I used to own The New Best Recipe, but I got tired of it because the recipes seemed long-winded and overly complex, especially since so many simple techniques for cooking meats and vegetables were included. Despite that, quite a few of the recipes were divinely delicious, and I did miss the cookbook for that reason.
That's why I was so excited to discover this cookbook. It has many more recipes, including quite a few of my favorites from the magazine. But the recipes are more compact and only the most relevant details are included in the introduction, i.e., why does this recipe work. So I have regained many favorite recipes, discovered many more to try, and it's all contained in a handsome package with a gorgeous cover. This is definitely an improvement on The New Best Recipe, and probably the only Cook's Illustrated cookbook you need in your library.
