5.0 out of 5 stars A real taste of New York,
I found this book by chance in a book shop, and after visiting New York a few years ago and LOVING the food, I thought I'd give it a go and I'm glad I did. The book is divided into chapters in a New Yorkers Day - Coffee Time, Breakfast Time, Brunch Time, Lunch Time, Snack Time, Any Time and Extras. It contains many famous and typical New York meals, such as, Mac and Cheese, Smoked Salmon and Cream Chesse Bagels, etc.
The author also gives you many recipes from other cultures in New York, like Matzo Ball soup, and Chinese Pork Buns, and one I can't wait to try - Cholent, which has to be cooked for 15 HOURS.
Some of the recipes included come from some of New Yorks most famous eateries, for example, KATZ Deli is mentioned with a couple of recipes, and the Hop Shing Restaurant.
It really is a perfect window to allow you to peer in to New York food without actually going there.

5.0 out of 5 stars serious risk to your waistline!,
Its an awesome book that brings back memories of the time i spent in NY.
Simple to follow instructions, great pictures and food that tastes like you are in the neighbourhood.
Its risky for the waistline because those New Yorkers love the calories

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book,
I bought this book as a gift for my son, who spends most of his holidays in the USA, so he was pleased to receive it. There is a fantastic selection of recipes, which included all of the things that he loves to eat when he is in the USA and he was very much looking forward to trying them out. The book is very well presented, with excellent photographs - think I might buy another copy for myself!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book,
This book is worthy to grace any coffee table...or book shelf, whilst I admit not all the recipes appeal to me, nor are they the most mind blowing...that isn't really what this book is to me....it is a memory of the times I have spent in NYC, full of beautiful illustrations and photographs, could spend hours browsing through it....warning though...it will make you want to visit New York!!

I have tried a number of the recipies now and think they are great and easy to follow. There has been the odd occasion where I have to substitute an ingredient but it has worked out well. Recommend book.
