Amazon.com Review

Back in 1984, Stonyfield held a contest to solicit recipes from yogurt lovers. Out of 800 submissions, 300 recipes were selected and then tested in home kitchens to weed out the terrific dishes from the ill-conceived stinkers. The result, the 1991 Stonyfield Farm Yogurt Cookbook, is back in a handsome paperback edition, and the recipes today are just as good as they were when the book was first published.

Just because it's made with yogurt doesn't mean it's healthful, however: with a cup of sugar and two-thirds of a cup of butter, Pecan Orange Coffee Cake isn't exactly health food, so leave that notion at the door. These are recipes from people who like to eat, some of which are more wholesome than others. For those inclined to count calories and fat, the nutrition facts printed for each recipe make the choices simple.

Chapters are devoted to breakfasts and brunches, breads, smoothies, fresh fruit and yogurt, dips, spreads, sauces and dressings, soups, salads and side dishes, main dishes, and desserts. With this book on the shelf, you are likely to always keep a quart of yogurt in the refrigerator. And that right there is a step in the right direction. --Schuyler Ingle --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

Over 300 recipes from the Stonyfield Farm collection and Harrowsmith Magazine use yogurt as a foundation for everything from main courses to breakfast dishes and desserts. From Nutmeg Lamb to curries and skillet bakes, this is loaded with appealing dishes. -- Midwest Book Review

Meg Cadoux Hirshberg has put together a creative, varied, and inspiring collection of recipes, each including yogurt. She begins by telling readers why yogurt is considered to be a "miracle food", and after convincing us of the importance of yogurt in our diets, she then proceeds with the recipes, which are divided into chapters according to their category. Naturally, breakfast comes first, and these recipes were my favorites. They are easy to prepare, do not require too many ingredients or fancy equipment, and although they are not always low in fat, they do not call for refined sugar and, for the most part, have a high fiber content. There are many different variations on waffles, pancakes, and porridge. A chapter on bread boasts several different types of grains, the smoothie section is replete with new and fun ideas for bolstering your daily fruit intake, and the salads, dressings, dips, sauces, and meat dishes are all innovative and consistently delicious. Each recipe serves about three to six people and is followed by a nutritional analysis. I hope that you will enjoy this fabulous cookbook and its delectable recipes as much as I did!

One reviewer said the author neglected good foreign cuisine, but I didn't feel that way at all. Check the "inside the book" link to see a listing of the recipes to know if it's varied enough for you. I'm glad they have recipes from American as well as foreign recipes.

The recipes are gathered from chefs all around the country. I love that there are recipes for regular plain yogurt and some specifically for thicker, yogurt cheese. (Buy the yogurt cheese maker here, it's wonderful!)

Nice clean look. Thick book. I borrowed it from my library and then came here to buy a copy for myself.

I confess to buying this cookbook in a fit of over-organic enthusiasm in the midst of a love affair with Stonyfield Farm Organic Vanilla Yoghurt. I also confess to not having, in the seven years I have owned it, made a huge percentage of the recipes therein. However, I couldn't do without this cookbook - the recipes we do use have become staples in our lives. There are excellent muffin recipes we use every weekend, wonderful chicken dishes, including a chicken salad recipe I think about on long lonely nights.

What? don't you?

You have to make a special effort to locate this cookbook these days but I definitely recommend it to those people who love yoghurt, creative baking, and, of course, muffins. Their lemon yoghurt muffins are a hit at all of my daughter's school activities, and a hit for any and all of our brunches.

I have been cooking with yogurt for many years and consider this amazingly versatile ingredient a must in my kitchen. Since I am a longtime fan of Stonyfield Farm yogurt, I was really looking forward to using this book, which I received as a gift. After trying many of the recipes, however, I regret to say that "The Stonyfield Farm Yogurt Cookbook" really doesn't do justice either to Stonyfield Farm yogurt or to yogurt cookery in general. Although there are some good recipes, the majority are lacking in imagination, and the collection itself fails to take advantage of the extensive repertoire of wonderful yogurt dishes from around the world.
