Even if your college-bound teen is as adept in the kitchen as s/he is with an iPod, this book is a must-have. And if the kitchen has been terra incognita for the past 18 years, not to worry. College Cooking starts from scratch and deposits the reader/cook in practically gourmet territory, with a dash of practical advice and humor along the way.

This is the perfect cookbook to have when arriving in a sparsely-equipped kitchen with very little money and very little cooking experience (although the finished dishes would never reveal that the cook was a newbie).

From an easy-to-understand rundown of basic ingredients and cooking techniques (cooking asparagus is different from cooking pasta or frying with oil) to necessary equipment and stocking a pantry, the book has the young cook off and running.

But wait until you scan the list of recipes. ''Survival Cooking'' lists incredibly-easy-to-make and easily-reheated things like Chicken and Rice, Baked Penne Pasta with Italian Sausage, and Barbeque Chicken Pita Pizza. Then there are stir-fry, curry, wraps, and various other ethnic recipes as well as ''Food for the Masses'' and menus for parties. The list goes on and on. I'm hungry just paging through this book and I just ate a huge lunch.

Even if you don't know a college-bound student or someone just setting up an apartment, College Cooking is a fine addition to your own cookbook collection. I will be getting a copy for myself!
