I just love this recipe book! Jul 24, 2008
I just love how the authors experiment with every ingredient and give the pros and cons. It's teaching me the chemistry behind the ingredients in cooking and baking. They also review many products that helps when purchasing ingredients. Thanks guys!
Best Intenational Recipe: A Home Cook' Guide to the Best International Recipes in the World Jun 28, 2008
Got the book on a whim. It was so good that I gave it away as a gift and am purchasing another!
Its fatal flaw: it's only one book Feb 24, 2008
I find myself giving a weak rating to a Cook's Illustrated book. That's unusual -- I've only done it once before, for the wobbly but likeable Restaurant Favorites at Home, which was pretty good but severely blurred in its concept. For The Best International Recipe, my issue is different -- as intensive as this project was, there simply isn't enough substance in here for such an ambitious book.
Look, I bought it. It's a good book for what it has in it, and I'm not disrecommending it by any stretch of the imagination -- what is in here is worth having. But it's a shot of tequila when you wanted a 20 oz beer, a backrub in lieu of a hot night of lovemaking, a couple of cold chicken wings when you wanted the half-dark plate at Boston Market. Buy it now, and it will be worth it. But given that they did such a good job with Italian Classics and American Classics, something tells me it might be a good idea to drop a line to Brookline to see if they can come up with The Best Asian Recipe, The Best Central European Recipe, The Best French Recipe, etc. This one will do the trick in the meantime.
It is a Cooks Illustrated book. On its own, it's a good one. But it does rate a steep deduction in stars for just not being enough.
The Best International Recipe Jan 21, 2008
This is one of the best recipe books I have ever owned. The recipes are well written, generously illustrated and thorough. The people at Cooks Illustrated really know how to make cooking fun and guide a reader through the equipment, ingredients and steps necessary to make fantastic food. If you want to prepare some of the best foods from around the world, get this book.The Best International Recipe: A Home Cook's Guide to the Best Recipes in the World (Best Recipe Classics) (A Best Recipe Classic)
