The Apple Lover's Cookbook celebrates the beauty of apples in all their delicious variety, taking you from the orchard to the kitchen with recipes both sweet (like Apple-Stuffed Biscuit Buns and Blue Ribbon Deep-Dish Apple Pie) and savory (like Cider-Brined Turkey and Apple Squash Gratin). It offers a full-color guide to fifty-nine apple varieties, with descriptions of their flavor, history, and, most important, how to use them in the kitchen. Amy Traverso also takes you around the country to meet farmers, cider makers, and apple enthusiasts.

The one hundred recipes run the spectrum from cozy crisps and cobblers to adventurous fare like Cider-Braised Brisket or Apple-Gingersnap Ice Cream. In addition, Amy organizes apple varieties into cooking categories so that it's easy to choose the right fruit for any recipe. You'll know to use tart Northern Spy in your pies and Fuji in delicate cakes. The Apple Lover's Cookbook is the ultimate apple companion.

Everything and more that you'd want to know about apples ! Very informative, easy to read with tempting down home recipes. Her descriptions & history of heirloom and rarely found apples is outstanding. A "must have" book for any apple lover or home cook.

This is a really good cookbook with lots of variety. I tried a few of the recipes and they were all good.

I am going to try every apple they mention at the front of the book, and you will want to, too! This book is very informative, concise and inspiring. I love how they set up the recipe, with a blurb about the recipe, followed by the tips, notes & equipment. I appreciate it when they tell me what I need before I become too attached to the recipe.

P.S. You should try the grilled cheese with apples ; ).
