Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Chef Ogden (Bradley Odgen's Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner) collects over 150 recipes for Thanksgiving, Christmas and, to a lesser extent, New Year's in this attractive collection that offers diminishing returns as readers work their way through the book. Ogden starts strong with Thanksgiving recipes including Twice-Baked Blue Cheese Soufflés with Citrus-Fennel Salad, a Wood-Grilled Turkey Chop with Wild Mushroom Gravy, and a Sweet Potato Gratin. That momentum carries him through Christmas with Caviar Potato Puffs, Black Mustard Beef Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce, a Chocolate Brioche Pudding, and others. But he hits a wall when it's time for New Year's. An inordinately complicated take on hummus and a lazy acknowledgement of brunch do little to raise spirits for the holiday, though a few dishes do deliver, like Fennel-Cured Gravlax and a Bean Stew with Smoked Ham Hock and Kale. The suggested menus are a nice touch, but other sections do little more than baffle. A puzzling Thanksgiving preparation schedule that isn't paired with any of the menus, text rather than photos for carving a turkey, four vague paragraphs on choosing the right wine, and New Year's Day hangover remedies feel hastily and misguidedly tacked-on. Fans of Ogden and foodies with time on their hands will likely find a few new favorites here, but those new to cooking or pressed for time may find better advice elsewhere. Photos.

From the Publisher

Wolfgang Puck
"Eating at any of Bradley Ogden’s restaurants has always felt like a celebration. So a holiday cookbook from Bradley is ideal. And if you aren’t a personal friend who is lucky enough to be invited to Bradley’s own home for the holidays, Holiday Dinners with Bradley Ogden is the next best thing: You get to cook his recipes, and serve them to your guests as your own holiday creations!"

Jacques Pépin, Chef, cookbook author, and PBS-TV cooking series host
"Your holiday meals may never be the same. Superbly illustrated, classic and modern at the same time, Holiday Dinners with Bradley Ogden has taken American classics and modernized them in thorough, intelligent, and innovative ways. I have enjoyed Bradley’s food for years from Campton Place and One Market in San Francisco and the Lark Creek Inn in Marin County. This genuine American chef from the Midwest has never been better than in this straightforward, honest, and splendid homage to American Cuisine."

Colman Andrews, editorial director, TheDailyMeal.com
“We want our holiday meals to turn out perfectly, and I can't think of a more practiced and trustworthy guide to easy, satisfying, successful special-occasion cooking than Bradley Ogden — one of the original "new American" chefs, and still one of the best.”
 

Library Journal,  Katie Dunneback, Bettendorf Public Library, IA  Sep 15, 2011
In his introduction, Ogden (Bradley Ogden's Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner) addresses why he has added to the abundance of holiday-themed cookbooks. His reasoning is sound in that he clearly expresses an appreciation for "farm fresh" produce and offers up sophisticated recipes for the adventurous home cook. Broken up into sections on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's, the recipes take center stage and are followed by suggested menus and preparation schedules. The especially helpful "Special Note" sections offer tips on identifying fruits and vegetables, and one even tackles hangover remedies. The book is finished off with a coda on warm-weather holiday meals. Home cooks looking to take their dinners and parties to the next level will appreciate this collection.
Personal Favorites: Chive-Onion Popovers with Toasted Cardamom requires a certain mastery of technique, but the dish is simple and delicious. And the Grilled Marinated Flank Steak with Spiced Plum Barbecue Sauce is a sure-fire year-round favorite, with a sauce that is just outside of the ordinary.
