Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Storey is the cofounder of Storey Books, which publishes "country cooking" books, gardening guides, and other practical titles, and she's also the mother of three and the grandmother of eight. Many of these 500 recipes are family favorites, while others come from popular Storey authors. Time-honored, as the subtitle says, or dated, depending on your point of view, they include such old standards as Seafood Newburg (with Velveeta) and Frosted Lettuce Wedges; and many of the recipes are available in other standard sources. Perhaps the most useful parts of the book are the introduction and the sections on "Arts of the Country Kitchen" and "Arts of the Country Home," which include illustrated guides to techniques and terms, equipment and ingredients, preserving, cheese making, crafts, gardening, and more. For larger cookery and crafts collections.

When I got my first apartment, I bought The Joy Of Cooking, thinking I could make as much of a mess in the kitchen as I wanted without worrying about a roommate seeing it. All I wanted to do at first was make a good beef stew (my own trials were OK, but nothing I'd share with anyone). Well, in The Joy Of Cooking, the task was comparable to building a nuclear power plant from scratch. Fortunately, I got this book for Christmas that year (2 months later) and have since made all sorts of dishes I wouldn't dare to try with the recipes from that "other" book. Beef strognoff - fewer than 10 ingredients. Mac and cheese - 6 ingredients. Cheesecake - 4 ingredients. And they all taste great! I'd give this book 10 stars if it were possible.

This is a must have recipe book for anyone who has even the slightest inclination towards cooking. The recipes are easy to follow, easy to make, and absolutely scrumptious! Ms. Storey explains everything from cooking utensils to cooking techniques- this is one treasure of a recipe book ;)

I have hundreds of cookbooks, but this is my favorite. I usually only buy hardcover recipe books with lots of photos, but this book contains such wonderful recipes and useful information, that I don't miss those features at all. If you are a beginning cook or an experienced one, like me, you will love this book.

This is another wonderful book by the Storeys. There is a collection of great recipes for every occasion, as well as information about how to make your own cleansers, a few nice crafts, even some info about canning, storage, and pickling. I love this book and have had great success with what recipes I have made from it so far. The directions are easy to follow, and there is definitly no shortage of great recipe ideas. A definite winner!

Just received my second copy of this book. I literally wore out my initial copy that I got 10 years ago to the point that it was falling apart. This is a frequently used book, because the recipes are delicious! There are many good recipes, but Sally's Best Chocolate Cake and Chocolate Frosting is the best!! I think that I would agree with a previous reviewer that she could have cut down on a lot of the narrative and put in more recipes, but that is my only criticism.

If you are searching for a book to give a novice cook, or for a new addition to a seasoned cook's collection, "500 Treasured Country Recipes" will delight them both! While the book is written in a warm, down-to-earth style that feels like home, it is much, much more than a "country" cookbook. It is really a hefty, charmingly illustrated, all-inclusive volume of cookery, crafts, housekeeping, gardening, and useful advice. Written by Martha Storey and friends (an impressive roster of talent featured as contributors at the book's end), this expansive resource of recipes and more offers tempting treats to please every palate. On the savory side, you'll find dishes like "Zucchini with Mozzarella and Parmesan", which begins with bacon, onions and garlic sizzling in the skillet. "Southwestern Cranberry Sauce" blends the flavors of fresh cranberries and jalapeno peppers, and refines them with sugar and seasonings. "Onion & Mushroom Gravy" made with rich pan drippings, onions, mushrooms and seasoned stock may cause you to forgo a formal meal and stand at the stove dipping chunks of bread into the gravy pan. The desserts are delicious, decadent, and downright divine. Try to resist "Soul Satisfying Rice Pudding", "Baked Bananas in Maple Rum Sauce", or "Blueberries Romanoff". I won't even try to resist--I surrender! You'll also find detailed, illustrated instructions for making butter, cheese, beer, wine, and even soda pop. If you're a crafter, you'll really enjoy the sections featuring handcrafts, holidays, and homemade gifts. I don't have enough words or review space to detail all that this wonderful book has to offer. I will just say that it is indeed a "treasure", and you will reach for it time and time again.

This worthy cookbook, along with the usual chapters on soups, salads, entrees and sweets, offers sections on kitchen know-how, tools and staples, as well as seasonal and holiday suggestions. Carryouts are here, including picnics, potlucks and bake sales; so too are kitchen arts, encompassing making yogurt, cheese, jams, pickles and curing meats. A chapter on kitchen crafts and kitchen gardens concludes this fascinating "Storey" of a kitchen from a skilled Vermont cook, Martha Storey.

I've owned this book for quite some time. It is one of my favorites out of all my cookbooks.

I love how so many recipes have a sweet little family story to go with it. I love how nothing in here is complicated. I love how it encourages me to make my own vinegars and cheese and sausage. I love how it tells me what I can make from foraged items in the wild, should the need arise. I love how it has recipes for homemade cleaning products and beauty aids. This book is entertaining, practical and useful.
