2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 4 Sept. 2013
By dbish - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I liked the idea in the description that pro chefs don't use salt and pepper together indiscriminately but independently as needed (I learned something!). Expected more of same - that was only gem in book. I donated my copy to the library as I had no need to keep it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something special 30 Oct. 2003
By Lynn Harnett - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Organized alphabetically by chef, each chapter in this delighful collection includes a full dinner menu from such names as Zarela Martinez, Madeleine Kamman, Rick Bayless and Barbara Tropp.
Noel Cunningham cooks a romantic dinner of warm goat cheese and mixed greens salad, roast loin of pork with dried cherries, mushrooms, roasted potatoes with carrots and broccoli, and cappuccino souffles. Louis Osteen offers a Wadmawlaw Sweets onion tart, pan-fried soft-shell crabs, fried green tomatoes, stewed rabbit smothered with onions, southern biscuits, and buttermilk tart with raspberries.
The authors give a little background information on each chef along with a photo, and tips are scattered throughout, including wine suggestions. This book is at least as much fun to read as to cook with.
5.0 out of 5 stars I love this cookbook! 16 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Home Food is a delightful way to get to know some of America's star chefs! In addition to delicious and easy to prepare recipes, the book has photos and in-depth chef interviews. It is fun to learn about the different paths which led them into the world of cuisine. Be forewarned, you will find yourself wanting some of these chef's cookbooks. Like today, I could not resist "Lidia's Italian Table" and Todd English's "Figs Table".

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow, delicious recipes; great chef bios. 22 Nov. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've tried most of the recipes in this book and not one has been bad! It's a beautifully laid out book with interesting stories from some of America's greatest chefs. The recipes encourage me to test my skills, while still being recognizable to execute.
