What a treat to have a cookbook full of culinary school recipes. My secret dream is to go to culinary school. I know I never will but I cook a few of these recipes every week and dream I am there with the chefs and the students banging pots and pans. Its a nice dream and I enjoy it but the best part is I've learned new recipes that I love and my husband thinks are super. Here are my favorite recipes so far: chicken yakatori which was really easy (and the first time I ever made Chinese food) and super on the grill. Warm salad with bacon and poached egg which I made before the holiday and was great because it was so fast and so easy and made me feel like a 4 star chef! Zucchini thyme fritters which I made with chicken breasts and my eldest liked them so much I had to make a second batch the next day. Here’s what I am going to make next: the fava bean salad. I’ve never had fava beans but I’m feeling bold and brave and this looks super easy. Quiche with asparagus and pancetta which I am going to make for my book club next week because that will wow them. And this Sunday I am going to get eggs at the market and make hollandaise and if I master that, it really will be like going to culinary school.
The recipes are great and the stories are super and I recommend this book to anyone who wants some good, clear, workhorse recipes they can use again and again for their family.
(I don't know why Barnes and Noble won't let me leave my name on the review but here it is: Charlene Dade so you know this is real)

I made my fist successful quiche thanks to this book and served it to my mother-in-law who said it was very good. Very good from my mother-in-law means it was the best thing she has ever had, very highest praise. Excellent recipes if it makes my mother-in-law smile!Was this review helpful?
