While there are mountains of cookbooks featuring five-minute, three-ingredient, weeknight recipes for harried households, here is a book for food lovers who want to lose themselves in the delight of perfectly slow-roasting a leg of lamb—Mexican style—or whipping up a showstopping triple-layer cake. Ted is just such a cook and in his latest cookbook he shakes up expectations by topping bruschetta with tomatoes and strawberries; turning plums, sugar, and a bay leaf into an irresistible quick jam; putting everything you can think of on the grill—from ribs and pork shoulder to chiles and green beans; and modernizing the traditional holiday trio of turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce with fresh ingredients and a little booze. And where there’s a will to make something from scratch, Ted provides a way, with recipes for homemade pickles, pizza, pasta, pork buns, preserved lemons, breads, quick jam, marshmallows, and more.
With more than 100 amazing recipes and gorgeous color photographs throughout, In My Kitchen is perfect for passionate home cooks looking for inspiring new recipes and techniques to add to their playbooks.

I have not cooked anything from the book yet, but love the pictures and the receipes, especially the fresh vegetables. This is not a cookbook for a quick week day meal, but rather a book to pick up when you want to enjoy a wonderful meal, utilizing only the freshest ingredients you can purchase and have the time to relax and cook. Looking forward to the summer, the farmstands are open, and Ted's In My Kitchen will be front and center in my kitchenWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
