Food52 Genius Recipes
100 Recipes That Will Change the Way You Cook
The creators of a famous food blog have taken their favorite recipes, the ones that changed everything for them and compiled them in this book. These are the recipes that have made it onto the shortlist for one reason or another. These are the recipes that to them are "pure genius". Color photographs fill the book and give the reader/cook an idea of the what the finished product should look like. There are also some pictures that show the steps for some of the recipes.
I read through the entire book and tried several of the recipes. None of the recipes grabbed me and begged me to make them. But I tried several so that I could rate the book. They turned out okay. They were good, but not great. They certainly aren't genius. Several of the recipes used ingredients that aren't easy to find or available in my area, so that also made it difficult. Overall, it was a neat book to look through, but not one that I'll be hanging on to.
I received this book free of charge from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
