    This is one of the those cookbooks that you buy if you can only buy one cookbook. It's comprehensive, with clear illustrations, mouth watering photographs and lots and lots of recipes. It'll tell you what equipment you'll want to have in your kitchen, and how to do all sorts of interesting things, like prepare an artichoke and blanch vegetables. The one downside is this cookbook is 792 pages and that's a big, heavy cookbook.

The one downside is this cookbook is 792 pages and that's a big, heavy cookbook. Some of the recipes call for more effort and slightly more sophisticated ingredients but there are the usual classics in here as well. If you already own a comprehensive cookbook like The Joy of Cooking, then you don't need this one. But if you like a good cookbook with lots of good ideas just because you like cookbooks, go ahead and make room for this one.

    T'was a gift from my mom and one of my most referred to cookbooks, I have made several recipes from here that were fantastic, particularly the chicken with roasted lemons. Sometimes the ingredients can be a bit fancy, such as pomegranate molasses.

    This is one of the best cookbooks I own. Every single thing I've made has turned out perfect and the recipes are great for entertaining. Try the Scalloped Potatoes with Goat Cheese and Herbs de Provence (p. 424) with the Roast Tenderloin of Beef with Mushroom Port Sauce (p. 281) Yum! If I had to take only one cookbook with me, this would be it.

    I loves this cookbook, I does. It's sometimes snotty, frequently involves prohibitively expensive ingredients, and still manages to remain true to the food...and not to the fads. That isn't to say that the new Bon Appetit gastronomic bible doesn't rely heavily on Asian fusion, pomegranates, and all things ginger, but the recipes are broad enough - and flexible enough - that almost any foodie could find dozens and dozens of fun new dishes to tickle their fancy.

That said, I don't recommend the cranberry, chocolate, and ginger trifle. It doesn't taste good. But that's the only recipe that's flunked for me, so far.

    I've never been disappointed in a recipe from this book. When I have company, I always pull this out and try something new, even though the rules say to use a tried recipe, its just too fun to experiment! Each time the food has received rave reviews. It relies on whole foods, real garlic, butter, cream and I just make sure my ingredients are quality, organic and fresh.

    actually the best thing you could do is get the orange book and the green book by Fairchild The Bon Appetit Cookbook [orange] The Bon Appetit Cookbook: Fast Easy Fresh [green] the pair are one of those books that the more you study it over time, the more you appreciate it think of it as a mid-way point between Craig Clairborne's 1962 New York Times Cookbook with the Green Martha Stewart one - The Martha Stewart Cookbook: Collected Recipes for Every Day from 1995. half-way between traditional and weird, actually the best thing you could do is get the orange book and the green book by Fairchild The Bon Appetit Cookbook [orange] The Bon Appetit Cookbook: Fast Easy Fresh [green] the pair are one of those books that the more you study it over time, the more you appreciate it think of it as a mid-way point between Craig Clairborne's 1962 New York Times Cookbook with the Green Martha Stewart one - The Martha Stewart Cookbook: Collected Recipes for Every Day from 1995. half-way between traditional and weird, but not too traditional, and not too weird I think of the shiny orange and green set as probably the best collection of recipes by the ton for the 2000s decade

    I'm looking forward to trying out more of these recipes! The layout of the book is very nice. The recipe titles are orange, nice and bold. The ingredient list is in bold as well. I wish that there weren't recipes that required a page turn. Nice photos.

    This is the ultimate cookbook! It's so thick that I've been able to get to only a handful of recipes, but they've all been delicious, and simple to make too!

    A pretty basic deal that's proven super tasty so far. And it comes with a free year-long subscription! I like more pictures and narrative in cookbooks, though.
