to learn so that I can put together a good meal on a weeknight with only 30-60 minutes of time to prep and cook.

Thanks for your help!
