I just got my copy from Amazon last week and so far everything I cooked from it turned out great.
Amanda Hesser did a great job compiling the best recipes published in the NYT since the 1850's and the historical background and witty prose makes this book a pleasure to read and to cook from.
The moussaka was a favorite with my family. p.518
The chocolate Dump-it-cake is easy to make and delicious. p.781
The Roasted Feta with Thyme Honey simple and very tasty. p.92
The Roast Lemon Chicken was excellent hot and the next day for sandwiches. p.478
