I would be lying if I said I wasn't influenced by Tyler Florence's good looks and charm when I bought this cookbook. 'Real Kitchen' is just as charming and inviting as Tyler. This is a well-written, unpretentious cookbook. I have an extensive collection of cookbooks, especially from tv personalities, and Tyler's 'Real Kitchen' is a must-have. The Drop Dead Lasagna says it all ... whenever I make this for friends and family they all say its the best they've ever tasted. The Croissant French Toast with carmelized apples is phenomenal, as well. Get this one folks, you won't be disappointed.

Interesting to Read, a Bit on the Unusual Side

This is an unusual cookbook in that it was fun to read but a little difficult to use. The recipes are NOT run-of-the mill and I don't have many of the items "on hand" that are essential to the dishes. However, once I bought recipe ingredients, I found the food delicio...
This is an unusual cookbook in that it was fun to read but a little difficult to use. The recipes are NOT run-of-the mill and I don't have many of the items "on hand" that are essential to the dishes. However, once I bought recipe ingredients, I found the food delicious and a little off the beaten path, which was actually quite nice for some parties - providing your guests are somewhat adventurous. However, using the recipes requires planning ahead, so be sure to allow time. I can see how some of the recipes could easily become "signature dishes" for a good cook!

    Disappointed Fan

    I just got this book and was very excited to try the recipes since I am a fan of Tyler's. I made the coconut bread and was not impressed. One TABLESPOON of baking powder seems weird! And tastes even weirder. Checked his other pastry recipes, and they all call for this amount. Help! I may try again using 1 teaspoon.
