Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is a best American recipe? It's simple but sophisticated.

It tastes exceptional.

It's one you want to make again and are dying to share with your friends.

It introduces a surprisingly easy technique or gives you a new way to use a favorite ingredient.

It produces the best possible version of a dish.

For this edition, Fran McCullough, one of the nation's most respected cookbook editors, and Molly Stevens, a cookbook author and contributing editor for Fine Cooking, searched through hundreds of sources and then selected the very best — 150 recipes in all.

You'll find recipes from the biggest names in food, such as the celebrity chefs Mario Batali and Bobby Flay; from esteemed cookbook authors, including Marion Cunningham and Deborah Madison; and from renowned food journalists, like Gourmet's Ruth Reichl and the New York Times's Amanda Hesser. You'll also get superlative recipes from home cooks, such as a scene-stealing side dish and an heirloom holiday dessert.

The Best American Recipes includes notes on the most popular ingredients, time-saving techniques, and the most useful kitchen tools. With crowd-pleasing recipes like Party Cheese Crackers, such weeknight suppers as Simple Salmon, and special-occasion dishes including Spice-Rubbed Turkey and Chocolate Truffle Cake, The Best American Recipes equips you with everything you need to be the most confident cook on the block.

Synopsis:

This compilation of recipes from books, magazine, newspapers, the Internet, and TV chefs--including Anthony Bourdain, Jamie Oliver, and Bobby Flay--isn't just a random selection: it's a unique way to see what's currently happening in American food, from the simple to the sophisticated.
