The James Beard Award–winning and New York Times best-selling compendium of the paper’s best recipes, revised and updated.
Ten years after the phenomenal success of her once-in-a-generation cookbook, former New York Times food editor Amanda Hesser returns with an updated edition for a new wave of home cooks. She has added 120 new but instantly iconic dishes to her mother lode of more than a thousand recipes, including Samin Nosrat’s Sabzi Polo (Herbed Rice with Tahdig), Todd Richards’s Fried Catfish with Hot Sauce, and J. Kenji López-Alt’s Cheesy Hasselback Potato Gratin. Devoted Times subscribers as well as newcomers to the paper’s culinary trove will also find scores of timeless gems such as Purple Plum Torte, David Eyre’s Pancake, Pamela Sherrid’s Summer Pasta, and classics ranging from 1940s Caesar Salad to modern No-Knead Bread. Hesser has tested and adapted each of the recipes, and she highlights her go-to favorites with wit and warmth. As Saveur declared, this is a “tremendously appealing collection of recipes that tells the story of American cooking.”
Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, founders of the online kitchen and home destination Food52, pull off home-cooked dinners with their families with stunning regularity. But they don't cook every night.
Starting with flexible base dishes made on the weekend, Amanda and Merrill mix, match, and riff to create new dinners, lunches, and even desserts throughout the week. Blistered tomatoes are first served as a side, then become sauce for spaghetti with corn. Tuna, poached in olive oil on a Sunday, gets paired with braised peppers and romesco for a fiery dinner, with spicy mayo for a hearty sandwich, and with zucchini and couscous for a pack-and-go salad.
Amanda and Merrill’s seasonal plans give you everything you need to set yourself up well for the week, with grocery lists and cooking timelines. They also share clever tips and tricks for more confident cooking, showing how elements can work across menus and seasons to fit your mood or market, and how to be scrappy with whatever’s left in the fridge. These building blocks form A New Way to Dinner, the key to smarter, happier cooking that leaves you with endless possibilities for the week ahead.
The Best Cooks Are Home Cooks
Accomplished food writers and editors Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs had a mission: to discover and celebrate the best home cooks in the country. Each week for fifty-two weeks, they ran recipe contests on their website, Food52.com, and the 140 winning recipes make up this book. They include:
- Double Chocolate Espresso Cookies
- Secret Ingredient Beef Stew
- Simple Summer Peach Cake
- Wishbone Roast Chicken with Herb Butter
These recipes prove the truth that great home cooking doesn’t have to be complicated or precious to be memorable. This book captures the community spirit that has made Food52 a success. It features Amanda’s and Merrill’s thoughts and tips on every recipe, plus behind-the-scenes photos, reader comments, and portraits of the contributors—putting you right in the kitchen with America’s most talented cooks.

Aus Salaten lässt sich so viel mehr machen als die immer gleiche Beilage. Gemüse, Fleisch, Bohnen, Fisch, Nudeln und Brot werden jetzt geschmort, geröstet oder mariniert, sodass immer neue Geschmackskombinationen entstehen - ob deftig oder fruchtig, knusprig oder cremig, warm oder kalt. Wie wären zum Beispiel Shrimps und Radicchio in einer Bacon-Vinaigrette, weiße Bohnen mit geschmortem Zitronenfenchel oder Mizuna-Salat mit gebratener Ente und Äpfeln? Mit den 60 Rezepten in diesem Buch wird aus der Beilage schnell und einfach ein Hauptgericht, das satt macht und dank gesunder, frischer Zutaten voller Nährstoffe ist. Zum Mitnehmen werden die Salate als Mittagessen im Job eine köstliche Abwechslung zur Kantine oder zum Pausenbrot. Und wer selbst kreativ werden will, dem wird ein Baukasten für eigene Salatideen an die Hand gegeben.
