"You can always tell a Bon Appétit recipe: It's a sophisticated twist on a beloved classic, and it's easy to make...our goal is to give you the cumulative expertise of Bon Appétit, with more than 1,200 recipes that will be delicious, first time out."—Barbara Fairchild

First launched in 1956, Bon Appétit is America's favorite and most widely read food and entertaining magazine, with a circulation of 1.3 million. Now, for the first time, The Bon Appétit Cookbook brings together more than 1,200 of the magazine's all-time best-loved recipes for every meal and occasion. The book is accessible and user-friendly—just like the magazine—and includes clear explanations and exclusive tips from the Bon Appétit test kitchen, along with 59 detailed illustrations of ingredients and techniques.

The recipes have been skillfully selected to represent the very best of the magazine's sophisticated, foolproof style: easy-to-make dishes that incorporate a variety of regional and international influences—recipes that are delicious the first time out. From Cajun-Grilled Shrimp to Artichoke and Mushroom Lasagna to Hot and Sticky Apricot-Glazed Chicken to Molasses Chewies with Brown Sugar Glaze, there are dishes that will tempt every palate. Complete with a gorgeous 32-page color insert and a simple yet elegant design throughout, The Bon Appétit Cookbook is a must for those who truly love to make and enjoy great food.

I have made many recipes from this book and have yet to find one that is less than excellent. In particular, I have prepared several items from the Cakes chapter with exquisite results. Keep in mind that these recipes may require more effort than the typical cake mix and canned frosting, but the results are worth it. This book is for people who love to cook and who don't mind impressing their guests, too. Living in a small town in the midwest, the only challenge I encounter is that some ingredients are not readily available in my area.

I have made about twenty recipes from this cookbook and have not liked any of them. My family and friends feel the same way. I have been cooking for 10 years and owned several cookbooks and this is my least favorite. I would not personally recommend this cookbook. Better Homes Cookbook is a much better purchase.
