I have been a subscriber to Canal House Cooking since the beginning and have always keenly anticipated each issue and have found them a joy to cook from. When I received this book, I was initially disappointed as there seemed to be a number of recipes that I already had from my subscription. However, as I spent more time with the book, I discovered much that was new and inviting. The recipes are wonderful and very dependable. I made their stuffing/dressing for Thanksgiving and it was delicious. I have made many meals out of Canal House and everything has been excellent.

This is one of the most gorgeous cookbooks I have ever seen. Unfortunately (and I will not let it be reflected in the review) the compendium is really of the last seven volumes of the authors subscription book/magazine effort. I have not done a one to one count of the recipes from the seven volumes but have recognized many.

I don't really care, though I wanted to say it up front in case you wanted to do what I did which was read everything these two women were ever involved with!

The photography is beautiful, the stories with the recipes are interesting, like letters from a girlfriend telling you what she made for supper last night. I love the feeling I get when I read the recipes and when I make their food. As I have said in another review they can get pretentious but this book seems to fit with that foodie superiority better than the handbook sized volumes of the series which is meant for "home cooks".

This stunning book is beyond that description and yet at the same time it totally fulfills it as well.

The women (who are real-life BFF's) cook in the small studio on two apartment size stoves without a microwave, very little counter space and a big table that is where they dine and prepare.

It's not a large space, just enough for two cooks, really and lets you know that everything in the book can be handled in the smallest kitchen without any trouble.

The food ranges from simple (reminding me of a lot of Nigella Lawson's first books) to a bit complex (not going to be making homemade pasta anytime soon, sorry) but all the recipes are doable by a seasoned cook.

This is not a cheffie cookbook, though it does have some cheffie elements, it's still on a "cook" level.

If you like the little canal house books that they put out three times a year, then you'll like this. This book has bigger pictures and more recipes. It goes by month, and covers the entire year. The Canal House books are all fantastic and well worth getting (I am lucky enough to have them all!).

I love this book. It's inspiring, elegant in its simplicity, as well as practical. Most of the recipes use easy to find ingredients, so the book has great suggestions for everyday cooking.

I love the Canal House blog and this puts it into your hands. The photographs are stunning, the recipes are easy and fresh and I love that they are categorized by the month of the year. Should be a "must have" in any food enthusiast's library.

I got this as a gift for my mom who religiously follows recipes as written and she has been cooking from it since. The recipes work, are for the most part simple and easy to follow, and so far even the pickiest eater in the family has enjoyed the dishes from it.

Lovely recipes with great photos. I love how wide ranging the recipes are and that because they are organized by month, you are encouraged to eat seasonally.
