After trying the Fried Eggs With White Vinegar, Food52 Genius Recipes is, well... genius. The idea for these recipes come from the Genius Recipes column of the Food52 website. Genius recipes are those which rethink cooking techniques, solve problems, and I believe make even simple food outstanding. Even the most experienced cook will find all kinds of new ideas. At the same time, many of the recipes given are simple enough to make quickly for a weeknight meal. There is a good balance of simple and complex in the variety of recipes given. At 100 recipes and almost all with a short history and instructions contained on a single page or less, this is an entirely do-able cookbook. With a unique twist on a technique or ingredient, each of the recipes was a little cooking or baking adventure with a delicious reward at the end. I might not always prepare food with a genius recipe from now own, but the book has added significantly to my culinary toolbox of ingredient ideas and cooking and baking method. This book is worth taking a look at! Speaking of rethinking how you cook… Do you know the difference between baking soda and baking powder? Or how long raw eggs will last in your refrigerator? What is “resting time?” What is the proper temperature to even cook chicken? If you don’t know the answer to even one of these questions, then buy yourself a copy of “Conquer Your Kitchen” from Chef Jai Scovers right now. In “Conquer Your Kitchen,” you’ll discover over 100 kitchen secrets guaranteed to save you time and money, including, for the first time ever and only in “Conquer Your Kitchen,” the most important thing to have in your home when it comes to you and your family’s good health. This one simple “trick” is guaranteed to change your life and how you will eat forever. It is a must have for any kitchen and anyone who loves to cook!

When it is lunch time and I am faced with another wonderful grilled cheese from the lunchroom (they are truly good) I take my compostable lunch tray and retreat to my desk for 20 minutes of Food52. And when I heard that I could find so much of Food52 in an actual book, which I always prefer, I was giddy. Genius Recipes appeared early in the summer, a perfect slow morning read, a cup of tea and and the start of a lovely summer day. We got along immediately. Genius is a big word, not to be tossed around and used lightly. And this one, not only genius but subtitled, 100 Recipes That Will Change the Way You Cook, oh my, such lofty aspirations. Not just the smartest child in the class but the most outgoing and well behaved also, you don't say? One cup of tea turned into two. Ideas for summer tomatoes and holiday parties, notes scratched in my food journal, beautiful pictures and well thought out recipes, all the ingredients for a perfectly lovely summer morning. And later that day, Marcella Hazan's buttery rich tomato sauce, simmering on the stove; from start to finish a culinarily perfect day. Genius? Perhaps, but most certainly at the top of the class. Through Blogging for Books, I received a copy of this book for review purposes. Delicious.

Let me start by saying that this is an absolutely beautiful book! It has a hardbound embossed cover, thick high-quality pages, and beautiful pictures. It feels expensive, and something about it reminds me of the cookbooks of yesteryear, but it is modern and updated. There is a clear index, organized by Breakfast, Snacks & Drinks, Soups & Salads, Meaty Mains, Meatless Mains, Vegetables, and Desserts. The book offers up recipes that include "genius" techniques and twists you may not have thought of. For example, mashing up onions and cilantro into a paste, and folding that into mashed avocado for a smooth guacamole. Or cooking a whole chicken at super high heat with no basting to create a really juicy and delectable meal. Some things may seem contrary to what you would expect, but the results speak for themselves. I can't wait to work my way through this book and make other delicious recipes like Marcella Hazan's Tomato Sauce with Onion and Butter. This book will hold a respected position on my cookbook shelf. Food52 knows how to do cookbooks right!

I originally borrowed this book from our library, and loved it and knew I wanted to add it to my own collection. It also opened me up to the Food52 community which I have thoroughly been enjoying. I plan on giving this book to my foodie friends and family as gifts. I believe there are two more books from Food52 which I will also be purchasing. Do I recommend it -- Absolutely!
