Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I believe great food should be made accessible to everyone—no special skills or big bank account required. I was raised by people who knew a rich life had less to do with money than with flavor. Marc Murphy cooks and lives with lots of flavor. His recipes in Season with Authority are can-do, and will make a home cook feel successful and gratified with every dish. This collection is inspiring: The dishes are rock-star good and rock-solid in ease and method.”
Rachael Ray
 
“Marc Murphy is not only a phenomenal chef, with this book he shows that he is also an amazing teacher. He makes cooking fun and approachable without compromising flavor and technique. Season with Authority is a new classic and belongs on the shelf of every home cook.”
Marcus Samuelsson, chef/owner of Red Rooster Harlem 
 
“An absolutely mouthwatering cookbook from one of America’s best chefs! It is impossible to not find something delicious to make, from simple salads and side dishes to gorgeous roasts and simple grills. This is a must-have for anyone’s culinary library.”
Geoffrey Zakarian, Iron Chef 
 
“Marc’s book is filled with delicious recipes that reflect not only his expertise but also his unpretentious nature. Each recipe shares a story from his journey, which is sure to encourage any home cook.”
Daniel Boulud, chef/owner of The Dinex Group 
 
“Marc Murphy has crafted an outstanding cookbook. Marc’s amazing background, having lived and worked in Italy, France, and America, allows him to create dishes that are very classic, yet he can quite knowledgeably add his own distinctive twists. Marc is a confident chef who has that unique ability to make his recipes both easy and fun to read, and even easier to cook from. A delicious cookbook that is both exciting and practical—a triumph.”
Jonathan Waxman, chef/owner of Barbuto NYC

Very good cookbook. I'll admit I was somewhat surprised that I liked it so much. Many, many recipes that appeal to my family, both basic as well as fancy. Great addition to my library.

Tried to see what was what about this cookbook on the Read Instantly.  It is in ebook format.  All the is shown is 2 pictures on of a hamburger & the other of a salad.  Everything else is Acknowledgements & his personal info on how he got started etc.  23 pages of nothing.  Not even an index to show what recipes are in this book.  One page shows the  Vegetable, Dessert, Pantry & Index but if you click on one of those words you get end of page.  Very bad PR for this book.
