A great cookbook for everybody,
This review is from: Get Cooking (Paperback)
This is a great cook book - I have all of Sam Stern's books (so far) and this is the one I have used most. I haven't found a bad recipe in it and can always find something different to do for dinner in it.
My teenage children received the books for Christmas a few years ago, and I have used them all ever since. I am obviously not a teenager and would recommend the recipes for everyone. I use far more recipes in Sam Stern's books than Delia or Jamie or any of the other well known chefs. The general rule with recipe books (I understand) is that you have a few recipes in each book you can use - it's not the case with these - there I loads I do quite regularly, and still more to try as he also suggests variations on the same recipe.
The recipes are all pretty simple to prepare and quite quick too - always a bonus.
The food is always good too - my husband is quite fussy but enjoys all the dishes I have done for him - cooking for the family has improved hugely since I got these books. Give them all a go!
