Overview

Here's the ultimate of ultimates: nine hundred new recipes from Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough, the authors of the Ultimate cookbook series. With a quarter million books already in print, their series has followed a simple recipe to success: Give cooks hundreds of solid, basic recipes with thousands of ways to vary them, shake them up, and personalize them so that everyone can be an ultimate cook!

With The Ultimate Cook Book, Weinstein and Scarbrough tackle everything from breakfast to barbecue, stir-fries to steaks, chilis to curries, and paellas to puddings. Pick your favorite, cook it as a solid basic, or vary it in hundreds of ways to make the dish your own. You've got years' worth of dishes and a world of cooking experiences ahead of you. What could be more fun?

Take chicken, that ubiquitous blank canvas. Roast a whole bird to perfection. Bake it under a salt crust for a dramatic presentation. Roast chicken halves atop winter squash. Prepare a Greek-style casserole with leeks, pine nuts, and raisins. Stuff chicken breasts with a Moroccan-inspired mixture of couscous and spices. There are more than thirty ideas for preparing boneless, skinless chicken breasts. And ten things to do with a leftover roast chicken or that rotisserie bird purchased on the way home. Get the idea?

This comprehensive, easy-to-use compendium is the ultimate in inspiration, the ultimate in possibilities. Start your Ultimate cookbook collection today—or round it out with The Ultimate Cook Book.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
It seems logical that the wizards behind The Ultimate Cookie Book, The Ultimate Ice Cream Book, The Ultimate Muffin Book, and The Ultimate Candy Book would unleash their superlative skills on cooking in general. Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough's The Ultimate Cook Book delivers more than 900 new recipes; that's more than three years of meals! In addition to all the recipes, this 500-plus-page giant compendium contains numerous tips and thousands of variations on everything from appetizers to desserts, breakfast to a late-night treat.
Library Journal
The ten earlier cookbooks in this popular series all focused on a single topic, from shrimp to ice cream to peanut butter. Now the authors present recipes for all courses of a meal, with dozens of variations and suggestions for many more (e.g., "Ten Things To Do with Gravlax"). The recipes are simple and mostly quick, and they are inspired by a wide variety of cuisines; although many are classics or familiar old favorites, there are imaginative twists as well. Boxes on ingredients, techniques, culinary lore, and helpful tips are scattered throughout. Other big books, such as The Gourmet Cookbook, offer more sophisticated recipes, but Weinstein and Scarbrough's collection will be accessible even to the novice. Busy cooks looking for ideas for a quick meal or for a company dinner will find dozens of possibilities here. Recommended for most collections.
