Some Good Finds,
This review is from: In the Kitchen with A Good Appetite: 150 Recipes and Stories About the Food You Love (Hardcover)
I am admittedly unfamiliar with Ms. Clark's column, and picked this book up on a whim. Though her personal anecdotes were cheerful and appropriately applicable to the recipes, they were not what I was looking for and somewhat detracted from my opinion of the book.
There were some great recipes tucked within the pages, and it was well worth flipping through to find and experiment with them. That said, I didn't feel like I got very much out of the book in relation to its overall length. Many recipes seemed too taste-specific in a "trendy New Yorker" fashion, and just didn't appeal to my personal preferences. I'd flip through a copy of this if possible before you decide to buy it to make sure its right for you.

While I like this book quite a bit, there is definitely a "trendy New Yorker" feel to it. I'm neither trendy nor a New Yorker, so that aspect of the book is novel and entertaining to me.
