The Home Cook: Recipes to Know by Heart: A Cookbook Review

The all-in-one cooking bible for a new generation with 300 recipes for everything from simple vinaigrettes and roast chicken to birthday cake and cocktails.

For Alex Guarnaschelli--whose mother edited the seminal 1997 edition of The Joy of Cooking, which defined the food of the late twentieth century--a life in food and cookbooks was almost predestined. Now an accomplished chef and author in her own right (and mom to a young daughter), Alex pens a cookbook for the way we eat today. For generations raised on vibrant, international flavors and supermarkets stocked with miso paste, harissa, and other bold condiments and ingredients, here are 300 recipes to replace their parents' Chicken Marbella, including Glazed Five-Spice Ribs, Roasted Eggplant Dip with Garlic Butter Naan, Roasted Beef Brisket with Pastrami Rub, Fennel and Orange Salad with Walnut Pesto, Quinoa Allspice Oatmeal Cookies, and Dark Chocolate Rum Pie.

    I have been reading cookbooks for years and leaving them off Goodreads. Stealth mode no more! I’ve decided that if I’m counting graphic novels now (I am), then I’m counting cookbooks. This was a...

    I love watching Alex Guarnaschelli as a judge on Chopped or cooking as an Iron Chef. But, this cookbook is not geared toward professional chefs, it's geared toward The Home Cook, hence the title. It's...

    An eclectic mix of American, Italian and Asian recipes haphazardly arranged by sometimes the ingredient (The Onion Family), sometimes by the meal (Soup for Dinner), sometimes by category (Sauces & Dre...
