Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Gourmet food purveyors King and Stott may have made a name for themselves with preserves and condiments, but with this third cookbook they prove they can also handle dishes as wide-ranging as Huevos Rancheros and Rack of Lamb. The well-rounded collection features hearty American fare with a modern flair; a typical recipe is Three Moms' Meatloaf, which calls for fresh parsley, thyme and rosemary, and includes tomato paste (no ketchup). Above all, the authors are not bound to tradition. Recipe introductions often clue readers in to the rationale behind a recipe ("Where is it written that all croutons must be made from leftover bread? Why not experiment with squares of polenta?") and "favorite variations" sections offer modifications to every recipe. Although it's initially strange that there's no appetizer chapter—considering the subtitle's emphasis on entertaining—many of the dishes in the "Seafood and Fish" and "Pasta, Potatoes, Bread" chapters would make pleasing hors d'oeuvres (e.g., Scallop "Chips," Grown-Up Potato Puffs, Tuna Tartare on Cucumber Rounds). This laid-back book deserves a warm reception from anyone who likes their food easy and delicious. 150 full-color photos. (Aug.)

Review

“This wonderful book comes from Jonathan, Jim, and Kathy’s love of cooking and good food. They have an uncanny sense of exactly what you want to eat and the recipes are really easy. Everything I’ve made is absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to work my way through the rest of the book.” —Ina Garten, author of the Barefoot Contessa cookbooks

I've enjoyed all the recipes I used, especially the salad dressings.

There are meaty dishes, fabulous seafood dishes, vegetarian dishes and most of them seem pretty light.

All the headnotes are entertaining and informative, and the recipes are completely approachable.

Let's get back to basics. I work full time and can't spend all day reading cookbooks and deciphering recipes. I have a personal rule: if the ingredients can't fit on one page, count me out. Stonewall Kitchen Favorites is so user friendly it takes the stress out of cooking. Take the rack of lamb with walnut-rosemary crust. Everyone in my family loves lamb but I usually don't dare to serve anything but a plain lamb chop.

The rack of lamb is so easy, there is no fear. And the incredible photographs are inspiring because you don't have to be a genious to achieve these results. Most of the recipes have variations which are a lifesaver because, let's face it, even with lists we all sometimes forget things at the store. The four cheese macaroni gives you so many options that if you have never heard of one ingredient you are sure to find another one you like. I never knew how to properly prepare mac and cheese without a mix but this is a real treat that has a gourmet flair and will also satisfy even the pickiest eater. The Coq au vin recipe is similar: a dish I love but have always been afraid to undertake in my own kitchen. Stonewall Kitchen provides a very easy map to elegant eating. All in all, the recipes are unique and delightful while the instructions are so user friendly it is like having a coach in the kitchen answering my questions as they arise!

What a wonderful cookbook. Every glossy photo will have you salivating for more! This book has a balanced collection of recipes for every diet. There are meaty dishes, fabulous seafood dishes, vegetarian dishes and most of them seem pretty light. The dessert collection is small but very appealing. I have to say the best part of this book is the simplicity of the recipes. Nothing too intimidating but still adventurous. Highlights:

Chocolate Crepes with Tangerines and Dark Chocolate Orange Sauce

Mediterranean Orzo Salad

Roasted Salmon with peas and edamame beans with a raw pea pesto

Salmon and ginger cakes with Orange-Miso dipping sauce

Walnut Pancakes with carmelized bananas

This cookbook is a great addition to any cookbook collection.

Just like in their last book, the folks at Stonewall Kitchens have done it again! Only this time, the photos are even more stunning. This book updates what basically amounts to all of my favorite dishes (for real - and none that I don't like - how did they come up with this list?) with fresh ideas and modern ingredients, and the photography is breathtaking . . .I get hungry just looking at it! I've gotten to the point where every time I have someone coming over for dinner, I just open Favorites . . .there's always something perfect for the night, and everything is interesting enough for company.

All the headnotes are entertaining and informative, and the recipes are completely approachable. MUST TRY: Almond-Crusted Challah French Toast, Classic Oyster Stew, Four-Cheese Macaroni, Rack of Lamb with walnut-rosemary crust, and any of the chocolate recipes (the brownies are PHENOMENAL). I'm trying the turkey recipe for Thanksgiving. There are also all sorts of fun party ideas (trios of devilled eggs, cream cheese, burrito party, etc.) that I keep using again and again. And lots of good tips, without the hoity toity cheffier-than-thou attitude that many cookbooks adopt these days.

My new favorite cookbook, for sure!

They've done it again! The folks from Stonewall Kitchen have taken time-off from making their gourmet jams and specialty foods to create another first-rate cookbook. It's hard to believe that so many old favorites can be dressed up with new twists. If you think your Grandma's meatloaf can't be improved: buy this book. If your Mom's recipe for roasted chicken is all you ever make: buy this book for a delicious surprise. If you're into classic cooking with up-dated, easy-to-follow recipes: buy this book. If you're a fan of Stonewall Kitchen's take on traditional food: buy this book for their versions of these favorite recipes. Or if you just want to feast on beautiful photographs of food and food presentation: buy this book. Just don't let Grandma see it.

The owners of Stonewall Kitchen specialize in updated versions of comfort food, adding condiments, preserves and spices to jazz up these American favorites, so Stonewall Kitchen Favorites is packed with seemingly familiar dishes spiced with new flavors and approaches. Here's a Chopped Greek Salad with Lemon Caper Dressing or a Spaghetti Carbonara with Basil Swirl. Even the lowly Waldorf Salad receives jazzy embellishment. Any who like the familiar favorites but desire more variety will find this a fine pick, packed with color photos throughout.
