To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I often am disappointed when I buy a big, expensive cookbook as I only try a few recipes. This, however is one of the best cookbooks I have come across. What the book lacks in pictures, it makes up for with the superb variety of recipes; from starters, meat free, various meats, cookies, cakes, pies and then some. I always refer to this and as an owner of 300+ cookbooks- this speaks volumes.
Excellent book the only complaint I have is that there could be more pictures, otherwise there is a ton of helpful receipes and I was suprised at the large size of the book and it's comprehensiveness. Great for any cook.
wird dieses Buch lieben! Ich koche gerne nach amerikanischen Rezepten. Da ich einige Jahre in USA gelebt habe, ist mir sehr wohl bewusst, dass die amerikanische Küche nicht nur aus Burgern, Tacos und Steaks besteht. In Marthas Buch findet man viele tolle Rezepte für Anfänger und Könner. Für die Umwandlung der Daten empfehle ich entweder eine App oder einen ausgedruckten Converter zu verwenden, so spart man sich die lästige Rumsucherei. Ganz besonders empfehlen kann ich die Suppen, Salate und Menü Kapitel. Da ist wirklich für JEDEN was dabei und es ist garantiert besonders!
There is everything to like about this cookbook. Well researched, excellently written and edited. All recipes are kitchen-tested, proofed and designed for a successful outcome. Martha Stewart is a meticulous and creative perfectionist in the recipes she chooses to publish. Not only are her cookbooks keepsakes but I think most are well on their way to become international classics.
Everyone raves about Martha and her recipes so I thought I would try it out. It underwhelmed. She calls this the New Classics but it's already somewhat dated (2013). There a few interesting recipes but nothing extraordinary for an experienced cook. In that sense, these are classics that won't offend anyone. There's not much on technique here so might not be the best for most novice cooks. Also,many items are meant for large groups so if you are cooking for a small family, you will need to pare down. I paid $2 plus $3 shipping but I would not have paid more. I am considering reselling.
As others have noted, the index in this book contains entries for both this book, in black ink, and for
The Martha Stewart Living Cookbook: The Original Classics
in blue. Well, since this book has a blue cover, you would (as least I did, and continue to) think the blue ink entries are for the blue-covered book. Not so. The index is pretty good; much better than my old stand-by, the
New Cook Book (Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbooks)
. Many index entries have useful "see also" entries.
There are a few (often just a few per section) helpful black and white photos, and some gorgeous color photos of some recipes. Like other reviews, I've noted some easy and some quite difficult recipes. The print on the pages extends into the gutter (the margin in the binding of the book) too much; when the book is open on the kitchen counter, part of the print is curved down into the binding a bit, making it a little less easy to read.
