-- cookbook ratings and reviews served up fresh! --

Ever have a brain freeze while trying to choose a cookbook for yourself or your favorite cook? Of course you have! Cookbooks are hard to choose: you can't pre-test them, they all look great, and there are a *million* of them.

You need expert help. You need someone who tests cookbooks 24/7, sees through hype like it's Pyrex, and knows the difference between a bad cook and a bad recipe. You need T. Susan Chang, the regular cookbook reviewer for the Boston Globe and NPR!

Here on Cookbook Finder, you'll find her ratings and reviews for the best and the newest cookbooks (which aren't always the same). You can hunt down cookbooks by skill level and giftworthiness. And you'll be warned if there are impossible-to-find ingredients, eye-straining page designs, or recipes that require 4 days and a vacuum sealer.

All for less than the price of the venti latte you're sipping now - and a fraction of the $35 you spend every time you buy a cookbook blind.
