This review is from: Today's special: A new take on bistro food - Recipes from Arbutus and Wild Honey (Hardcover)
Recipes turn out just like the illustrations! Wonderfully thought out, easy too follow and using everday ingredients. This is one of those cookery books you dont put away on the shelf.
The recipes dont have an excessive amount of ingredients, so they're not too expensive to make.
Really enjoyed this inexpensive book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 29 Oct 2008

This review is from: Today's special: A new take on bistro food - Recipes from Arbutus and Wild Honey (Hardcover)
I have been lucky enough to eat at Anthony Demetre's restaurant, Arubutus (although not Wild Honey yet!) and this books really is as good as that. He is a fantastic chef, not pretentious or over priced and this book really shows you how to cook superb dishes, while not going overboard, or taking ages AND helps you save money by telling you cheaper cuts of meat to use and using seasonal produce. I am a huge fan and this stunning book really is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars a book for our time, 23 Sep 2008
This review is from: Today's special: A new take on bistro food - Recipes from Arbutus and Wild Honey (Hardcover)
It's great to see a chef of our time! Choosing non-trendy but seasonal ingredients means its easy to keep the costs down, and when we're all watching what we spend why not have a dinner party where there's just one (sensational) dish. Buy this book, you'll save money cooking - and impress guests at the same time.

This review is from: Today's special: A new take on bistro food - Recipes from Arbutus and Wild Honey (Hardcover)
Anthony Demetre’s “Today’s Special: A New Take on Bistro Food” shows home cooks how to be creative with cheaper cuts of meat, lesser-known fish and seasonal produce. With chapters on soups, fish, poultry and game, beef and veal, lamb, pork and a small number of desserts, the recipes are clearly explained and easy to follow and Mr Demetre gives some helpful tips at the start of each recipe. The quality of pictures accompanying the recipes means that you can almost taste the food! Dishes such as the fricassee of chicken with spring onion risotto and the navarin of lamb with spring vegetables have become new favourites in my home.
A very well presented book with affordable, achievable and delicious recipes makes this a 5* buy in my opinion.

This review is from: Today's special: A new take on bistro food - Recipes from Arbutus and Wild Honey (Hardcover)
The recipes in this book reflect the food at Arbutus and its sister restaurants.
The recipes work and the results are tasty and interesting.

Having dined at Arbutus - I can assure you that Anthony Demetre's cookbook is as good as the food in his restaurant. Not the usual pap you often see in "celeb" cookbooks - but the real deal - authentic dishes many using cheaper cuts of meat. The recipes in here are going to get used over and over!
