    This is a wonderful cookbook to keep on hand! Everything shows recipes down to making everything from scratch to include broths, crusts the bread and the sauces! There isn't a lot of good "quick" recipes, but there is a ton of great recipes to go back to again and again to really personalize all levels of flavor! 5 Stars!

    I was not predisposed to like this cookbook. After all, what is Blue Apron but a pricy service for hipsters and over-taxed suburban moms? Just the stereotyped elite that Trump deplorables love to hate. But the Blue Apron crew won me over. If you’re a newbie in the kitchen — I’m talking about you college kids and divorced men, to quote the great Jonathan Coulter — this is a five-star read. There are explanations on how to do everything — right down to how to literally boil an egg! It’s the beginne I was not predisposed to like this cookbook.

But even if, like me, you’ve been cooking for decades, there’s plenty of great tips and wonderful recipes. Butterflied Chicken with Herb Vinaigrette (be sure to save that herb vinaigrette recipe to use — well, everywhere), Osso Bucco with Gremolata, Pan-Seared Pork Chops with Apple Cider Sauce, Sole Meunière, Vegetable Tempura, and so many lovely desserts! And Blue Apron’s recipe finally gave me the courage to try to roast a duck! This is the cookbook for everyone!

    Although I am a more advanced cook, I found this book to be really unique in its recipes and presentation. Photos are prevalent throughout the book to show cooks how the recipe should look at each stage of development. Have to say that my favorite part of the book was definitely in the selection. Unique recipes some with simple prep and some with more extravagant. Because the better chunk of recipes were heavy, this is not a book I will use regularly, but definitely for special occasions.

    I've seen so many commercials for Blue Apron and wanted to know more of their backgrounds and services they provide. The cookbook was filled with basic recipes and cooking tips featured on the cards they send you with the food in the package. I am all for cooking your own dinner but this cookbook like most was pretty basic and did not have many creative dishes featured. That is my only critique of this book.

    Good Cookbook, Unacceptable Index Blue Apron is a company that sends “meals in a box”: prepped ingredients and detailed instructions delivered weekly to your door, ready for you to finish on the stove or oven. I don’t subscribe to their service, but their menus looked intriguing enough that, when I saw they had a cookbook, I decided to give it a try.

I don’t subscribe to their service, but their menus looked intriguing enough that, when I saw they had a cookbook, I decided to give it a try. As a self-taught cook, I need a lot of hand-holding – step by step instructions, lots of pictures of what things should look like at each stage of the process, and clear notes about what kind of equipment is needed. The Blue Apron Cookbook does all that, and I happily recommend it, especially to beginner-level home chefs like me who want to make fancier looking (but still easy) meals. There’s the usual chapter on stocking your kitchen (equipment and staples), and thankfully it tells you something I wish more cookbooks did: define what a “medium” this or a “large” that really means. It’s annoying when a recipe says “use a medium pot” and you’re left wondering “okay, does your ‘medium” mean my ‘medium?’” So, points earned, here. Recipes are divided into chapters both by type of methods (e.g., braises and roasts) and by type of meal (sandwiches and risottos). Directions are step-by-step and have plenty of pictures, and always tell you up front what equipment you need. There are helpful tips and sidebars, such as how to clean leeks or capers, and suggested variations. None of the recipes are difficult, though I think sometimes some are aimed at higher than average budgets; how many of us have leftover roast lamb for sandwiches? Still, there aren’t any real budget-busters in here either, particularly if you ignore their constant admonitions to buy the “freshest, best ingredients.” Sometimes, the pack of Foster Farms breasts on-sale will have to do. I’ve only made a few of the recipes so far, but they were delicious: for instance the white risotto with parmigiano-reggiano and the crispy-seared chicken thighs with mushrooms. I’m looking forward to cooking my way through the whole book. I have two complaints about the book: one niggling and one serious. The minor criticism is their constant use of the word “flavorful.” Honestly guys, there are synonyms and you can look them up online. More seriously, this Kindle version commits the egregious sin of having a flat index – no tappable links. Page numbers in the index don’t match the page numbers in the e-book, so you have to search manually. That’s inexcusable for such a nice cookbook and this far into the age of e-books. So, one star deducted. That aside, I do like the Blue Apron Cookbook quite a bit and recommend it for people looking for impressive, tasty yet easy to make recipes in a book that has instructional value.

Some of the dishes require advanced cooking skills. I liked the meat recipes but not really the lasagna. I liked some of the simple and authentic recipes that seem great for dinner parties and holidays.

    I was hoping that this would feature some of the fun and unique recipes that Blue Apron sends to their customers, but this is actually a learn how to cook the basics type of cookbook. Not bad, but nothing that piqued my interest.

    Almost all the recipes in this book are non-vegetarian. Hardly anything is cooked without meat or eggs. And everything is pretty boring and flavorless.

    I rarely review cookbooks. After using Blue Apron a bit off and on for a while, I realized that what I mostly appreciated were the little recipe cards which included a full meal (main, two sides, etc.). I loved that concept. I keep a well-stocked kitchen and regularly go to the grocery store so I don't need individual ingredients sent to me. I know it's my fault for not taking a look inside before I ordered this, but their cookbook is not at all like their business model. It's just a regular coo I rarely review cookbooks.

    I very rarely find cookbooks that 1) have recipes that I can actually eat, but 2) take the time to teach me the meaning of braise and then give me multiple ingredients to then braise. And the book follows the same layout with braise, roast, poach, pan sear and on and on. This is my kind of cookbook as I am a moron in the kitchen and couldn't tell you what spice went with what, let alone how to cook something on the fly. Don't even ask me how to cobble something together and call it dinner.

    This book is an awesome resource!!! If you know how to cook but want some more basic technique skills this book is the awesomest of awesome. There are tons of pictures to show step by step, tons of explaining so that the person cooking can understand what they are doing. The recipes are perfect for those just trying things out. Perfect!!!

A great gift for people learning or re-learning how to cook. A very nice reference for cookbook collections in general.
