Disappointed. I love the show, the authors and their cooking and ambiance and was so looking forward to this.Biggest problem: This book has tons of photos but vast majority are of the authors on set. Very few photos of the food which for me is a big no-no, espeically when the authors are presenting items made with unusual ingredients. So hard to know what to try cause I don't have any visual clues. Do I need to go online and search photos for the recipes?I cannot believe that ABC couldn't provide food photos for publication.Oh well.....
For those who love The Chew, this is the sixth cookbook from that show filled with recipes that have aired on it. For those who do not know the show, its co-hosts feature three outstanding chefs: Michael Symon, Carla Hall and Mario Batali. Daphne Oz brings to the book her healthy recipes, and Clinton Kelly, an expert on entertaining, also contribute to how to do entertaining right and easy. Along with recipes from the show's five co-hosts, the book contains answers to viewer questions, tips from the authors, and photos from the show.On the recipes, some of my faves are the Slow-cooker mac-and-cheese, grilled cheese and tomato casserole, hashbrown frittata, and fig upside-down cake. Batali hits some of the basic Italian staples including pesto, tomato sauce, and a recipe for baked lasagna with eggplant.The book covers all sorts of occasions from quick dinners, slow-cooker meals, elaborate and impressive dishes, and a little of everything else, including family recipes and old favorites. In many ways, its breadth is both a strength and a weakness: it gives a little of everything, but does not cover anything particularly in huge depth.In all, this is certainly a book that will cater to fans of the show, and for others, may be an interesting overview of cooking and entertaining.
I LOVE this book!!! The Rhubarb Berry Slab Pie recipe on page 96 is to die for and I got my copy of the book just in time because my rhubarb plant will be ready to harvest in a few short weeks! I don't get to watch the show live because I'm always out in the garden or online doing garden networking but I've watched the replays of some of the shows online. The energy you find from this fabulous cast of celebrity chefs in the show is TOTALLY conveyed in this new publication. ALSO - there isn't a recipe in the book I wouldn't prepare for my family and friends! In the image is our rhubarb and the recipe from the book!
This is not only a cookbook, it's a fun collection of photos, viewer Q&A and personal vignettes about the awesome folks at the Chew. The show is so fun and informative, and this book is a perfect compliment to that. One fun recipe in this book is actually NOT edible, but sidewalk chalk. LOVE it. I have tried the slow cooker Mac and Cheese by Carla and it ROCKS! This is a great gift, too. Giving it to my friend getting married next month.
I need fast recipes and most of these in the book have too many ingredients. Pictures are great and the entertaining ideas are fun.
Love the book, love the show. Creative and insightful cooking tips, and recipes that I will use over and over and share with friends and family!!
Excellent cookbook. My wife loves it not only for the recipes but for the scientific approach to cooking
Not what I expected. Thought it would be more recipes and it's more of a photo album.
