The Cook's Magazine Cookbook

Michael Hill, Other Simon & Schuster $18.45 (288p) ISBN 978-0-671-55481-1
In its relatively short existence (five years), Cook's magazine has built up a sizable readership of serious cooks who are eager to try the newest in culinary fashions while retaining older, proven techniques. In their first collection of recipes from the magazine, the authors (Judith Hill is editor-in-chief of Cook's) present an all-American cookbook: Southern gumbos and jambalayas and Southwestern chilis appear in the soup chapter along with New England clam chowder and split pea soup. The first recipe sets the mood for favorites with modern fillips: potato chips made of pumpkin or sweet potato. Other tasty recipes are beef brisket flavored with fresh herbs, shallots, white wine and heavy cream; roast goose stuffed with wild rice and cranberries; and, for the outdoor grill enthusiast, a ""piquant prodigal lamb'' served with cold cucumber sauce and spicy mint sauce.
