Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Atlanta native Gerry Garvin was just barely 23 when he was named sous chef at the prestigious Ritz-Carlton Palm Springs. In his second book, the colorful star of Turn Up the Heat with G. Garvin dishes out 200 family recipes. Garvin emphasizes simplicity in chapters with titles such "Meals in Minutes," "Lunchtime Favorites, "Thrill of the Grill," and "The Sweetest Part-Desserts." He underlines his straight-to-the-table philosophy with "Garvin's Gotta Be Quick" tips sprinkled generously throughout the book.

    BRINGS HOME THE FLAVA!

    Wow! My husband picked up G's book, and after 15 years of marriage, he's finally in the kitchen 'Turning Up The Heat' and cracking pots. Our family love the tasty and easy to put down recipes. They are soooooo good!

    Definitely Super Simple!

    I bought this book two days ago and when I sat down to mark the pages of recipes I wanted to try I realized I marked the entire book! I've already tried two dishes and I love it! Although he doesn't have a lot of pictures, it is his first book and I've already seen the other two books to know that he listened to his readers and added more pictures to his other two books. I can't wait to try more recipes and then try them with some of my friends! I consider myself someone who knows how to cook but is afraid to experiment and trying these recipes makes me want to cook all the time now!! I bought this book because a friend made the Bourbon BBQ wings and WOW if you ove Buffalo Wings you MUST try that sauce!

    Awesome cookbook

    I found the cookbook very detailed and easy to follow. Garvin's presentation of southern food takes it to the next level while still keeping a traditional feel. Although I like trying new recipes and even new presentations, I really enjoy a cookbook to offer everyday recipes as well(which this cookbook offers). The only thing I would suggest is more pictures. Most cookbooks in my opinion need more pics. If you've never made the dish before you want an idea of what it should look like.

    Turn up the Heat with G. Garvin

    I love wonderful cookbooks -- to me, a cookbook worthy of being included in my extensive collection has to entertain as well as provide a source of mouthwatering recipes -- I'm so glad my niece purchased this book for me because it is both entertaining, and I've made some wonderful dishes from it.
