FYI. How long can I resist this one?
No fair, he is one of my favorites when on the FN. I so wanted him to win the Next Iron Chef when he competed in the final against Michael Simon. I like his personality so much more and his cooking style.
Symon is annoying!! I'm ducking from the Clevelanders. He has been on a lot of other shows more than Iron Chef.
Yes I agree, I don't even like him on the Best Thing I Ever Ate....and I am glad they too him off Dinner IMpossible.
I thought Besh should have won too. I don't find Symon annoying, but I think Besh has greater range and is the better chef.
I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more cookbooks sight unseen, although a couple of charities that I'm involved with won't be happy if I stop donating my rejects to the annual fundraisers. I'll look through Besh's book next time I'm at the bookstore.
I will too and let me know what you think.
Have you seen his book yet....the reviews sound good.
Saw it at Costco the other day. Was tempted, but I already have about a gazillion cookbooks. Well, I did buy the one on grits, so I can be tempted.
They have one of his oyster dishes in the new FN magazine and one of Jamie Oliver's too from his new one. I will definitely try Jamies.....
No, I looked for it the last time I was at Borders, but they didn't have it yet. There was an article about him and the cookbook that I read recently. Apparently, it's a big volume.
I will look at Costco and Barnes & Noble tomorrow.
I will probably be at Costco over the weekend and will look for it there. If they don;t have it, I'm sure Borders will have it by now. I'll be near a Borders on Monday.
I ordered Ad Hoc At Home from Jessica's today. I haven't seen it, but it sounds like it is a more useful book than Keller's other two. I also ordered From Tapas To Meze, which was discussed here not long ago. I like Joanne Weir's books.
I am tempted to get My Bread....from the No Knead Bread man. I will look too.
Other than the no-knead bread I made when it first hit the foodie world, I haven't made bread in years; too many good artisan bakeries nearby to fuss with it. As a result, I'm not tempted by bread books. Thank goodness for small favors. ;^)
Her, In the City is very good.
Yes, I like that one, but I use her Recipes From The Wine Country and More Recipes from the Wine Country more often. I also have You Say Tomato, which I believe I got as a free book from Jessica's. It's a smallish book, but there are lots of good recipes in it.
I sat down and looked at it page for page the other day at the book store. I didn't buy it because it is so much like a hundred other New Orleans cookbooks around.
With slight differences.....It does have some great photographs. Go to NOLA.com, and click on the food section. They reviewed the book and posted a few of the recipes....
I'll do that. Thank you!
I absolutely love My Bread....John Besh's book has far too many ingredients I could not find, but the book is truly a coffee table book...just beautiful...not sure I will keep it though since I bought it at Borders.
