The first thing I looked for in the book was Pepperoni Pan Pizza, Season Eight, Disk three, first show, if you own the DVDs, as I do. It's not in there. Yes, there are pizzas, but not the recipe I wanted to make. The dough for the others is different, as is the sauce. Other than that, I'm all set. For a book which promises every recipe from every show, being 0 for 1 was not a pleasant surprise.
It's conceivable that the Pizza Dish is in there, please flame me in the comments, so long as you specify the page (it's not under Pizza, and it's not in the Italian dish section where the other pizzas are). I say that because the second recipe I wanted, from the same DVD, was a kuchen I plan to make tomorrow. Look up kuchen in the index, no go, look in the table of contents instead and, ah, there it is! They called it New York Style Crumb Cake in the show, so ... you find it under "N" in the index. How convenient!
This is a common flaw with ATk books (e.g. the season 9 recipe book I also have). They give an ordinary recipe a spiced up name, which by itself is all well and good. But then they list the thing only under the fancy name. They'd call an apple pie "xanadu" then list it under "x". The one thing I'd have expected is an episode list with a page reference for each recipe. It would have added 5-10 pages to a very large book. They list only the recipes for season ten. This would have helped find episodes as well, if you locate a recipe you'd like to make. I found Breaded Chicken Cutlets, and cannot find online which season it's from, so although I probably own the DVD, I can't watch it without starting up many disks and plowing through til I see it.
If you plan to flip through recipes, or when you can find what you're looking for, the book is fantastic, and the recipes are wonderful. They certainly didn't leave out many, the book is huge and heavy, with many nice photographs, equipment lists, and grocery lists. But, it does not do what they say it does - include every recipe - and the index is best described as jesuitical.
The recipe for my favorite "Triple Chocolate Cookie" (which feature melted bittersweet chocolate chips) is not included. Ironically, these cookies were featured in the ATK episode entitled "Cookie Jar Favorites"--the title of the cookie chapter of this book. The previous poster mentioned a pan pizza recipe featured in Season 8 which was also not included. That's at least two recipes missing--who knows how many others?
One of the other flaws of this book is that it is missing an index of all of the recipes for each show by season. However, if the publishers were leaving out recipes, then I can understand why they would leave out such a list. Including an episode-by-episode list would surely draw attention to the fact that this book is not nearly as complete as promised.
This book does not contain every recipe from every show. If that's what you are looking for, as I was, then you will be sorely disappointed.
Only downside - page numbering is very small. Even with my readers on, the page numbers are hard to distinguish.
