While I have been a reader of their cookbooks in electronic forms (see my links to them), this was the first time I have had an encounter with a printed and bound paper book.
I have to say I am impressed, especially for a freebie. Sure, lots of stores have recipe cards and certainly a lot of food manufacturers do websites and cookbooks. But this is the first cookbook I have seen from a food retailer.
It is primarily organized by course, with a special section devoted to famous chefs such as Mario Batali, Steven Raichlen, Bruce Aidells and other.
At 236 pages long, there is a wide variety of recipes. Along with a typical index, there is also a index by manufacturer, which makes sense since they reference so many products by name.
There definitely are some recipes in here we are interested in trying or using as a basis for our own recipe. I haven't seen this cookbook at Costco since the weekend after Thanksgiving, but if they hand them out again, I recommend getting one. It has a lot of appealing and practical recipes in it and I am sure most of the readers of this blog would find something useful in it.
