The book covers appetizers to desserts with main dishes, side dishes, regional favorites, and more. The book is well designed, easy to use, and full of so many great recipes I can’t wait to try. My only complaint is the lack of photos, but in a book that already weighs over 4 pounds and is over 4” thick, I guess that’s to be expected. There are 400 full-color photos included and they’re spectacular and represent the recipes well.

This would be my go-to book for a wedding shower gift – it’s a hardback, it’s substantial and the color photos that are included are fabulous. But this one is staying with me – I can’t wait to take it for a spin in my kitchen.
