Description: The large number of people between the ages of 20 and 30, called "twentysomethings" or "Generation X", are the target audience for today's music, television, even sports networks. But when it comes to cookbooks, they're ignored -- until now. Cook Something presents recipes so they are accessible to young, hip, intelligent people on-the-go. This cookbook will show "twentysomethings" that cooking is easy and fun.

The 90s are about choice, and that's what Cook Something is all about -- recipes that are flexible, that have several variations, that can be interpreted different ways to suit the cook's taste. In fact, the recipes are organized alphabetically, so foods that have been deemed "appetizer" no longer carry that label and can be eaten at any point of the meal, at any time of the day. At the beginning of the book there's an index, called Guidance Counseling, categorizing each recipe under several headings: cuisine, course, cooking time, ingredients, and degree of difficulty. This way, if the cook wants something Indian for lunch that takes 1/2 hour to prepare, using chicken, he or she can flip right to the recipe (and that craving for dessert at breakfast-time can be satisfied too).

Cook Something will also eliminate the intimidation factor; the section called Required Reading covers basic techniques, the Dos and Don'ts of cooking, and a list of foods to keep on hand.

With music videos, the internet, and CD ROMs a part of everyday life, this group could easily be named the "Visual Generation". Bright colors, movement, and a hip, trendy design are the earmarks of "twentysomething" style, and that's exactly what Cook Something will reflect.
