This is a really great book. It has lots of really good recipes. I have made several of the recipes and love them all. It is a very well written book with tons of good recipes.3 of 6 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
your purchasers, especially me would appreciate a
larger font when publishing these books. I find it difficult
to read, which takes away from your very good recipes
This is an excellent book. I must admit though that I purchased it for one specific recipe that I had tried from the Cook's magazine. That was for the "oven-fried chicken". It is wonderful!1 of 3 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »
A great find!
I found one of the other editions of the series, that had only 100 recipes, at B&N during X-mas. I didn't purchase the book, but asked for it as a gift. I think I didn't receive the book last X-mas because of the high price tag. Searching on eBay and Amazon brought me to this edition. It's loaded with all kinds of recipes with detailed accounts of how they arrived at 'the best recipe'. I've tried three of the baked goods and EVERYONE loves the results! You can't go wrong if you follow the recipes exactly as written. The insight they give on the brands of ingredients, cooking untensils, pots/pans, etc, gives you even better results than you thought possible. The price on cooking.com is so good, I don't see why people go to Borders and B&N except to buy coffee and read magazines. This book will be the first one I grab whenever I need to make something that will be a hit with my guests!1 of 1 users found this helpful. Was it helpful to you? Yes | No Report Violation »

The New Best Recipe was recommended to me as being a fantastic cookbook. My sister-in-law was right! I love reading the recipe testing that was done to come up with the best possible way to prepare the food. I tried the classic macaroni and cheese first, and it was delicious. Glad I bought this book, even though I didn't need another cookbook.
