OrangeReviewStarIn her weekly "Genius Recipes" column, executive editor Miglore highlights unforgettable dishes perfected by such chefs and authors as Julia Child, Suzanne Goin, and Heidi Swanson. This inviting cookbook comprises 100 of the column's more unusual and popular recipes, grouped by course in seven chapters (e.g., breakfast, snacks and drinks, meatless mains). Most feature ingenious cooking methods—a recipe for crepes, for instance, cleverly disguises flour tortillas in a thin layer of egg and cream batter. Similarly, excellent and iconic recipes for no-knead bread, hummus, broccoli cooked forever, and crispy-skinned fish will introduce home cooks to techniques they'll want to use again and again.
VERDICT Miglore's addition to Food52's growing list of cookbooks is a treat for readers who enjoy casual gourmet food.
