    Unlike a slew of cookbooks out there that are more than half filler trying to convince you they hold all the keys to perfect health and flavor, Milk Street Tuesday Nights gets to it quick after a one page intro. Organized by a combination of prep times (Fast, Faster, Fastest) and themes (Pizza Night), this is a practical cookbook with ingredients that you can find in most grocery stores that don't call for fancy gadgets, beyond a food processor. The tips are brief ("don't skip the lime wedges") Unlike a slew of cookbooks out there that are more than half filler trying to convince you they hold all the keys to perfect health and flavor, Milk Street Tuesday Nights gets to it quick after a one page intro. Organized by a combination of prep times (Fast, Faster, Fastest) and themes (Pizza Night), this is a practical cookbook with ingredients that you can find in most grocery stores that don't call for fancy gadgets, beyond a food processor. The tips are brief ("don't skip the lime wedges") with the logic outlined ("they provide a much needed hit of acidity and freshness.") Dishes come from a wide range of cuisines around the globe. This book totally restored my faith in cookbooks and is my new favorite by a wide margin. It might not have the cachet of a celebrity chef's art book masquerading as a cookbook but if you want something for the kitchen rather than the coffee table, look no further.

    Nice one page directions with beautiful photos to match from the America's Test Kitchen guy. As with all cook books, everything takes longer than the time indicated. All of the recipes I tried came out really well, in particularly a steamed white fish that reminded me a lot of Vietnamese claypot fish.

    Once again Chris Kimball and his cohort of recipe development chefs have put together a great cookbook. I've already cooked a few recipes from this book and they've been huge hits with the wife and our extended families. (Slightly less so with the kids, but the Milk Street philosophy is about bold flavors and the kids aren't quite ready for that yet in most foods) This book is similar in its raison d'etre as Dinner Illustrated (book insertion link not working for me as I write this) put out by Once again Chris Kimball and his cohort of recipe development chefs have put together a great cookbook. I've already cooked a few recipes from this book and they've been huge hits with the wife and our extended families. (Slightly less so with the kids, but the Milk Street philosophy is about bold flavors and the kids aren't quite ready for that yet in most foods) This book is similar in its raison d'etre as Dinner Illustrated (book insertion link not working for me as I write this) put out by his previous employer, America's Test Kitchen. This book has a lot more recipes that are faster - in fact Tuesday Night's chapters are Fast, Faster, and Fastest. Also, in keeping with the Milk Street ethos, the recipes are more from around the world and with boldly spiced flavors. Not necessarily spicy, just lots of spices - like Za'atar, sumac, or harissa. I can't help but compare the two as they both came out at the same time and Kimball used to work at ATK. I like the way Dinner Illustrated is organized better - by the protein in the dish. I also really like the style of their "Illustrated" line of cookbooks that takes a lot of guesswork out of how things are supposed to look as they're going along. I also think that there are a chunk of recipes in Tuesday Nights (not too many) that are "cheating" in that they are done in less than an hour, but they require something to go along with them to be a complete meal like rice or potatoes or bread. In the case of rice or bread it's not a big deal because bread you just buy and rice (at least the way I make it) is fire and forget in the rice cooker. That said, I have really enjoyed the recipes I've made from this book. And some of them have inspired my wife who is much more of the off the script type of chef to come up with some great ideas, too. If you want to explore some food from around the world that tastes great and doesn't take too long to cook, this is a great buy.

    The foreword indicates that this uses ingredients in your cupboard and changes up your routine to bring worldly flavors to your kitchen. I would classify this for more of an experienced or "gourmet" chef. I would not recommend this for novice cooks unless they have all night to make dinner and can plan accordingly. Also you have to want to experiment with cuisine from around the world.

    I have previously talked a lot of shit about Christopher Kimball as a food personality and presumed that the stodginess of ATK was mostly his doing. But by god the man did some traveling and with the help of his hardworking and too-subtly billed team has published a cookbook full of mildly international dishes with a fuck ton of anchovies, fish sauce, and other umami bombs.

    I wasn't familiar with Milk Street, but apparently it's a cooking school, TV show, radio show, and magazine! In this cookbook Kimball focuses on quick, weeknight meal ideas. I like that the cookbook is divided by how you cook, not by meal. So there are chapters on Fast, Faster, Fastest (how quickly the meal is ready), sides, salads, pizza night, etc. The recipes are globally inspired, so there is a lot of variety of dishes.

I found a few things I'd like to try, but there were a lot of seafood dishes which I can't eat and I'm not a super adventurous/global eater, so this wasn't the best cookbook for me. But, if you are looking for more quick and easy meals there are a LOT of recipes in this book.

    I give this cookbook 4 stars for the interesting dishes and the fact that the recipes were accompanied by photographs which is a big plus for me. Most of these dishes are global recipes with an emphasis on Asian cuisine. I would have been disappointed if I were a mom looking to find quick meals for my kids on a busy weeknight. I’m guessing that many kids aren’t going to be adventurous enough to try a lot of the dishes offered.

It’s a great cookbook if you love global recipes and want to break out of the rut of spaghetti, mac-n-cheese and chicken fingers.

