Review:

It's high time that Bon Appétit, one of our longest-running cooking magazines, published a collection of its recipes. The Bon Appétit Cookbook offers over 1,200 formulas--a vast selection that includes dishes for every menu stop and occasion, with sections on bread, burgers, pizza and sandwiches. Characteristically, the majority of the formulas--like Chinese-Flavored Fried Chicken with Green Onion Ginger Dipping Sauce, and Spicy Steak with Corn Soft Tacos--reflect an inventive, cross-cultural approach. A wide selection of sweets, such as Chocolate Chunk, Orange and Hazelnut Cookies, and Lemon Blueberry Shortcakes, is also offered; there's even a chapter on drinks.

Though most of the dishes invite good eating, and all are approachable, a surprising number, like Blue and Red Flannel Hash (with potatoes, hot sausage, pickled beets, and blue cheese) are overwrought or of questionable taste. Herbs are sometimes used excessively (a seafood-cake recipe for six calls for 1-1/3 cups of chopped cilantro), or in dubious combination, like rosemary and tarragon. Readers should also know that ingredients are sometimes not named in the methods, but are called for by number--for example, "add the first five ingredients"--obliging cooks to stop, search and count. In addition, recipe yields in a given chapter can vary by four servings or more. Though some of the larger-yield recipes, like that for cassoulet, are obviously meant for groups, others, like Greek Orzo and Shrimp Salad, which yields twenty servings, could be offered as appropriately for a family meal.

These things said, the book, which is photo-illustrated, will make a welcome addition to many cooking libraries, and should be especially handy when guests must be fed. Readers who have long loved and relied on the magazine will be particularly happy to have so many of its recipes in one place. --Arthur Boehm

From the Inside Flap:

Bon Appétit has been America's favorite food and entertaining magazine for decades, celebrating the culinary experience with recipes that have made cooking both a pleasure and a triumph for generations of home cooks.

Now, for the first time, The Bon Appétit Cookbook brings together more than 1,200 of the magazine's all-time, best-loved recipes for every meal and occasion. These recipes represent the very best of the magazine's sophisticated, foolproof style: easy-to-make dishes that incorporate a variety of regional and international influences—recipes that are delicious the first time out. Like Bon Appétit itself, The Bon Appétit Cookbook is, as Editor in Chief Barbara Fairchild puts it, "approachable, relevant, and fun." From Cajun-Grilled Shrimp to Artichoke and Mushroom Lasagna to Hot and Sticky Apricot-Glazed Chicken to Molasses Chewies with Brown Sugar Glaze, you will find dishes to tempt every palate.

The book is accessible and easy to use, and includes engaging headnotes and clear explanations along with nearly sixty illustrations of ingredients and techniques. You will also find invaluable tips, techniques, and advice from the experts at Bon Appétit. Throughout the book, they share test kitchen secrets in how-tos that demystify and simplify more than three dozen techniques—such as deveining shrimp, cutting corn off the cob, and frosting a layer cake.

Complete with thirty-two pages of gorgeous color photographs to tempt and inspire, The Bon Appétit Cookbook is a must for those who truly love to make and enjoy great food. Whether you're a novice cook or a seasoned expert, it is a book you will turn to again and again—for reference, for ideas, and, of course, for terrific recipes. Here's to making everything you cook a delight to prepare and a joy to eat: Bon Appétit!
