The Best Cooks Are Home Cooks
Accomplished food writers and editors Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs had a mission: to discover and celebrate the best home cooks in the country. Each week for fifty-two weeks, they ran recipe contests on their website, Food52.com, and the 140 winning recipes make up this book. They include:
These recipes prove the truth that great home cooking doesn’t have to be complicated or precious to be memorable. This book captures the community spirit that has made Food52 a success. It features Amanda’s and Merrill’s thoughts and tips on every recipe, plus behind-the-scenes photos, reader comments, and portraits of the contributors—putting you right in the kitchen with America’s most talented cooks.
The comments by the creators of the recipes and the authors are VERY helpful.
They really are recipes that most good home cooks can make, although some of the ingredients might be a tad tricky to find depending on where you live.
The Food52 Cookbook has become one of our top go-to books when we want to do something more than turn on the crockpot.
