Dinner at Grandma’s house was never about fancy dishes and fussy presentation. It was about good, simple food prepared with skill and — yeah I’ll say it — with love.
You can’t get love from a cookbook. But if you want the recipes, and a bit of help with the cooking skills, the best thing you can do is … go visit your grandmother.
What, you thought I was going to tell you to buy this book? Of course I’m going to tell you to buy the book. As long as you understand that it’s only second best.
But maybe Grandma isn’t around. Or maybe you’ve got the Grandma whose idea of cooking is a TV dinner and a bottle of scotch. Hey, I’m not here to judge, I’m here to help.
That’s where How To Cook Like Your Grandmother comes in.
Cooking is more than just recipes.
That’s because Grandma’s recipe cards were just notes she took for herself. She already knew how to cook, so she left out some steps. Heck, she even left out some ingredients. Like salt. She already knew you need it in everything, so she didn’t even think to mention it.
We asked Nana to show us how to make her raviolis. We told her, “Now you’ve got to tell us everything you’re doing so we can write it all down.” It went something like this:
“Wait, what’s that you just added?”
More bread crumbs.
Because it needed more.
What? You’re giving me a “look”.
“Okay, well how much did you add?”
[holds up a handful] About that much.
Good luck writing that down.
How To Cook Like Your Grandmother puts the missing steps and the missing ingredients back in, and ties it all together with step-by-step instructions that get you through the first time.

But I’ve never been able to cook … What if I mess up? … What if I don’t have the right tools? … How do I know what fresh peaches should look like?
Whoa, slow down a little! First, let’s get this out of the way: If you can drive a car, you can cook.
Would you try to take driving lessons from an Indy car racer? Of course not.
So why do you think you can learn to cook by watching a French pastry chef on the Food Network?
This is the part where someone in the back points out, “Well my grandmother was a French pastry chef.” Good for you. Did she teach you baked macaroni and cheese? How about meatloaf? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
Besides that, you can’t eat “fancy” every day without getting tired of it. I can eat a ham and cheese sandwich for lunch ever day for a week. Oysters Rockefeller? Eh, once a week might be too often.
Basic cooking needs basic tools.
You’re not going to need hundreds of dollars worth of special equipment before you can tackle these recipes. No bain marie, no mandoline, no salamander … Yes, those are all kitchen tools. No, you won’t be needing any of them.
If you’ve got a couple of pots and pans, one good knife, and a willingness to follow directions, you’ll be cooking like a grandma on day one.
Well … you really should buy a meat thermometer first. You can predict about how long it should take to cook a hunk of meat, but you need to actually check it to know.
See? That’s the kind of tips you’ll find in How To Cook Like Your Grandmother. Because that’s what Grandma would be telling you if she were teaching you this stuff herself.
The printed version is in black and white. I could claim I’m “harking back to the kind of cookbooks your grandmother used to use.” But that wouldn’t be true. The fact is, this book would have to cost four times as much to print it in color.
What you get instead is a spiral-bound book that you can lay flat on the counter while you’re cooking. You’re supposed to use it, not just look at it. Sure, I like when people say my food looks good. I like it better when they say it tastes good. So … more recipes, no color.
