Well Organized and Curated Best Of,
This review is from: The Epicurious Cookbook: More Than 250 of Our Best-Loved Four-Fork Recipes for Weeknights, Weekends & Special Occasions (Paperback)
I'm a big fan of epicurious and internet recipes isites n general. But there are times when you just want to reach for a book and have the permanence and elegance of your favorite recipes in one spot. I suppose I could print out various epicurious recipes I've enjoyed and put them in a binder and make notes in the margin, but that wouldn't look as good (this is a handsome and tastefully designed book), nor would I benefit from the brain trust of epicurious that created this. Plus I like the idea of supporting the site, which has provided me with so many lovely meals.
This is a big book with tons of recipes. Most appealing to me so far are pea salad with radishes and feta, asparagus and hearts of palm salad, and grilled caesar salad.
In addition to being organized by season, you can also look up recipes by occasion (ex. fast meal on a weekday, something to wow guests, and holiday occasions). This is clearly a well thought out and carefully curated collection. I'll try to update as I try more recipes. Bon apetit!
