HASH(0x8b34d1e0) out of 5 stars A USEFUL and beautiful cookbook. A Definite Keeper! 1 May 2010
By Sparkle - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I received this fantastic cookbook today and read it cover to cover. It is filled with recipes that are articulated in a way that makes it easy, yet would lead guests to proclaim your genuis. The Blue Ribbon Restaurant in SoHo, NYC is famous for it's late nights, delicious, interesting food and Chef sightings.

The recipes have stories, pictures and step by step instructions that are easily followed. At times when an ingredient or a technique is used in a surprising way, like brown and white sugar on frizzled leeks, or Matzoh flour for extra crispiness on fried chicken, there is always a story of why it makes a difference. The "make ahead" or "will hold on the counter" tips are super helpful.

For the everyday cook, there are plenty of recipes to keep your family happy and fed, with a little twist; like Cripsy Cornish Game Hens and Really Good Brisket For the adventurous cook, you can't go wrong; their famous Marrow Bones with Oxtail Marmalade recipe is included in the book. You can really knock your guests socks off with these simple but impressive dishes.

Besides the great recipes and the "blue ribbon wisdom" snippets (that give great tips) I think what I loved most of all was the humility and thankfulness the Bromberg brothers showed when incorporating the personal stories about the Chef's, cooks, family and friends that were there along the way.

If you love to cook, this one is for you. I can't wait to begin making some of these dishes. This will be one of my most used cookbooks.

I also can't wait for my next trip back to NYC, for another late night at The Blue Ribbon on Sullivan! It's a welcoming place where "dinner" at 2am feels like 10pm, the place is so respectfully lively.

HASH(0x8b34d234) out of 5 stars Blue Ribbon Restaurant cooking 27 April 2010
By wogan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The Bromberg brothers have made a cookbook from recipes used at their late night restaurant. Most are not that difficult or complicated, they could even be used by a dedicated beginning cook. There are stories in each section of their cooking philosophy and pictures for almost every recipe. Blue Ribbon wisdom bits give very good advice; such as: cleaning clams/shellfish, using garlic, soufflés- is it done yet? and perfect scrambled eggs are just some of the subjects.
One example of the type of recipe found, is our family's favorite that also uses up our garden squash, is simple and yet impressive for company: arugula and butternut squash salad.
There are a few sources for ingredients and an index by ingredient, name and photograph.
The sections covered are: snacks, appetizers, soups and salads, main dishes, vegetables and sides, desserts, breakfast and brunch, sandwiches, sauces, stocks and condiments, including a great and easy recipe on how to make garlic dill pickles.
In total, it's a good cookbook, interesting and even better if you are a fan of the Bromberg's restaurants

HASH(0x8b34d66c) out of 5 stars spectacular easy results 29 May 2010
By Thor - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I highly recommend this cookbook. I made the Blue Ribbon Pulled Pork from the cookbook for a party last weekend and it was FANTASTIC! Everyone loved it so much we are doing it again for a graduation party for my daughter next weekend. We also made the cole slaw which was spectacular, and the egg salad with their homemade mayonaisse which was excellent. My 18 year old daughter has tried 6 or 7 of the other recipies (including french toast, fried chicken steak, scookies) all with excellent results. It is even fun to read this cookbook - the stories about the recipies and the restaurants are really fun. Great great cookbook.

What a home slice! This cookbook is a must-own because of it's depth of flavor, meaty goodness, and creamy base. Everything in here really is precious and yet still all-American. Yes, some of the recipes are time consuming, but they're surprisingly straight forward and a good bit of fun. For example the pulled pork sandwich recipe required hours of simmering but was it ever worth it! I had no idea I was capable of making a mean homemade bbq sauce, but now I can. If you aren't in for a long hearty American adventure you might at least want this for the buttermilk pancake recipe. It's the only pancake recipe that I have run across that mixes light and fluffy with broad and thick. They say in the book that its a combination recipe between a crepe and a pancake. I think it's magic.

HASH(0x8b34d9e4) out of 5 stars Wonderful recipes 9 Jan. 2012
By Susan Rawlings - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is worth it's weight in gold. I am a collector of cookbooks and have a lot of books filled with fancy photographs that deliver average recipes. This book is packed with 5 star keepers! Seriously, the fried chicken and matzo ball soup make the book worth the price just for 2 incredible recipes. I can't wait to cook my way through this entire book. Completely worth it!
