Masterchef Ultimate Cookbook is a very good cookbook with minimal overlap with Masterchef Cookbook. It is a must buy for fans of the series for sure.The approach is to explain the goal of each dish that the contestant made so the teaching approach is more indirect. There are not specific "Techniques" pages or recipes from the judges.There is also some content spent on what some of the past contestants are up to.In comparison, Masterchef Cookbook has sections on:Kitchen toolsKitchen PantryTechniques include for chopping onion, poaching an egg, cubing a mango, peeling a mango, segmenting citrus, boiling and poaching an egg, cracking a crab, seeding tomato, toasting spices, cleaning leeks, homemade pasta, perfect pie crust, cooking rice, roasting and cutting a turkey, and making chicken, beef and vegetable broths.There are also recipes from the Masterchef kitchen and not just from the contestants., of course, is excellent. I preordered the book weeks before and got it exactly on Sept 18 as promised.
I have only had this cook book for a day and I am already in love with it! It is written very similar to the way I write my food blog, with more of a "this is what you are trying to accomplish" approach. I love the little technique sections such has how to "fix a broken holandaise sauce". This is definitely a great cook book for those aspiring to "do it like the pros". I hope to have a few of these dishes up on my food blog, justalittleginger.com very soon. Now I just can't wait for Christine's book! If you are like me and very excited for Christine Ha's book, not slated to be released until the spring :( , then look up her blog theblindcook.com and show her some love!
I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend, it arrived early, fantastic quality, good price, cheaper than buying at a book store. Has some great recipes in it that we've tried and loved, they aren't to complex either. It was definitely a good choice and I'll be buying products from this seller again.
As a fan it was entertaining, but some of the recipes are so complicated that it makes me think that these were not made by amateur cooks. The ingredients are not so easy for a normal person to get. And some require so many ingredients and most amateurs don't have the time or energy or resources.
I really enjoyed getting this cookbook. I'm a huge fan of the show and I was excited to see what was in it. I was expecting more practical and easy to do recipes considering all the contestants are "home" cooks. But that a side I did enjoy more than a few of the recipes so far! It has pushed me in the direction of being a more technical cook!
I am a huge fan of the show and so I was very excited to find out they have a cookbook of some of the contestants own recipes. In no time I hope this cook book will help make me feel like a master chef too.
I bought this for our family gift exchange for the coming Christmas. This looks so nice I am wanting to keep it! So, Imight be ordering another one. If you're a fan of the show, this looks really neat.
finally made AJs Dirty Lobster recipe from the cookbook. It was a very involved recipe which had a lot of steps. The first time I tried it I overcooked the lobster when roasting it and charred the shallots. The second time I did it it turned out so unbelievable it made the entire cost of the cookbook WORTH EVERY CENT!! hands down the best lobster dish I have ever had in my entire life! will be cooking more recipes from the cookbook now instead of thinking about it.
