This is an excellent compendium of recipes from the TV show that has been running in the US for 12 years now. If you have cable/sky you may have PBS which shows this programme. I stumbled upon this show one weekend and was very impressed by their philosophy and ethos. They are not about fancy ingredients or exotic cooking. They are about good home cooking and testing cooking techniques and cooking equipment. The chemistry of cooking is explained and I've picked up lots of useful tips and tricks: brining meat, rinsing potatoes halfway through cooking for fluffier mash, etc. Bearing in mind this is an american book there a number of things that still make it applicable to the UK market. First, is the inclusion of conversions. You may notice one of the criticisms of american books on this site, is the use of cup measures. This is hardly an arduous task but can cause variations in the weight of ingredients, so I was pleased to see weight equivalents. Second, the recipes are extensively tested and while some of the techniques and/or ingredients may seem odd, the results are highly reliable. The book covers everything from soup and salad to takeaway favourites to baking and desserts. Finally, I've noticed that some of the US reviews have criticised the book for not including all the recipes from the show. I had to admit that I've found all the recipes that appealed to me in the book. A quick search on the internet will usually deliver any missing recipes. This book is all about home cooking with easy-to-find ingredients, so if you are after gourmet or ethnic cooking, this is not the book for you. This book is aimed at Americans living in America, so the product and equipment reviews will mean nothing to UK consumers. Given this isn't the main purpose of the book, I really don't mind.Read more ›

Cookbook that concentrates on techniques rather than celebrity. The recipes are multi stage, so may look complicated, but often involve procedures which mean the food is left to marinate for a number of hours, or cooked at 2 different temperatures. allow for the fact that the American taste is often sweeter than Uk, so sugar quantities can be reduced to taste. A good buy, regenerating my cooking!

I love cooking and this is a perfect book for the home cook. The recipes are very easy to follow and foolproof, once you work out the American measurements.

This book doesn't just tell you what to do; it tells you why. The measurements are in American cups and the meat cuts are different from ours but it's no big deal to convert them or find suitable alternatives. It's a real must-have for any serious cook.

Enjoyed this tv series so much but sadly, the book doesn't contain every recipe that is shown on the box which is normally the one you want to cook, still a cook cookery book, specially if you are looking for that US style