    Kimball, the long time face of Cooks Illustrated, started Milk Street in 2017, a kind of 21st century approach to cooking that combines all the ethnic food trends in America with an emphasis on flavor. And, in this book, it’s both flavor and simplicity so that you can get a meal on the table quickly on a weeknight. Chapters are organized around speed (fast, faster and fastest) and types of foods like easy additions, pizza night, roast and simmer. The fast, faster and fastest designations seem Kimball, the long time face of Cooks Illustrated, started Milk Street in 2017, a kind of 21st century approach to cooking that combines all the ethnic food trends in America with an emphasis on flavor. And, in this book, it’s both flavor and simplicity so that you can get a meal on the table quickly on a weeknight. Chapters are organized around speed (fast, faster and fastest) and types of foods like easy additions, pizza night, roast and simmer. The fast, faster and fastest designations seem mostly accurate for a relatively experienced cook who has already gotten all their groceries. However, these recipes all required hands-on for most of the recipe. There is a section for long cooking/hands-off but it is very brief. Every recipe has a full page picture, includes how long the recipe will take and how many it will serve. Ingredients tend to be easily accessible. These are easy to make recipes with lots of flavor that reflect diverse ethnic cuisines like pork chops with guajillo chile and ginger scallion steamed fish. Asian flavors predominate. Unfortunately, almost all of the fastest recipes are either eggs or pasta. It would have been great to see some other types of fastest dishes. While many recipes build on goods from the pantry like beans or pasta, almost all will require fresh produce like green onions, cilantro, fennel, so the recipes will require some planning ahead. A pantry and fridge introduction to the recipes might have been useful for cooks.

    I received an advanced reader copy, in which the photos are in black & white, and the index is missing, which makes the cookbook less appealing and more difficult to use. The 2-page spread layout with a photography for every recipe makes it easy to browse through a select a recipe. The instructions are precise and easy to read, and sufficient white space is left on the page for cook's notes.

A good variety of recipes is offered, requiring varying preparation times; however the sheer number of ingredients and multiple steps required will eliminate quite a few of the recipes from the week night rotation of a busy family. In addition, many recipes seem to feature an unusual ingredient that I don't keep on hand and that isn't available at my nearby market. We live in a densely populated, multi-ethnic suburban area, so our grocery stores tend to be well stocked with many ethnic foods. I don't like to purchase pantry items that I may never use again, or will use infrequently, so that seems to rule out quite a few of the recipes. It would be nice if the authors indicated a suitable alternate to those types of ingredients.

    There's a lot of good stuff in here, and definitely some things I'd be interested in trying, but...okay, so I subscribe to the Milk Street magazine and there are always so many vegetarian recipes in it, enough to make it worth ignoring all the meat ones. But that was a lot harder to do in this book. The recipes are only divided up by the amount of time it takes to make them, so the vegetarian recipes are really difficult to find, and the ratio leans heavily in favor of non-vegetarian meals.

    I turned to the Milk Street publications because like Chris Kimble, I wanted to expand my cooking rotation with flavor profiles other than European North American. Some recipes I plan on preparing include: Glazed Salmon with Chili-Basil Sauce; Kimchi and Bacon[and I plan on substituting Spam] Fried Rice; Spicy Sichuan Tofu and Pork or Mapo Dofu; Coconut-Lemon Grass Shrimp; Chicken Teriyaki Donburi; Miso-Marinated Skirt Steak; Lemon Grass-Coconut Tofu

    I judge general-interest cookbooks by two criteria: How many vegetarian, or easily-converted-to-vegetarian, recipes are there and how extensive is the baking/desserts section? This cookbook did not score well on the first criterion and fared little better on the second. For cooks who include meat in their diets, this will be an excellent addition to their cookbook shelves. It's usefulness and appeal to me are, however, very limited.

    GREAT cookbook for the hobbyist chef or those expanding their flavor territory. Recipes are simple, straightforward, creative. Instructions are clear. Photos beautiful. You'll need know-how of some basic techniques for these to be "easy weeknight bites." Still a wonderful resource to learn from if you aren't quite there.

    There were some good looking recipes in here. I'm glad he wrote this book in a fast, faster, fastest manner. When I used to get his magazine the recipes were ridiculous with 20-30 steps. There were enough recipes in here that I'll add the actual book to my bday list. I got this book from the library.

    I’ve only cooked from this book for the last 2 weeks. Everything I’ve cooked has been good. This is a solid cookbook. I love that every recipe comes with a picture. The recipes are easy and seem well tested. I would definitely recommend this book. I checked it out from my local library, but will be adding this to my wishlist to own.

    Absolutely gorgeous photography and yummy sounding recipes. Unfortunately, I didn't find any recipes to use, in part because nearly every recipe requires some ingredient that would be hard or expensive for me to source. (I know they've tried to simplify things from the authentic recipes, but it's still a bit much for me.) I do love all the technique though.

    This is probably a nice cookbook but it's almost entirely meat-based meals, and the vegetarian options are mostly pasta without protein (my family does eat meat but very little, for budget reasons). "Pasta is the only vegetarian option" is so '90s.

    Kimball writes a poetic recipe. His words are thoughtful, explain the tastes and smells you're in for and then matches it with beautiful pictures. Time will tell if the recipes are as delicious as they look.

    What makes this cookbook special is the international influences carried out with minimal, easy to find ingredients that only add to the brightness of each dish. Well organized recipes, nothing to frustrate anyone new to cooking. Doable, efficient and delicious. Outstanding cookbook.
