Product Description

Review

[ ... ]you turn the pages murmuring, "I want to eat that and that and that..." From sea bass in grappa ("my no-stress dinner party standby"), you move on to Alain Ducasse's "fantastically delicious" halibut in parchment, Elizabeth Frink's (yes, our sculptor) super-citric roast lemon chicken and the minimalist gravadlax ("almost no effort") from New York Times stalwart Mark Bittman.
--The Independent, 24 March 2011

Covering everything from cocktails to salads to breakfast recipes and the usual meats and veg recipes, this is a great cookbook to have in your collection. It is a huge book but the contents cover such a vast array of recipes. Collected from NY Times readers over the years, and tested as well with comments and tips from the author, already I have found it useful and I only just received it a few days ago.

For example, who would have thought sieving eggs before you scramble them would make such an amazing difference. I also made the most delicious beef recipe from a well known San Francisco Chinese restaurant that it's become my son's favourite meal ever he claims. There are hundreds of recipes here and I am sure, as I continue to go through it, I will discover not only more fantastic recipes but also great cooking tips.

If you love going through cookbooks for new ideas, recipes and discovering more about culinary history/practices then this is a must. I would have given it 5 stars but there are no pictures which I miss (the book is long now and pictures would have made it even longer so perhaps that's one reason). However, I am very pleased I ordered it and recommend it highly.

I have a lot of cook books and I think this is by far the best. The recipes for the chocolate cookies and the brownies are outstanding, there are so many things to cook that I doubt that I will ever make more than 20% of them
