Food 52 - Genius Recipes Cookbook
This debut cookbook from Food52 Works, a new imprint with Ten Speed Press, is written by Food52's Executive Editor Kristen Miglore, based on her James Beard Award-nominated Genius Recipes column on Food52—a series that uncovers the recipes and tricks that change the way we cook.
This essential collection includes more than 100 foolproof recipes—some greatest hits from the column, some never before featured—from food luminaries like Julia Child, Nigella Lawson, and Michael Ruhlman, all photographed by Food52's own James Ransom. These dishes (many of them sourced from tips from the Food52 community!) range from the familiar (Marcella Hazan's beloved Tomato Sauce) to the innovative (Dan Barber's 1-Ingredient Crackers). Each recipe has something that sets it apart: a way of turning a cooking technique upside-down, or using an ingredient in an unexpected way, or just yielding a best-in-its-class standard for favorites like waffles or pan-fried chicken. In every case, these recipes will become your new classics.
“Culled from chefs, bloggers and food world legends like Julia Child and James Beard, these are dishes that are so smart they'll change the way you approach food, making you a better cook.” – Editors from Tasting Table’s “Kitchen Bookshelf
“Food52 Genius Recipes, is the hands-down winner of the dog-eared page contest — because it instantly dismisses what might be the most important question asked by a cook confronting a new recipe. Namely, will this work? Of course it will. How do we know? Because the dishes in this collection are genius, here defined as legacy recipes ‘handed down by luminaries of the food world.’” – Jenny Rosenstrach, New York Times editor
