Loved Alex on The Next Iron Chef.  Was so glad when she won on Iron Chef: Road to Redemption. I was totally rooting for her!  If you are a fan of Alex you will enjoy reading the bio stuff in this cookbook about her family and her cooking career. I have also already used a wonderful cooking tip from her book today while making a sandwich that is ingenious!  The thing about using the grater, so simple but so wonderfully amazing!  Love it!

I found her recipes easy and enjoyed making several of them. They were easy to follow. I especially enjoyed reading the stories she wrote.

I ordered Alex's book and couldn't wait to get it in the mail, only to be very disappointed. The stories she shared of her family and her journey becoming a professional chef were interesting to read, but I didn't find but a few recipes that tugged me in to try. I don't know what I expected, but this is not the first cookbook I will open when I want to make something different. Sorry Alex, better luck with number two!
