Last night I was thrilled to attend the launch party for Food Network Magazine’s New Cookbook. The event took place in the Food Network test kitchens at Chelsea Market in NYC. So I was at my dream party: a party that’s in the kitchen! Check out my photos from the event and what to expect from this photo-packed cookbook!..
The Launch Party. First off, the fun stuff. Check out this party! I have always wanted to get a first hand look inside Food Network’s famed test kitchens. So when I entered the party I was a bit star struck, er kitchen struck. I wanted to hop over to the ‘prep side’ of the counter – with the FN party chefs and start whipping up some recipes. But I restrained myself, grabbed a glass of bubbly and perused the party…
And there was reason to party – this cookbook is fabulous! The first thing I do when reviewing a cookbook is flip through the pages and check out the food photography and the number of photos in the book. Well this book delivers. Every single recipe has its own full page photo. How great is that? That’s probably one of the biggest downfalls of vintage cookbooks (you know the ones your mom used) – they just didn’t have enough photos. But Food Network clearly knows that we eat with our eyes – and seeing a photo of the finished dish will get us inspired to start cooking!

And since I personally had to check out the vegetarian options for the book – yes! there are great veg options including salads, pasta, sandwiches, dessert and more. And I know I could make a few simple substitutions in the non-veg dishes. I spotted a recipe for Cold Curry Peanut Noodles that I am dying to try.
