To Our Valued Members
This year, you’ll find a new chapter, “Stretching Your Food Dollar,” in the
beginning of the book. We have asked leading experts, including Sandra Lee
and Christopher Kimball of Cook’s Illustrated magazine, to share tips on
creating a food budget, buying in bulk, stretching meals, storing food and
making the most of the leftovers—all relevant topics in these economic times.
This chapter also includes advice from authors Kati Neville and Lindsay Tkacsik
on their “fix, freeze and feast” method, and concludes with a couple dozen
great ideas from Costco members, which I think you’ll find particularly clever.
Again this year, some of the recipes have nutritional information listed
with them. This is helpful for anybody watching calories and following a
controlled, healthful diet.
Above everything else, the secret to all the great dishes featured in this book
is top-quality ingredients. When you purchase your ingredients from Costco,
you know that you are getting the best—and at a great price.
We hope you enjoy Home Cooking The Costco Way and try out our recipes
with your family and friends. You can also find our past years’ cookbooks
online at Costco.com. Just type “Costco Cookbooks” in the search window
on our home page.
Bon appétit from all of us at Costco!
