Best of the Best Cookbook Recipes

Food & Wine Best of the Best Cookbook Recipes, the best recipes from the 25 best cookbooks of the year, by Food & Wine Publications, 2010.


Lemon icebox pie, chocolate bread pudding with salted caramel, Turkish baked eggplant with chile, feta and mint, burnt carrots with goat cheese and arugula, chipotle-deviled eggs, cafe au lait creme brulee.
Comments: Did I really pay $39 for this cookbook that was sent to me by my credit card company? I had meant to return the offer in its envelope, but forgot to do so, and so this book arrived. I opened it, looked, and decided to keep.

Squash ribbon salad with goat cheese is something I could easily make. I have the grater/slicer to sliver the squash/zucchini. And the pork chops with plums and Chinese 5-star spice....I think I could manage that one too. Forget the roast cod with anchovies and beet puree.  Sounds wonderful, but I'm allergic to cod. The other recipes I'm willing to try though.

  3. You lost me after chocolate bread pudding. And ruin crème brulé with café au lait? No. Sorry, does not sound like a cookbook I would use.

  10. It sounds very good but isnt it rather expensive?

  11. Mystica: In fact, amazon sells it for about half the price that I bought it for, from Amex. Had discarded the original packaging and return address, etc. so it was easier to keep it, just this time!
