HASH(0xa2308780) out of 5 stars "Best of the Best" Gets Even Better Sept. 24 2010
By S. D. Fischer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I own all of the previous editions of Food & Wine Magazine's Best of the Best Cookbook Recipes and have enjoyed reading them. 2010 is the best yet.

*PLEASE NOTE THE PHOTO POSTED AS OF SEPTEMBER 23RD IS NOT OF THIS EDITION. It is a cropped version of Volume 11 from 2008.*

This year's book benefits from two new features: wine pairings for each recipe as well as information on how to learn more about each author online (website, Facebook and/or Twitter).

Like previous editions, nearly every cookbook author provides an exclusive recipe (with only two exceptions this year). Many of the recipes have tips from the author (such as what type of bread to use for the chocolate bread pudding and the best method to reheat it). There were 58 full-page, color photos of finished dishes plus eight full-page, color photos of the chefs and/or scenery.

The book is well-organized and makes it really easy to find what you need. The 25 featured cookbooks are divided into one of six chapters (Comfort Food, Seasonal & Healthy, Grilling, Latin Tapas, World Food, and Italian). There is an index in which recipes are listed by the following categories (with the number of recipes for each category in parenthesis): Hors D'Oeuvres (7); First Courses (14); Pasta, Risotto & Vegetarian Main Courses (14); Fish & Shellfish (13); Poulty (16); Meat (20); Vegetables & Sides (15); and Desserts (14). There is also a traditional index which includes listings by ingredients (avocado, bacon, herbs, yogurt, etc.) as well as finished dishes (cakes, pasta, pies, soups, etc.).

The first chapter, Comfort Food, includes recipes from:

This is a fun way to preview some of the top cookbooks of the past year. My only suggestion for improvement would have been to include more vegetarian recipes, but that is not likely to be an issue for most readers.

I am sorry there aren't links to all of the cookbooks. Apparently you can only include 10 links for each review.

NOTE: I purchased this from another bookseller and have no tie to the publisher or the authors.

HASH(0xa2308870) out of 5 stars Not at all what it said it was March 28 2014
By Nancy W. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The ad for this book said it included a recipe that I have longed searched for. It DID NOT! Very disappointing! Now I have a book that has a lot of nonsense recipes that call for ingredients that only a seasoned chef would keep on hand. This book will go into a yard sale this Spring. Thumbs down on this deal.

HASH(0xa201bd68) out of 5 stars Good way to collect recipes from great chefs Feb. 7 2011
By S. Campbell - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has a good amount of photos (which I always find inspiring) and recipes from noteworthy chefs whether celebrity, restaurant or both. They also have wine pairing recommendations. I will probably buy every year that is published. I would also enjoy a Food & Wine Cookbook: Recipes from the magazine.
HASH(0xa201b840) out of 5 stars One of my favorite cookbook series! Feb. 16 2016
By Robin - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is one of my favorite cookbook series ever! The Pasta Fagioli recipe is absolutely delicious and we make it often. Such a great way to get a bunch of winning recipes from many of the country's best chefs, all in one place. I'm ordering every other volume now so I can have the entire collection!
