I got this cookbook this week and made the gougeres (from Juila) and the pork braised in milk and cream (from Kim) last night. Both recipes worked like a dream and my guests and I loved them! I have been a fan of Severson and Moskin for a long while now and I always read their articles in the NY Times. This cookbook not only has great recipes (there are a bunch more I am going to try), but it is also a great read. My favorite cookbooks don't just give you delicious recipes, but also tell an interesting, compelling story. This cookbook completely delivers. I love it!

I pre-ordered this cookbook from Amazon so I could get my greasy fingers all over it as soon as it hit the market and it's everything I was hoping for and more. The recipes are fantastic, as I expected, but I find that I've been reading it almost like a novel. The stories that accompany the Cook Fight recipes are personal and make this so much more than just another cookbook. Julia and Kim are such different people but you get a glimpse into their lives and personalities and by the end of it you feel like they're friends. My personal life feels far removed from NYC and working for the Times, yet when Julia talks about having her first child and the bewilderment and the breastfeeding and the solace that comes from just getting the fudge out of the house and eating a cookie that becomes way more than JUST a cookie, well, that resonates with me. As a mother, as a human being, as someone who takes pleasure and comfort from food. It's more than just a cookbook at that point for me and it's a fabulous cookbook.

The stories behind the recipes are as good as the recipes and the recipes have all been stellar and I've made a bunch. The milk braised pork was insane (the UPS guy caught me in the kitchen guzzling the leftover reheated sauce directly from the container - happy shame). The fiery sweet potatoes graced a Thanksgiving table this year. The domino potatoes, the cornflake chicken (I want to dip and dredge pretty much everything this way now), the salmon and cucumbers and raspberry vinaigrette, the apple pie. And the bacon fat gingersnaps have literally changed my life. I think of this recipe as my personal litmus test for future boyfriends and friends. They really were so good that my eyes rolled back into my head...I had a mouthgasm people. It was salty luscious bacon fat making sweet love to molasses and they made a tender, hauntingly sweet, beautiful little baby that I want to eat as much as humanly possible. If you can't get on the bacon fat snap train with me (vegetarians excluded) then I honestly just don't know what to do with you. Just get out.

Every recipe in Cook Fight looks intriguing to me, the variety is fantastic and the challenge aspect of the book is just fun. No recipe looks over fancified, even the fancy challenge. Everything not only looks like something I want to put in my mouth, but it also looks realistic enough for me to actually make and enjoy doing it. My spawn (6 and 9) have enthusiastically embraced and eaten every recipe so far. My BFF (aka my life wife) and I have started Sunday night Cook Fight challenge dinner parties. We pick a theme and pick team Kim or Julia and we cook, we eat, we laugh and we love. Really all the very best parts of life...

I really enjoyed the anecdotes and mini bios that both cooks wrote, in addition to the interesting recipes. I can't pick a winner
