    5.0 out of 5 stars A magazine for those of us who like to 'cook simple' October 28, 2005
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    I started reading "Cook's Country"s predecessor, "Cook's Illustrated" by browsing through it in the grocery store line. I liked it so much I subscribed to it--a first for me, since I usually consider cooking a chore rather than a pleasure. I cook because I like to eat, and the take-out restaurants up where I live are crummy, fattening, and expensive. The editors of "Cook's Illustrated" explained everything, even down to the basics of chopping an onion, which is exactly what I needed.

    Now these same editors have come up with what I think is an even more useful magazine in "Cook's Country," (six issues a year) as the recipes appear to be even simpler--I guess that's where the 'Country' in the title comes in, as the editors use words like 'homey' and 'family-style' in describing their new endeavor. Those two descriptors usually signal 'easy to make.' It also seems to me that this new magazine is in direct competition with its predecessor, "Cook's Illustrated." Personally, I'm going to drop my subscription to "Cook's Illustrated" and keep "Cook's Country." The only thing I don't like about it is its awkward size (12"x10") which will make it hard to file.

    On the other hand, it lies open very nicely, so I won't have to hold it to the right page by propping tea kettles and pickle jars on it.

    The recipes in the first issue include steak fries, zucchini bread, and making up your own Shake 'n Bake (!).

    4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun, Nostalgic Magazine Full of Delightful Recipes September 20, 2008
    By LGrace
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    The few low reviewers about Cook's Country seem confused by this magazine's commitment to simple home cooking, and some of them have asked, "Why bother? Isn't that what Cook's Illustrated is all about?"

    Well, yes and no. Cook's Illustrated, in my observation, is geared far more to the urban or East Coast food lover, someone with a spouse or partner but no, or grown, children, and someone who entertains (as in "has dinner parties") with some frequency. The recipes are indeed simple and turn out beautifully, but they're not exactly the sort of thing most families would tackle on a Tuesday night.

    Cook's Country, on the other hand, seems to have as its demographic the home cook with a spouse and kids to feed, and whose parties run to the "child's birthday" or "backyard BBQ" or "family Thanksgiving" type occasions. It's just as accessible, interesting, and smart as Cook's Illustrated, but with a down-home, Midwest vibe. Think of CC as Vermont-dwelling CI's cousin from Topeka.

    Ultimately, the buyer should decide based on lifestyle which magazine is more practical. If your cooking is geared toward dinners for two and cocktail parties (or if you plan on buying this as an aspirational exercise but don't intend to make any of the recipes) by all means, subscribe to Cook's Illustrated. But if you are looking for inspiration for delicious weeknight dinners and simple family celebrations while juggling Susie's oboe lessons and Billy's tae kwon do class, look no further than Cook's Country.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Magazine! August 17, 2005
    Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
    My mother-in-law discovered this magazine while she was visiting and showed it to me. Neither one of us subscribes to any cooking magazines though we both collect recipes like fiends. However, we have both decided to make this magazine one of two we will be subscribing to (the other being Penzey's ONE). the layout is friendly and easy to read, the articles are informative without being obnoxious, and the ratings categories are great (latest edition did chef's knives and lemonades). Also very helpful is the back cover - it lists all the recipes and what page they are on, as well as showing some pictures. Great for when you're looking for a specific one and don't want to have to page through the magazine to find it! The recipes are such that an inexperienced cook would have no difficulty but an experienced cook would still enjoy preparing them. All-in-all, a great magazine!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Second Opinion November 29, 2005
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    I agree entirely with "starmoth". I subscribed to Cooks Illustrated and although it was beautiful and interesting the recipes were just a little over the top for me. I really like the kind of comfort food approach in Country Cooking but I also find the size a little awkward. If you really like macaroni and cheese and stew you'll love this magazine.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I too, like the LARGE size March 9, 2006
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    I'm not really a very good cook, however, this magazine grabbed my attention, just by the size alone! Not to mention it's the sister publication of Cook's Illustrated. The recipes are simple to follow, easy to fix, even if you're not a gourmet chef. (& believe me, I'm not!) What I like about the large size is it's easier for me to read, plus the whole recipe fits on one or two pages. It's nice to be able to put the open magazine on the kitchen counter, & not have to use all kinds of weights to keep it open, while preparing a scrumptous meal.

    The other thing that is nice about it, is that it's published 6 times a year, but on different months than Cook's Illustrated. That way, if you subscribe to both, you will have a new magazine every month of the year!

    Cook's Country debuted, I believe the beginning of 2005, so I hope it will be around for a long, long time.
