1.0 out of 5 stars Named and Shamed, 9 Dec. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Great Fast Food (Hardcover)
First let me say that I am a fan of Gary Rhodes. I treasure New British Classics and frequently cook from Short-Cut Rhodes, which I thought this book was extending. I heartily recommend those 2 books. I excitedly brought this one home today and opened it up, only to discover that it didn't sound like Gary Rhodes' superb writing voice at all. Upon investigation of the photo credits page, the reason became clear. Almost all of the recipes have been borrowed from (and duly credited to) cookbooks by Reader's Digest, Family Circle, Homes & Gardens, Ideal Home, Woman's Journal and 30 Minute cookbooks by other authors. I would be very surprised if Gary Rhodes came anywhere near this book. It is the worst kind of example of celebrity chef sell-out. And I am a huge fan of Gary Rhodes. Imagine what his enemies will think. Please go back to your wonderful strengths, Gary, and take your name off of this book and others like them. As for me, I just hope I can find the receipt for this book...

I think this review is incorrect. Looking at the credit page it appears to me that these are Gary Rhodes recipes that have first appeared elsewhere. They are not from other authors. I use this book a lot and the recipes are fine.
