I received my book today and had to take a minute to write about it. If you're a fan of the show, I know you would like this book. It has beautiful color photos on every recipe including a photo on what can go wrong and suggestions on how to prevent these mistakes. There are helpful hints for preparation and products they recommend using. Plus there is a huge section in the back on shopping for equipment which shows what each utensil is used for ... from tools to cooking equipment and a small photo of each. There are also several food items listed and what each would be used for ... everything from soup to nuts. They even included an episode directory which lists what was cooked on that episode. I believe this book is a complete cookbook of all the recipes on the shows from season one through five. This would be a really great gift for the beginning cook or for anyone who likes to cook and bake. (Just a note: I didn't buy mine from Amazon, like I usually do, and they're selling it for a much better price. That'll teach me, huh?)

I have read reviews for this book (which I have and love) and the ATK Complete Cookbook. Many readers have complained that they can't find specific recipes. I wonder if they realize that these are two different cookbooks that accompany two different TV shows. For example, two people were looking for Pepperoni Pan Pizza and Triple Chocolate Cookies in the ATK cook book. But, since they were featured on Cooks Country, they won't be found in the ATK cookbook. Rather, the recipes are found on Cooks Country TV.com. But I think you have to pay to be a member and have access to all the recipes. Which brings me to another area: these two cookbooks come from the same pace, but unless you pay for each one separately, you can't have access to them both. Case in point: I have paid for a one year subscription to Cooks Country. I can look up recipes on that web site. But if it should happen that other recipes are available on ATK 's web site, I can only get them if I pay for a SECOND subscription. NOT FAIR!!!

Note to all----this review is for the KINDLE edition only. I had the older paperback edition of this cookbook and loved it. I decided to buy the kindle version of the updated book but was so disappointed when I tried to maneuver through it. There is no table of contents which means you have to scroll through the entire book to find recipes. I have requested a refund for this kindle edition and will be purchasing the paperback.

This is one of the best cookbooks around. I am an avid cook and this book is one of those rare books where you want to cook EVERY recipe! They are easy, yummy, and have ingredients any cook can find in their local super market. Thanks Cook's Country for sharing your hours of prep work, ideas, and product reviews with us lay people.

This is absolutely my most favorite cookbook of all time. I only recently discovered the Cook's Country television program, and I was blown away by their helpful techniques, foolproof recipes, and product reviews. I've come to learn that Cook's Country, America's Test Kitchen, and Cook's Illustrated is all the same company. Let me tell you, they do outstanding work.

What I love so much about Cook's Country--both this cookbook and their TV show--is that they test the heck out of their recipes! The result is that every single recipe they publish is absolutely foolproof. They make sure to use ingredients everyone can find (a good example is how they scratched rice flour from a recipe because it wasn't easy to find in most stores, instead they have you make your own rice flour by simply running Rice Krispies in a food processor), they keep classic recipes as close to the original favorites that everyone loves, but just fine tuning the techniques and ingredients to make sure the recipes aren't intimidating or unachievable by your average household cook.

Cook's Country explains each recipe, they tell you which methods/ingredients work best and WHY, and they look for solutions to common problems. In the back of the book, there is a helpful guide to TONS of kitchen gadgets, appliances, and all sorts of foods and ingredients. They tell you their favorite picks, they tell you why it was their favorite, and they even include runner ups in most categories in case you can't find that product in your region. You'll learn which can opener/pizza stone/blender is the best. You can look up which cake flour tested well. Find which brand makes the firmest canned beans. I also learned why I should use Russet potatoes in certain recipes and Yukon Golds in others.

I like this book very much because it has recipes in it that I will actually make! I have so many books that have only a few winners in them that it's refreshing to find one that has so many great recipes. One caution for those that aren't familiar with The Test Kitchen or Cooks Country is that the recipes are more labor intensive than the average cookbook. However it is for that exact reason that the food comes out so great.

This is a great add to any kitchen and is written in true Test Kitchen style. There are lots of color photos and illustrations to accompany each recipe. I watch the show on pbs and could not wait to get this cookbook as I am a fan of the sister show America's Test Kitchen. The index has proved to be useful and complete. Can't wait to cook some of these tasty dishes!
