A New York Times bestseller and Winner of the James Beard Award


All the best recipes from 150 years of distinguished food journalism—a volume to take its place in America's kitchens alongside Mastering the Art of French Cooking and How to Cook Everything.


Amanda Hesser, co-founder and CEO of Food52 and former New York Times food columnist, brings her signature voice and expertise to this compendium of influential and delicious recipes from chefs, home cooks, and food writers. Devoted Times subscribers will find the many treasured recipes they have cooked for years—Plum Torte, David Eyre's Pancake, Pamela Sherrid's Summer Pasta—as well as favorites from the early Craig Claiborne New York Times Cookbook and a host of other classics—from 1940s Caesar salad and 1960s flourless chocolate cake to today's fava bean salad and no-knead bread.

Hesser has cooked and updated every one of the 1,000-plus recipes here. Her chapter introductions showcase the history of American cooking, and her witty and fascinating headnotes share what makes each recipe special. The Essential New York Times Cookbook is for people who grew up in the kitchen with Claiborne, for curious cooks who want to serve a nineteenth-century raspberry granita to their friends, and for the new cook who needs a book that explains everything from how to roll out dough to how to slow-roast fish—a volume that will serve as a lifelong companion.

I'm sure there are some gems in there, but from the sample it appears to be severely lacking in photos, and includes quite a number recipes that could hardly even be called recipes (e.g. caramelized bacon: put brown sugar on the bacon and then bake it, whodathunk?)

If you're going to go to all the trouble of making and "updating" all the recipes, you could at least photograph most of the interesting ones.
Never in a million years would I pay the "print list price" of $40 unless it were fully loaded with great photos, but for this $2.99 price? Maybe.

I'd be interested in what the differences are. Mostly different commentary and some revisions to recipes, etc?
Edit: Oh, I see, this is actually a totally different book, not an attempt to update the original, though there are a few overlapping recipes.

Yeah, it's much more fun when you have to guess the amount of an ingredient to use because prior food stains have made it impossible to read. It's like a whole new recipe!

Exactly plus the weight aspect of carrying those books especially if you have to travel like me.

You know what's more fun than that? Getting burns on your ass from dropping the phone or iPad in the toilet while researching duck l'orange recipes for dinner.

Ask me how I know... Dalek

Is this different that the book linked in OP? I could not find a "Craig Claiborne" edition.
