Voracious. Apr. 2024. 640p. ISBN 9780316538688. $45. COOKING
The James Beard– and Emmy Award–winning team at Milk Street is back with a collection of 365 recipes that showcase their bold, flavor-forward approach to cooking. The focus of the book is on the savory side of cooking, with recipes for everything from salads to burgers and sandwiches. Viewers of Milk Street’s popular PBS cooking show of the same name will recognize some of the recipes offered, including their game-changing recipe for fettuccine alfredo. Along with the recipes are tips and techniques for shaking up one’s cooking methods, including using acids in cooking, correctly blanching vegetables, knowing which knives are necessary, and five secrets to world class pizza. Building-block recipes for things like homemade mayonnaise are also included, and even a tried-and-true old standby like slow-roasted tomatoes gets a Milk Street twist—add some tomato paste to boost the rich tomato flavor—that sets it apart from its competitors.
VERDICT Both newbie cooks and old hands in the kitchen will want a copy of this smartly written cookbook that delivers a year’s worth of delicious dishes and invaluable culinary insight.
