I picked up this 2006 edition at a discount book store and love it! This annual cookbook has 600+ recipes. I don't have a subscription to the magazine so I was glad to have a book that provides all the recipes I missed. For the price I paid for this cookbook I saved money compared to the cost of an annual subscription. The recipes are similar to the kind you would find in Gourmet Magazine, probably a little daunting for a beginning cook, but a treasure for a "foodie". There are some pictures and lots of wine advice including wine pairing suggestions which is nice! This is a great addition to a home cookbook library, and a cookbook that a serious home chef would use often.
Great,inspired cookbook.Being divivded into sections(brunch,pasta,beef&lamb...)makes it easier to find recipes for an ingredient you may have on hand.I especially appreciate the separate beverage section.
