Do you think you have the absolute best recipe for apple pie? Maybe your neighbor claims to make the best meatloaf around. Did your Italian grandmother serve the best spaghetti sauce this side of the Atlantic? Well, unless you or that neighbor or your grandmother is Ann Hodgman, you’re wrong!

The book that the editor in chief of Vanity Fair called “the funniest, most engaging book about food I’ve ever come across” has now been revised and updated: more than half the recipes are completely new, and many of the originals have been “oomphed up” to make them even more shamelessly delicious.

Beat This! Cookbook contains more than a hundred all-time favorites, from Burnt Sugar Ice Cream and White Chocolate Raspberry Pie to Chili-Cheese Casserole and Onion Rings. Each one is guaranteed to make people take a bite, stagger with joy, and beg you for the recipe.


Here is a challenge few cooks can resist: put these recipes up against the best of your own. In this book, Spy magazine's original food columnist throws down the gauntet with a solid collection of can't-fail recipes that most readers will find irresistible - and unbeatable. Whether it's for cheesecake, crab cakes, chicken salad, blueberry pie, beef stew, or fudge, the author takes all-time North American favorite dishes and pulls out all the stops.

One my favourite cookbooks, BEAT THIS offers recipes that author Ann Hodgman says are the best of their kind. Looking for the best lemon squares, brownies, devilled eggs or roast chicken? BEAT THIS won''t disappoint. The peach pie recipe is absolutely to die for! Hodgman''s commentary on her recipes is very funny, and the book''s quirky organization (alphabetical by the recipe title, rather than grouped by course) makes a unique volume that I''ve used over and over and over.
