Almost one million subscribers heartily agree: there’s always something delicious going on in Food & Wine. And it’s all here in the annual cookbook, which includes every recipe published in the magazine during 2006—more than 500 dishes accompanied by scrumptious-looking photographs. The contributors remain absolutely stellar—cuisine’s finest—including such cookbook authors, chefs and food luminaries as Jacques Pepin, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Paula Wolfert, and Eric Ripert. Mouthwatering recipes like Smokey Spiced T-Bone Steaks with Chilean Salsa (from Stephen Raichlen, author of Barbeque Bible), Spring Pea Falafel with Marinated Radishes and Minted Yogurt (from personal chef Nicki Reiss), and Fluffy, Buttery Cinnamon Rolls (Deborah Racicot of New York’s Gotham Bar & Grill) were tested on home appliances, making them easy to re-create. In addition, the volume includes 50 brand-new test-kitchen tips, as well as an extensive glossary of accessible wines. Here’s real food that real people who want to eat well can actually prepare; dishes that reflect the many ways we cook today.
