5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful book 24 Nov 2005
By Javier E. Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book because I wanted to learn how to make those mouth watering roasted dishes one sees on TV. The book has tons of recipes sorted in different categories like starters, fish, poultry, meats, vegetables, etc. The book starts by explaining the basics of roasting and the utensils you'll need. The recipes are easy to follow and explicit enough to know how wide to cut the ingredients for example. All this without extending more than necessary. I particularly like the BIG, colorful and sharp pictures that come with every recipe. It has helped me get an idea on how the dish should look like. Not all steps have a picture, only those that are prone to confusion do.

I have made several recipes from the book and the feedback has been very positive, and I'm not an expert or anything. Based on this I'm thinking of buying more books from this author and/or publisher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Roasting Cook Book 19 Mar 2012
By Pete Wx - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The William Sonoma Roasting Cookbook is a great tool for people like me who are trying to learn how to prepare a delicious special meal for friends and family, especially for a special occasion. As always in their cookbooks, the illustrations and photos are superb. A whole meal plan is presented, giving you the opportunity to prepare a well coordinated meal, or substitute your favorite or desired replacement dish. So far, the Crown Rib Roast has proven itself a great launch point in exploring the book. it was delicious, and the wild rice side dish enhanced the overall meal. Great buy for the special price I got thru Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just What I Was Looking for 15 Feb 2011
By C. Rice - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book I one of about 4 I have ordered in the last week and I just got it today. Some details about roasting, but even better some recipes that are varied and somewhat more simple with ingredients than some of the other books I have ordered. Thats ok too........ I have ordered several books on maybe one particular topic like roasting, some will be more detailed about the equipment and various techniques and some have recipes that are more detailed and maybe slightly complicated because they involve cooking with wines or some ingredients that I don't normally use. Adding this book to the stack makes it perfect. For a beginner cook just starting to learn to roast this is a perfect book and I would highly recommend it. I like the color pictures this book displays. I was really impressed with this book as sometimes Williams Sonoma books can be more for the fancier chefs or professionals where this one fits my style perfect. Recipes using spices that will be an easy find and most don't require a lot of cooking with different types of wines. This is just what I was looking for and can't wait to try some of the recipes out. I can master these and move on to some of the other books about roasting that I have purchased!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars What An Excellent Roasting Book 19 May 2009
By Tan Tian Sin - Published on Amazon.com
Excellent book. My wife is very happy upon receiving it during her birthday because she can't find an excellent roasting book in our country's book stores. She has been looking for almost 2 years before I surprised her with this book. She now starting to try most of the recipes and I am enjoying her fruitful roasted dish, yum-yum.
