Saveur has always intimidated me. Mostly because it took me awhile to pronounce Saveur correctly. Also because their recipes looked so intense, and I don't consider myself that much of a foodie.

Well, I've learned how to pronounce Saveur, and yesterday I made a recipe with 21 ingredients - Vegetarian Lasagna! The number of ingredients was daunting, but the directions were clear and spot on. The lasagna came out of the oven looking just like the picture and - AND! - it was yummy! Definitely comfor

The stories, photography, recipes, culture are up to the expected Saveur standards of quality. The book is a journey to diverse cultures, recipes, images - beautiful. Recipes are very user-friendly.

just picked this up from the library today and made myself extremely hungry while lazing on the bed reading it in post-work, pre-dinner relaxation. it's incredibly readable-- with awesome brief write-ups lifted from their magazine about each dish or some sort of culture related to the featured dish. as always, excellent photos, and really do-able recipes-- which is a big thing for a cooking magazine/cookbook. yet, not dumbed down. love it. if i had infinite bookshelves and was never going to hav ...more
Beautifully photographed cookbook. Since it's comfort food around the world, there are fun photos of a variety of people and foods. There are also interesting sidebars with history and customs. There are also how-to tips, like how to pick an artichoke and what to do with it once you've got it (there are something like ten different kinds of artichokes. Who knew?). I've only made one recipe -- for huckleberry or blueberry crisp -- and it was wonderful, so plan to make more.

I wasn't familiar with
I've been on a cook book spree lately and while this one has a lot of variety and seems to have friendly enough recipes and instructions, it just didn't inspire me the way that others have. I flipped through most of the "food" without finding anything that I really wanted to make, but when I got to the desserts on the other hand, I wanted to make them all.

It's not a bad cookbook, it just didn't do it for me.
OMG, I want EVERYTHING. Not vegetarian, but everything looks SO's even going to get me eating poached eggs. YUM!

***I have to return this now, 12 weeks later. There are recipes I didn't try that I'd like to (poached eggs in spicy tomato sauce!), but the two big takeaways are tikka masala (I sub tofu and vegetables for chicken) and potatoes gratin (the garlic was a revelation). Pretty yum.

You can't go wrong with Comfort Food.....there are some really great recipes in this...have already tried the French Onion Soup and it was fabulous and I have about 40 of the recipes in this book marked to try.... and you can 't beat the price for the Kindle version.
Definitely has a couple of yummy recipes, but not amazing. Most of the recipes are a little out of my range. In real life, when am I ever going to fry chicken? Super excited about some of the drinks though, and I really want to try the snickerdoodles.
Made 3 recipes, and they turned out great. I would come very close to buying this book.
Beautiful food porn photos too. Would make a great coffee table book. You guessed it - a Top cookbooks of 2011 list member..

The pictures in this book are awesome. I have saved 6 recipes to try, but they are as of now yet untried. There are lots of fancy ingredients, so it's definitely special occasion comfort food.

I was expecting American comfort foods and got, instead, sort of a global comfort food approach. It's fine though...full of great stuff, classic Saveur. And in my book, Saveur can do no wrong!
The photography is amazing! I made lemony roasted chicken and fennel baked in cream for dinner and ate like a neanderthal. There are some wonderful regional takes on traditional comfort foods here.
Beautiful photos of the various comfort foods with interesting stories about the countries and people who live there
Fun to read & look through but not a realistic source of recipes for me.

This book is so beautiful, I can't even judge it properly.
