Synopses & Reviews
The Best American Recipes has rapidly gained respect as the most discriminating, inspiring, and genuinely useful collection available truly the years best. This volume ranges further afield than ever, and with glorious results. Series editor Fran McCullough turns to a health insurance newsletter for a versatile side dish, to a womens magazine for a family supper, to a travel Web site for a spectacular brunch, and to all the leading cookbooks and magazines.
"This compilation of recipes from chefs (Jean-Georges Vongerichten; David Waltuck, etc), personalities(such as Jamie Oliver and Bobby Flay) and magazine recipes isn't just random selection: it's a unique way to see what's currently happening in American food...The common denominator is comfort food, simple but sophisticated takes on American regional favorites that taste wonderful, look gorgeous ("We all have our inner Martha," writes editor McCullough, the author of Living Low-Carb) and are relatively easy to prepare. Mix and match menus as well as suggested wine pairings add to the fun. A delicious and delectable addition to any cookbook collection, this volume will be well-thumbed in no time." Publishers Weekly
