I like a practical book that can also tell a story, and in this case, what a great story it is! The recipes enclosed in this book seem to be enjoyable, but they are not ones I would make for my family because A.' my family is ridiculously picky and won¿t eat lamb, French or Korean food, and B.' there are too many steps and ingredients for a busy single mom. At some point, however, I would like to attempt the spaghetti sauce, which I have never made from scratch, but for now, WHY SHOULD I?! HELLO?! RAGU! I picked this book up because it had a few recipes in it, but also, quite honestly, the cover was funny...a pile of onions with a wildly-dressed chef figurine standing in the middle of it, juggling knives. And his hands...they are greatly out of proportion...HUGE and CREEPY, actually. In this case, judging the book by its cover worked out great! The author didn't let me down. HILARIOUS at times, almost reminding me of David Sedaris. What I learned from this book: ¿ Build on what you know. ¿ Try new things. ¿ Get help from others. ¿ You WILL fail sometimes 'read: practice makes perfect'. Funny, funny, funny! Next, I need to take a look at his website. It's bound to be hilarious.
