This book is fabulous. I'm a huge fan of Top Chef, and this book definitely lived up to the hype. There is such an eclectic mix of recipes from the chefs throughout the seasons. I love the variety. Also, the character bios are great. Definitely a great gift!

This is a great gift for any die-hard top chef fan! It has recipes for tons of quick-fire challenges across all seasons so far. GREAT pictures and visuals. The number of recipes is huge, but it also contains fun facts and little features of various cast members. It highlights the most innovative and successful dishes. I haven't cooked any of the recipes myself, so I don't know how they'll turn out, but the book is flashy and exciting and LOOKS delicious! A great gift for a foodie.

We did not expect this book to be so nice, it has this fancy exterior and strong hardback. We love the illustrations and the explainations for this book. We have tried some of the recipes and the food is so good. When you cook for people they will think you are a fancy chef.

...this book could make you an enthusiastic fan of the show. It's become my armchair guide to watching the reruns of seasons 1-5, because it's full of information about the show, the cast, and the contestants, AND, now that I have the recipes in front of me, I can try them in MY kitchen. Of course I can say that I'm getting more out of TOP CHEF by having this reference when I observe the creative processes of inspired, talented people who can dream up flavor experiences in small bites while under the enormous pressure of a televised competition, but the book also stands alone as a great inspiration for the home chef. I'm looking forward to a next volume!
