As a side note, I basically learned to cook from watching this show. My mom gets so mad that I cook more with their recipes than with hers. I recommend subscribing to their website so that you can have access to their recipe videos. Aside from recipes they also offer great product reviews for cookware, knives, gadgets, kitchen appliances, etc. They'll tell you which ones work the best at the most affordable price. Affordable meaning that, in contrast to most cooking magazines which get paid to promote the priciest products, they only recommend products that the average consumer can afford. For example, they will tell you why the $50 dollar toaster they recommend works better than the $200 toaster with all the bells and whistles that nobody needs on a toaster and that don't help it toast bread any better anyway. But they'll also explain that you should avoid the temptation to buy such and such brand $20 toaster because it only toasts one side of the bread. I don't think I've ever been disappointed with one of their recommended products that I have purchased. They also do taste tests and determine the best brands of prepared food products. So you don't have to try 5 different brands of hummus, or brownies, or broth, or curry powder to find a good one.
I highly recommend all of their cookbooks and website subscriptions.
the Brisket is the reason i got this book, a neighbor made it for a B.B.Q. and I had to have it. I have since found other recipes that i use to impress the in-laws, my church, my neighbors, my co workers and well anyone i want to impress.
I will never admit this anywhere else but the Cheesecake recipe in this book is my "secret recipe that i will never share with another living sole that is not family and well...you the reader.
oh and the creme brulee is fantastic. when I make this my wife will not let me share it with anyone upon pain of death. this one is my personal favorite. just make sure to read through the recipe thoroughly before you start. I have since made notes in my copy to help make things go smother
Every recipe begins with a foundation. For example, instead of just laying a recipe for meatloaf, they'll tell you what they like and dislike about meatloaf in general, and make it clear what their idea of a "good" meatloaf is. Then they explain what worked and didn't work to achieve that meatloaf. Why does that matter? Because that understanding helps you to tailor recipes as you prefer, and will inform whatever else you make.
After a few years of learning from this ATK cookbook, I'm amazed how easily I can now whip up a meal without a recipe. The recipes are terrific, but the book itself is an education. Also, if you're like me and like to read cookbooks, you'll really enjoy this or any cookbook from ATK!
