Details: Product Description The ultimate Martha Stewart recipe collection. All the recipes from Martha's original books--more than 1,400 in all--have been gathered into one convenient reference book for everyday use in the kitchen. From Amazon With more than 1,600 recipes, there's something for every palate in this handsomely-designed and sturdy cookbook by the author of 11 best-selling books on cooking, entertaining, gardening and home improvement. From Publishers Weekly Stewart assembles her previous nine collections in one volume. New material is included in sidebars ("I have been making pastry crusts since I was a little girl") and some recipe headings ("Guests cannot believe that someone has actually stuffed a snow pea!"). Abundant among the more than 1600 recipes is the sort of labor-intensive company fare that Stewart is known for, like the nine recipes (plus more suggested variations) in "Hors d'Oeuvres" for seeded and filled cherry tomatoes, or Pumpkin Pot Pies, in which the meat from herb-roasted Cornish hens is combined with vegetables and a Cognac sauce and cooked inside hollowed-out, three-pound pumpkins that are capped with puff pastry crusts. There are, however, simple dishes such as grilled Chicken Paillard and Pencil Asparagus with Lemon; others draw on ethnic and regional cuisines, such as Saffron Couscous and Soba Noodles with Cucumbers. Line drawings illustrate some difficult techniques; "Entertaining a Crowd" offers recipes for pasta parties, tempura fetes and clambakes. Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal In case you haven't been counting, Stewart's nine previous cookbooks (Entertaining, Weddings, Quick Cook, etc.) contain more than 1400 recipes-and here they all are, with new, step-by-step illustrations, tip boxes, and menu suggestions. Recipes are organized by course or food group, with a separate (and surprisingly short) chapter on Entertaining a Crowd. Part of the huge appeal Stewart's books have always had comes from the beautiful photographs of beautiful food; without color shots of her unique presentations for inspiration, this falls into a rather different category. But fans will welcome the compendium as a resource and a reference; most collections will want multiple copies. Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Booklist Never mind that Stewart has written nine cookbooks, that this latest one is simply a conglomeration of 1,400 recipes from previous ones, or that she borrows ideas and dishes from the best chefs. Her name will guarantee steady requests. Recipes are traditional ethnic foods, comfort foods, and newfangled "fused" meals. Barbara Jacobs
