Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Taking a cue from Rachael Ray, popular chef and television personality Lagasse (Emeril at the Grill, Emeril's New Orleans Cooking, etc.) presents a solid collection of favorites grouped by preparation time. Cooks opting for the 20 minute option have the most dishes to choose from, but Lagasse offers ideas for starters, mains and desserts in all three time frames. Fans will recognize a number of favorites here-Fish En Papillote, Bruschetta, Pasta Primavera, Steak Au Poivre-as well as new dishes sure to agree with families, including Fettucine with Peas and Ham and a simple but delicious BLT with avocado and basil mayo. Legasse includes a smattering of the Creole and Cajun dishes he's known for (an Italian po-boy dressed with Louisiana hot sauce mayo, Shrimp Etouffe, Trout a La Meuniere, a riff on Bananas Foster), but there are just as many comfort food standards like Sloppy Joes, wings, and macaroni and cheese as palate-pushing entrees. Aside from a few surprises, Lagasse keeps distractions to a minimum, focusing on recipes that are sure to resonate with fans: reliable, everyday dishes that highlight flavor, not flair.

Library Journal
In the second entry (after Emeril at the Grill) in his new trade paperback series, the host of Food Network's Emeril Live rewards his loyal but time-challenged fans with dishes that can be made in under an hour. Divided into three sections ("20 Minutes or Less," "40 Minutes or Less," and "60 Minutes or More"), the 145 easy recipes include as few ingredients as possible. For example, Simple Italian Wedding Soup can be made in 11 minutes with eight ingredients. With step-by-step instructions and photos, this is a great title for culinary novices and home cooks with busy schedules. [See also Guiliano Hazan's Thirty Minute Pasta, reviewed above.—Ed.]

What a great cookbook for the qluick, but out-of-the-ordinary meal! Every recipe that I've tried has been a definite "do-again" and Emeril has lived up to the timelines he sets for each recipe. As an avid collector of cookbooks, I would rank this one as one of my current favorites.

I cant say I am a big Emeril fan. In the past some of his dishes were diffcult to cook. Too many things going on at once. I have to say I am glad I gave Emeril another chance. I liked the price of this book and the title caught my eye. I also like the way the book is set up. You can decide on how much time you have to cook. Emeril's book contains yummy recipes for busy families and couples etc. When I started looking at the recipes I knew I had to buy this. I made the turkey and wild rice salad. My boyfriend and his friends loved it. I used a smoker to cook the turkey. It came out moist and juicy. I also enjoyed the skillet corn cake. Instead of the cherries I used blueberries. This is a great buy. The recipes dont have too many steps and over priced ingredients.

I have other Emeril books from his past and so far this is the best one. My kids especially love the recipes in this book. Plus they are so easy to do unlike some of his other recipes in the past. Each recipe I've made came out delicious.

I've prepared several recipes from this book that have been delicious. The instructions are easy to follow and the prep times given are very realistic. This book makes a terrific gift for someone who enjoys cooking on limited time.
