    I love apples. Eating them, drinking them, smelling them. It doesn't matter. Fall is my favorite holiday, and apples and autumn go perfectly hand in hand. I was really excited to get this cookbook, because what could be better than a whole cookbook dedicated to one of my favorite ingredients? Overall, I thought this was a decent collection of recipes. The book is divided by course for easy navigation. The chapters include an introduction, Breakfasts & Breads, Drinks & Snacks, Salads & I love apples. Eating them, drinking them, smelling them.

I was really excited to get this cookbook, because what could be better than a whole cookbook dedicated to one of my favorite ingredients? Overall, I thought this was a decent collection of recipes. The book is divided by course for easy navigation. The chapters include an introduction, Breakfasts & Breads, Drinks & Snacks, Salads & Sides, Apples Make the Meal, Desserts, Preserving, and the different varieties of apples. The first and last sections give really good information about apples, including advice on how to store, cook, and prepare them as well as what apples are best used for what type of cooking process or dish. It was mostly things that I already knew, but it was a handy guide to have all the same. A lot of these recipes were fairly standard and basic, things like granola and yogurt, crepes, and smoothies. While there are more complicated dishes in this book too, I was surprised how many of these recipes were things that I can already make, and don't necessarily need a cookbook in order to make them. The instructions are very short, sweet, and to the point, in a numbered step format. I thought they were a bit too short and not very descriptive, and could have been written better. Most of the recipes are either vegetarian friendly or very easily adapted to not include meat (minus the chapter on meat dishes). I'm not vegetarian, but it was something that I noticed. There's a lot of very pretty pictures of different kinds of apples and shots from orchards and things like that. However, there weren't very many photographs of the actual dishes that were being described. I would have liked more of them- a lot more of them. I will say though, that the food pictures that were included were great looking. Some of the dishes I'd most like to try include Apple Doughnuts, Apple Eggnog, Sea Scallops with Coriander and Cider Sauce, and Apple Cranberry Meringue Pie. All in all, this isn't a book that I suggest you run out and buy right away. However, it's worth having on hand, especially if you enjoy cooking with apples as much as I do. I think it's a book that is best used by cooks on the beginners' end of the spectrum. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. This review can also be found on my blog, Bitches n Prose.

    This is a great little book (under 200 pp) filled with a variety of apple recipes - from apple pie to apple cake to apple fritters to apple chutney - that are mostly easy to make. It has found its own place on my cookbook shelves, and I look forward to trying more of the recipes. In addition to the recipes, it's also a little primer on apple varieties - for each variety, it gives a little history and then ends with a chart that shows the best uses for each variety.

    Man, I love apples. This cookbook shows a number of ways to prepare apples for all meals and occasions. Some recipes are easy enough for a kid to do them, and some involve complex techniques. All give inspiration - and make me want to take another trip down to the orchard. The book is short and well-edited, friendly and open, and teaches a lot about the fruit as well.

    Exceptional book Everything you'd like to know about apples you will find in this book. Thorough research about the fruit, history, varieties, differences. The book offers multiple recipes for every aspect how apple can be cooked- deserts and savory dishes; how can be stored - preserved, dehydrated...exceptional work of love for the fruit.

    Lots to ponder over. I'm a little out of my comfort zone with this being an American book (I'm not American) but when I'm ready to venture into the recipes, I'm sure there will be much to like. It's stirred my curiosity into finding out about British varieties.

    I would like to thank Storey Publishing for allowing me to read an ARC of this book via Netgalley.

Let’s see… I loved the history of apples and how they are still changing through hybridisation to this day. It was also good for me to see the different varieties of apples they have in America compared to here in Australia. The lists at the back of the book that describe each apple variety used, as well as a list of what they’re best for is great. I must admit I’ve never seen apples beyond a breakfast, snack or dessert item and so this book really helped me discover the apples full potential. Recipe layout clean, easy to read and simple to follow. The way a good cook book should be. Good serving sizes – I have a family of five and so many modern cook books seem to make servings for only 4. Big positive. :-) Something I really liked was the fact this book wasn’t coming across as ‘let’s shove apples in any old recipe just so we can get it in this book’. No, they chose recipes that, when you read them you wonder why on earth you’ve not put apple in them before. I mean, there are your common things like crumbles, strudels, fritters and so on… but apple scramble or even turkey scaloppini with apple cider and mushrooms – wow! Those sorts of recipes really jumped off the page at me. Being really taken by some of the recipes meant I would love to just jump in now and give them a go. Add to that what I saw as a bonus at the end of the book where they go through different ways to preserve apples to ensure you get your best out of them all year round – well done. Exactly the sort of thing I like to see as I would much rather eat local and what’s in season. This book supports such principles so gets a big thumb’s up. If you’re after a good, all round, cook book to help you and your family enjoy the bounty of apples, I highly recommend the Apple cook book. Yes the desserts and sweets look amazing, but this book has so many more recipes to offer for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And, yes, it does have a Waldorf salad in it… I was asked if there was one by a friend when they heard I was reading a book of apple recipes. Apparently you can’t have a decent cook book (in their opinion) without a Waldorf salad. The only reason I didn’t give 5 out of 5 stars is simply because it is suited for the American readers and apples. Not a flaw or a fault, but I just couldn’t bring myself to give it the full 5 stars when I wasn’t too sure if I could get my hands on the right apples to replicate some of the recipes. Another book I would gladly put in my recipe bookshelf – and that’s the biggest compliment I can give as space in that shelf is very limited so I’m rather choosey as to what gets through!

