Overview

Tyler Florence's Real Kitchen by Tyler Florence, JoAnn Cianciulli

Bold. Unfussy. Irresistible. Real.

That’s the kind of food that comes out of Tyler Florence’s kitchen. With a culinary sensibility refined in some of New York’s most high-profile restaurants, and a down-home practicality gained as the cooking guru of Food 911, Tyler cooks food that’s fresh, flavorful, and totally doable. In Tyler Florence’s Real Kitchen, he’ll show you how to cook simple meals that taste amazing, from comfort-food to classics to vibrantly new dishes.

Tyler’s long-awaited first cookbook stays true to his cooking philosophy—use great, simple ingredients and then let the natural flavors speak for themselves. He offers can’t-miss recipes for all the crowd-pleasing dishes that you crave—cold fried chicken, a perfect meatloaf, or drop-dead lasagna. Tyler’s bold, uncomplicated style even makes sophisticated food easy, with recipes like Pan-Roasted Sirloin with Arugula, Sweet Peppers, and Olive Salad or Steamed Mussels with Saffron and Tomato. He’ll show you how to get a great meal from the grocery bag to the table with the least fuss and the most flavor, or how to throw a barbecue with the best burgers (spiced up with horseradish and Havarti cheese) that your friends have ever had. From weekend brunch (including Soft Scrambled Eggs with Salmon and Avocado and an assortment of dim sum) to quick weeknight dinners for two (like Hong Kong Crab Cakes with Baby Bok Choy), and a selection of great party food and cocktails, this is a cookbook you’ll use again and again and rely on for every occasion.

With helpful notes on essential pantry staples and a list of the kitchen equipment you really need, Tyler Florence’s Real Kitchen is a fresh, creative exploration of just how fun (and delicious) your cooking can be.

This is an unusual cookbook in that it was fun to read but a little difficult to use. The recipes are NOT run-of-the mill and I don't have many of the items "on hand" that are essential to the dishes. However, once I bought recipe ingredients, I found the food delicious and a little off the beaten path, which was actually quite nice for some parties - providing your guests are somewhat adventurous. However, using the recipes requires planning ahead, so be sure to allow time. I can see how some of the recipes could easily become "signature dishes" for a good cook!

I'll admit that I bought this because I have a slight crush on Mr. Florence...but this has become by far my favorite cookbook. It's down to earth, it's written for real people and the recipes deliver every time.

I would be lying if I said I wasn't influenced by Tyler Florence's good looks and charm when I bought this cookbook. 'Real Kitchen' is just as charming and inviting as Tyler. This is a well-written, unpretentious cookbook. I have an extensive collection of cookbooks, especially from tv personalities, and Tyler's 'Real Kitchen' is a must-have. The Drop Dead Lasagna says it all ... whenever I make this for friends and family they all say its the best they've ever tasted. The Croissant French Toast with carmelized apples is phenomenal, as well. Get this one folks, you won't be disappointed.

You will lean so much from this book, cooking with fresh ingredients and easy techniques.

At first glance, many of the recipes looked too complicated and/or expensive to make. We have a 3-month-old son and so I don't exactly have time to spend hours slaving over the stove. However, once I really sat down and read the recipes, they aren't too hard for someone who knows the basics of cooking. Yes, some of the ingredients are a little pricier but the results are so worth it and with a well-stocked pantry and refrigerator, I found most of the recipes only take buying one or two things (such as the meat). So far, I have tried quite a few of the recipes and really enjoyed making the dishes. The most outstanding one I have made was the Sage-Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Dried Plum Sauce. I used a Biltmore Estate Merlot, which seemed to be perfect in the sauce, and the dish turned out absolutely great! The sauce is such a beautiful, deep-red color and the pork tenderloin was indeed tender...it's the kind of dish you would pay $20 to $30 a plate for at a restaurant. I would definitely recommend this cookbook to anyone who knows their way around the kitchen at least a little, and enjoys making simple, yet elegant dishes.

I've tried Tyler's recipes from the tv shows and now have his book - the recipes are easy to follow and have tasted great! Try the beef bourguignon - it is outstanding and really was as easy to prepare as it is listed in the cookbook. I can't wait to try out more recipes!

This is a wonderful cookbook, with fresh recipes and simple cooking techniques. I just got this book and have already tried three recipes-the Hong Kong Crab Cakes with Baby Bok Choy are great! The photographs in the book are beautiful, and the recipes are well written with clear instructions. I am a serious home cook, and this book is already one of my favorites-and I have more than 100 cookbooks.

This book is full of wonderful and original recipes that anyone could make. Tyler is out and about traveling the country meeting his fans at book signings and he is so wonderful in person. He is very humble and personable. If you get the opportunity to meet him you will be impressed with how nice and real he is. Try the Drop Dead Lasagna...wonderful!!! Look for him on Food TV.

I have a lot of cookbooks, and I appreciate those that I can really use. This book has wonderful recipes (I've already tried a couple, and I just got the book yesterday) that appeal to most every palate-and most don't require a trip to a specialty store!

Bought three of Tyler's books to take to a book signing. Two were for gifts and I was keeping one. This is the one I decided to keep, althought it was hard to pick one over the others.

Tyler Florence has a gift for simplifying recipes and making them less "daunting". I bought this book as a gift and ended up getting another one for myself.

I just got this book and was very excited to try the recipes since I am a fan of Tyler's. I made the coconut bread and was not impressed. One TABLESPOON of baking powder seems weird! And tastes even weirder. Checked his other pastry recipes, and they all call for this amount. Help! I may try again using 1 teaspoon.
