Any busy cook appreciates dishes that can be prepared in advance, and the latest title from the Cook's Illustratedkitchen offers more than 300 make-ahead recipes. The editors chose both obvious candidates, dishes that "are made ahead by design," like dips and appetizer spreads, and recipes that required some tweaking or experimentation to be successfully prepared in advance, such as Cocktail Crab Cakes. Most of the recipes include variations, and there are also ratings of ingredients and equipment, numerous charts, color photographs, and step-by-step illustrations. For most collections.