Contents: Chapter 1: Introduction to apples; Chapter 2: Apple breakfasts and breads; Chapter 3: Apple drinks and snacks; Chapter 4: Apple salads and sides; Chapter 5: Apples make the meal; Chapter 6: Apple deserts; Chapter 7: Preserving the apple harvest; Chapter 8: Meet the apples: apple varieties. The presentation of this book is quite lovely: different font sizes and colors along with page after page of photographs make this cookbook colorful and inviting. I always look forward to cookbooks with images - I need to know what the final product should look like and how it should be presented. The recipes themselves are also nicely laid out. A call out box has the ingredients, each listed in italics and in a soft red. Steps are listed in numerical short paragraphs in green and black. A short introduction gives more information on the recipe and a large patterned green box has the recipe title and yield. Each recipe gets its own page - making them exceedingly easy to follow and not crowded. The diversity of the recipes is impressive - I didn't see any that felt like 'filler' or stuck in there to bulk up to the 125 count. Nor are there many duplicates (e.g., there are only two types of applesauce recipes). In some recipes the apple is a main ingredient and in others, it may provide natural sweetening or zip. Some surprised me but were quite good; e.g., apple meatloaf and sausage and apple omelets were a hit with the family. Additional information beyond the recipes include background of the apple - cultivation and history, spread, and economics. Canning/preserving, heirloom, organic, storage, and preparation are discussed. There is even a chart on what apple types are best for what purpose: salads, cooking, pies, etc. Various cooking techniques - from microwave cooking to baking are also presented. An appendix with experimental orchard info, apple councils, metric charts, and index are also available in the back. In all, I was highly impressed and couldn't wait to start cooking the recipes. It's a beautiful book that is a joy to browse as well as use. Incredibly informative as well. Reviewed from an advance reader copy.

The information runs from how to choose into almost scientific facts into intoduction of varieties and apple-oriented institution (like university programmes and orchards :)) into lovely small facts like that most the apple perfume cells are concentrated in the skin of an apple. Lovely! And big plus goes for visual, as the book is one of the visually loveliest cookbooks I have ever seen! As for the recipes - the book is totally packed with them and you would never guess the wide possibilities of cooking with apples! If you are curious and creative person with inclination to try the new things or things with a little twist, this book is for you. Unfortunately, you also should be a seasoned cook, as the techniques are not for the beginners and the pictures of the food are missing - the authoress uses a lot of beautifully shot apple pictures, which adds to the visual quality, but I would love the pictures of the food instead, as I am very visual person and in the need to see the result before starting to cook. But if you have better imagination than me, you will enjoy the recipes. Some of my favourite recipes are apple snacks, apple salads (like Apple-Tortellini salad), apple soups (like Apple Ratatouille), and, of course, desserts! The tone is very friendly and authoress offers alot of tips and variations of the recipes. Some of the food included can be added into a very fit and healthy lifestyle, some are more comfort food :) But all seems like a nice treat!

It has some information on the size of apples, and the different kinds of apples (I already knew there were many, but this book has helped me figure out what each kind of apple is good for). Hopping into the recipes is the fun part. There are a few different categories, such as breakfasts and breads (apple and sausage omelette, apple griddle scones, and apple coffee cake - yum), drinks (such as apple tea, frosty apple shakes, and apple smoothies), salads, meals, pies and cakes, and desserts. This book has so many unique and delicious ideas. The only thing I didn't like about the book was that there wasn't any nutrition information in the recipes. I really like having the ability to easily calculate the amount of calories, sodium, etc. This book was a great, creative recipe book for apples, and I recommend it to anyone who loves all things apple.

    In the Netherlands, apples are a big thing. If you don’t eat one regularly it is thought of as weird, and no birthday party goes by without a big piece of traditional apple pie. There stops the Dutch culinary tradition, however. Dutch cuisine is virtually non-existent and most cooking inspiration comes from abroad. But this book might be the change.

Having been a vegetarian for a big part of my life, I missed the vegetarian dinner options! There is only the Apples Make the Meal section, but that only has meat dishes. And I can come up with a lot of tasty vegetarian dishes too, like wraps with veggies, apple and yoghurt sauce. Or in a curry or other rice dish. It is also a pity that hardly any of the recipes are accompanied by a photo of the particular dish. The photos that are there are extremely beautiful, I just wished there were more. The recipes gave me really great (and easy) ideas for some of the stuff that I already make regularly. For example the Iced Apple Tea, which is basically the iced tea that I usually make but now with some apple juice. And it tastes delicious! Most of them only use basic ingredients and techniques, so they are easily accessible to anyone who’s interested.

    What a great reminder to eat healthy apples! This cookbook is more than recipes. It has a rundown of the different varieties, storage and canning tips, and all sorts of apple related goodies. There is a full complement of desserts, but there are also many other recipes that show how you can add the versatile apple into just about any savory meal. I've made three of the recipes so far, and while not inspired, they were all highly edible, and I've been using more apples overall.

    I was questioning the descriptor healthy used in some of the ingredients lists, but now I see that this was first published in 1984 and again in 2000 , which in this millennia's time frame references makes this book almost a relic. I write that preamble in order to conclude with my main thought, which is that I did enjoy this one and want to try a lot of the recipes.
