The Best Cooks Are Home Cooks

Double Chocolate Espresso CookiesSecret Ingredient Beef Stew Simple Summer Peach CakeWishbone Roast Chicken with Herb Butter
These recipes prove the truth that great home cooking doesn’t have to be complicated or precious to be memorable. This book captures the community spirit that has made Food52 a success. It features Amanda’s and Merrill’s thoughts and tips on every recipe, plus behind-the-scenes photos, reader comments, and portraits of the contributors—putting you right in the kitchen with America’s most talented cooks.

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 03, 2011 – While working on The Essential New York Times Cookbook, Hesser (Cooking for Mr. Latte) and Stubbs realized that some of the best recipes come from home cooks, and launched—a site that encourages home cooks to share recipes and tips. Each week, they challenged visitors to come up with a recipe based on a certain theme or ingredient: best shrimp recipe, best holiday cookies, best baked pasta dish, and so forth. Here, they collect a year's worth of those recipes, accompanied by comments from fellow foodies, as well as tips and trivia. Grouped by season, Hesser and Stubbs highlight each week's winning recipe, including the story behind it, why it was picked, a short bio of the recipe's creator, and some encouraging words on why you should try the dish. Even readers with a shelf full of cookbooks will appreciate the book's broad, creative collection: from Pink Bolognese (a merging of the creamy vodka sauce with classic Bolognese), to a simple Ginger Sangria, to more ambitious fare, such as a stuffed manicotti with homemade pasta, DIY Merguez sausage, and a Caramelized Pork Báhn Mì sandwich. Cooks of all skill levels will find plenty of room to stretch.
