Product Description

Review

Anthony Demetre s cooking has obvious pedigree, the style intelligently simple, highly skilled, imaginative and innovative, with a shopping list of more humble ingredients also helping elevate it above the crowd. Flavours are clear and confident, combinations well judged... --AA.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Recipes turn out just like the illustrations! Wonderfully thought out, easy too follow and using everday ingredients. This is one of those cookery books you dont put away on the shelf.
The recipes dont have an excessive amount of ingredients, so they're not too expensive to make.
Really enjoyed this inexpensive book.

I have been lucky enough to eat at Anthony Demetre's restaurant, Arubutus (although not Wild Honey yet!) and this books really is as good as that. He is a fantastic chef, not pretentious or over priced and this book really shows you how to cook superb dishes, while not going overboard, or taking ages AND helps you save money by telling you cheaper cuts of meat to use and using seasonal produce. I am a huge fan and this stunning book really is fantastic.

It's great to see a chef of our time! Choosing non-trendy but seasonal ingredients means its easy to keep the costs down, and when we're all watching what we spend why not have a dinner party where there's just one (sensational) dish. Buy this book, you'll save money cooking - and impress guests at the same time.

Anthony Demetre’s “Today’s Special: A New Take on Bistro Food” shows home cooks how to be creative with cheaper cuts of meat, lesser-known fish and seasonal produce. With chapters on soups, fish, poultry and game, beef and veal, lamb, pork and a small number of desserts, the recipes are clearly explained and easy to follow and Mr Demetre gives some helpful tips at the start of each recipe. The quality of pictures accompanying the recipes means that you can almost taste the food! Dishes such as the fricassee of chicken with spring onion risotto and the navarin of lamb with spring vegetables have become new favourites in my home.
A very well presented book with affordable, achievable and delicious recipes makes this a 5* buy in my opinion.

Amazon are advertising this with another Anthony Demetre book; they are in fact the same recipes (one is the paperback version of the other). Book is great but you don't need both!!!!

I bought this book after having dinner in arbutus one evening. The book is good but the dishes are dulled down versions of what is served in the restaurant for instance the warm chocolate soup is usually served with an ice cream the time I had it it was cardamon ice cream, it was delicious. The book cops out by serving it with dollop of creme fraiche. If your a chef it might not be for you. but if your looking to cook from the book at home it will do the trick nicely. The food is good in there. And having sampled Anthonys food I can tell you its bloody delicious
