Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
For those who want sass, attitude, and a fly-by-night-feel, sisters Albert and Gnat offer up a fun collection of 175 recipes pulled together in a quirky package complete with offbeat photos (think grandma vacuuming another grandma, an underwear-clad woman emerging from a washing machine, and miniature firemen using fettuccine as a hose). Chapters broken down by course or protein include Catch Me (fish), Gobble Me (chicken), and Fork Me (dessert). Dishes range from the gluttonous, nongourmet sky-high potato skins, and gooey monkey bread with caramel glaze, to more healthful and sophisticated options including restorative roasted vegetable soup, and miso glazed cod. While helpful kitchen tips are included, sidebars lean toward the entertaining and include "Tunes to Cook To" and Top 10 lists, falling in line with the authors goal to "speak to more than just your stomach" and offer a "multisensory smorgasbord." Serious cooks will most likely shy away from this one, but fun-loving ladle-wielding ones will enjoy this title's light-heartedness. (Nov.)
