20 Cookbooks in 1 Sep 13, 2007
Warning! If you purchase this book you will soon be purchasing several others. No seriously, this is a wonderful and really under rated book. I got it at a Christmas gift exchange last year and since then I have purchased 5 of the cookbooks listed after making and loving several of the recipes. This is a great book if you want to be exposed to chefs you might otherwise miss. The recipes are excellent, you get the feel of the cookbooks listed and you get to try the recipes before deciding on purchasing the books. It is laid out really well with an introduction by the cookbook author followed by several of the recipes featured in their books. This is also a great book if you are on a budget and can't just pick up 20 new cookbooks. Lastly, it is a perfect present because it has something for everyone. I strongly, strongly recommend it!
Great for those that want to try something new! Aug 18, 2007
I love this book! I am 2/3 of the way through making each and every recipe. Yes, some of the recipes I won't make again but there is at least one recipe from each chef that is superb and I can't wait to make it again. My family personally liked the Grilled Tuna Salad with Habanero mayo from Bobby Flay and Devil's Chicken Thighs with Braised Leeks from Sunday Suppers at Lucques has got to be the best thing I have ever made/eaten. The only negative thing I can say is that most of the asian recipes have ingredients that you can't get at a mainstream grocery store. There is a great variety of recipes and it is very fun to always have something new to make. Also, the recipe of Baked Pasta with Ricotta and Ham doesn't have a misprint. If it is read correctly the instructions first say to add the tomato sauce to some other ingredients and then later it says to start layering the sauce mixture in the pan. Finally, if you like Brussel Sprouts as much as I do there is a recipe for Shredded Brussels Sprouts Salad that is absolutely divine!!
Needs editing. Aug 12, 2007
Aviod this cookbook. After trying three recipes, I've decided to throw the book away (I wouldn't sabotage anyone else by donating this to a book sale). The first recipe I tried "Baked Pasta with Ricotta and Ham" has an error. There is a listing for 1 1/2 cups of tomato sauce in the ingredients list, instruction on step 2 to add the tomato sauce then step 5 again directs you to...add the tomato sauce. No divided amounts or 1 1/2 cups each. Your guess is as good as mine. The second recipe for "green chili soft tacos" is suitable for anyone on a bland diet. Boiled tofu has more snap. And the blueberry cake left me wishing I'd saved those poor, innocent berries for something tastier than a dessert which could be proudly served in any Dennys.
