Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This is pretty good stuff. The best recipes are the ones that are from the country/local, and country and local restaurants. You know, that places that you go to when you just want a good meal, and don't want to spend a lot of bucks.While some people might complain that this cookbook relies on the east and the south for its recipes, I am from California and as a foodie, I love being able to experience other flavors. Even then, I never heard of a shrimp burger until this book. It is so good. I highly recommend this book. I also highly recommend another book that I haven't cooked a meal with in over a month without referring to. It is called Conquer Your Kitchen, a cookbook reference guide from Chef Jai Scovers. I have learned so much from this book. After all these years, I finally learned how to cook to cook rice! Rice! This book will definitely become a Christmas gift for a lot of people this year!
