Editorial Reviews

Food Network regular will instant recognize the concept behind this book: As the host of the channel's 5 Ingredient Fix, author Claire Robinson presents easy-to-make recipes with no more than five ingredients. Like the show, her debut cookbook demonstrates that this guideline is no harsh limitation. In fact, her recipes for dishes like Maple-Candied Bacon, Grilled Scallops with Saffron Aioli, and Brioche French Toast with Strawberries and Cream show that her penchant for fresh ingredients and distinctive flavors turn simple fare into delectable feasts. Especially appealing for kitchen newbies, but a fine resource for any home cook.

Publishers Weekly
Robinson, host of two TV shows on the Food Network, 5 Ingredient Fix and Food Network Challenge, has written her first book, a collection of recipes composed of five ingredients or fewer. Robinson was influenced by her grandmother, "a classic entertainer," and her mother, "a do-it-from-scratch, all natural bohemian," and describes her own cooking style as combining the best of both worlds: she creates easy-to-prepare yet elegant meals by using just a handful of fresh, seasonal ingredients and letting them shine. The recipes are immensely appealing, familiar yet intriguing, and nearly every one is accompanied by a full-color, mouthwatering photograph. There are classic combinations, like maple-candied bacon, pork roast with cider gravy, bourbon baked beans, and bananas foster, as well as some intriguing ensembles, such as roast chicken with fennel and ginger, mushroom carpaccio, Indian corn with curry yogurt, and smoky roasted peaches. Particularly appealing are the little morsels that go along with each recipe detailing how the flavors and textures work together and the suggestions of "what to toss in if you have it." A list of menu ideas in the back groups recipes by theme. A great book for beginners as well as more seasoned cooks looking to both streamline and augment their routines. (Oct.)
