I was eager to get this because I have the first edition and use many of the recipes, and this was expanded. While I love the new arrangement, what ruined it for me was that they deleted the white cake recipe. I mean really--how many freaking chocolate cake recipes do you need? (I know--many people will say you can't have too many, but I'm afraid I can't agree. Sorry!) So now I have both editions. I still like the explanations for how they came up with the final recipe and their choices, and love the tips and product recommendations. I recommend this for someone who has some cooking experience and is looking to expand their recipe collection.

If cooking were a religion this book would be the bible. You have to take the time to read the comments before each recipe as it's a wealth of information. I'm an avid cook and have been since i was 13 (I'm now almost 50). I love cooking and I thought I knew alot.....wrong. I've learned a ton with this book and I've now subscribed to their website to take classes, order other books and get more recipes.
