For those of us who love Amanda Hesser's Essential New
York Times Cookbook, her updated version, adding 120 of
the most popular recipes from the last decade, is a gift from
heaven. These are recipes I'll use over and over again--and I'm
starting with Rao's meatballs!--Ina Garten
Smart, bright, and supremely practical, Amanda Hesser's Anniversary Edition of The Essential New York Times Cookbook is a cause for celebration--this book can teach you how to cook. Amanda's instructions are clear, her how-tos precise, her advice solid, and her range extraordinary--she covers everything from cocktails to cookies. The historical notes, fascinating timelines, culinary history, and personal asides are the proverbial cherry on top.--Dorie Greenspan
