Best reference cookbook...ever

5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary C. on February 1, 2017
I've just received my copy, have read it cover-to-cover, and I love this book. I'm 70 years old, cooking is my passion, and I either own or have read hundreds and hundreds (thank you, public library) of cookbooks Among those are many classic reference cookbooks (Joy of Cooking, Gourmet, Bon Appetit), but this one beats them all in terms of size (1,062 pages), clarity (every single recipe comes with an explanation of how ATK tested various alternatives and why they came to this specific recipe), and comprehensiveness in terms of cuisines. Some chapter titles are clever ("Let's Do Takeout"), and follow through with such classics as Pad Thai. Others are, of course, the expected chicken, turkey, pork, etc. But also French, Italian, and Tex-Mex. Almost all recipes come with color photos of the completed dish. The "behind the scenes" copy consists of a few black and white photos scattered throughout. However, there are 30 pages listing equipment "favorites" (not full reviews) with my estimated average of 7 items per page--an invaluable reference, IMO. Also, there are 24 pages listing ingredient "favorites" with my estimated average 8 items per page. I was pleasantly surprised that the book includes so many equipment and ingredient recommendations. Finally, I've subscribed off and on to Cook's Illustrated, Cook's Country, have subscribed to their website, and have watched their TV shows for many years. They really mean it when they say, "we make all the mistakes so that you don't have to," and I have found their recipes invaluable over the years. I put a lot of Post-Its on the pages on my book for recipes that I want to try. Finally, for anyone who wants to improve their cooking skills, simply wants to dabble in, for example, "take-out" cuisine, OR needs more recipes for weeknight cooking, I highly recommend this book. Find a dish that interests you and then follow the step-by-step instructions you need to make your dish a success.

I gave this cookbook to a fan of the show as a birthday gift... it was a hit! In fact it is so large and comprehensive it seems overwhelming but if you view it as a great reference and don't try to tackle the complete volume then is is a wonderful addition to any cooks kitchen.
Worthwhile tome.

5.0 out of 5.0 by Jonesey Juryrigger on June 8, 2017
I was spooked by the price, but it is well worth it. Lots of recipes in there to try, if my wife will let go of it. She seems to be reading it cover-to-cover. We watch the show, even reruns, with eagerness. You can almost hear them speaking as you read. Great explanations of cooking chemistry that help develop your own practices with family recipes. This is going to sit right alongside our "Joy of Cooking" cookbooks. If the show ever folds, the final cookbook revision will be an enduring classic.
If you enjoy the TV show you will appreciate this cookbook

4.0 out of 5.0 by boywizard on January 25, 2017
If you enjoy the TV show you will appreciate this cookbook. The recipe instructions are clear. It is organized by category (pasta, tex-mex, soup, French cuisine, etc.) so I have found the index more useful if I have a particular dish or ingredient in mind. Be aware that this is a hefty tome; seven pounds. It takes up quite a bit of counter space. The print is rather small, so good light is desirable.
Format is not so user-friendly and recipes differ from earlier versions

3.0 out of 5.0 by Jim Presswood on August 20, 2017
We love the show but were disappointed with the format of this version; we have "The Complete Cook's County TV Show Cookbook... from all 9 Seasons" (2016) in paperback from the library, which has one recipe per page, opposite a full-page photo of the dish. This latest version, however, does not follow that format; rather, it has several recipes per page with infrequent pictures. Plus the recipes are not the same: the minestrone soup from the 'library' version, for example, looks tastier than the one in this latest version (which includes cabbage). We prefer the older version with the more user-friendly format.
Great for fail proof recipes for all the basics

5.0 out of 5.0 by May Ling Wu on November 15, 2016
All of the basic recipes you would want that come out great every time. For example Chicken Pot Pie, Tamale Pie, Fajitas, Roast Chicken, Meat Loaf, Beef Stew, Mac and Cheese etc. .Several popular ethnic recipes are included as well. With over a thousand recipes this cookbook has almost everything you want to make. If you are thinking of making something it is almost sure to have it.
Comprehensive and perfectly tailored for the American home cook

5.0 out of 5.0 by AllisonK on May 4, 2017
This is my vary favorite cookbook. Had it for a few mo tha and everything I've made has come out amazing. It was hard for me to buy a cookbook since the internet has so many free recipes, but this was worth every penny. I love that this cookbook seems to have such a huge variety of recipes- each of which they have spent considerable time working to perfect. There are many American staples as well as all sorts of international dishes. The best part is that if you want to make something non-traditional, they have perfected the recipe for the American home cook utilizing ingredients that can be found at most regular supermarkets. The book also does a good job of explaining techniques, and most of the recipes have a prologue that explains some necessary facet of what makes the dish work.
