660 Curries

Spices - Never leave home without them

A review on: 660 Curries
eastshores

Pros: Beautifully descript, tons of recipes, snippets of cultural background

Cons: 660 recipes have to start to overlap at some point and they do

I most likely never would have come across this book, but my brother knowing that I enjoyed Indian food one Christmas decided to give me this as a gift. It was one of the best gifts I have ever been given. It changed my life in a way that has been ever present, not just in food but in culture. In the way I think about the world.   I had no idea the depth of which India and the cultures...

Fresh Happy Tasty by Coxwell, Jane. (William Morrow Cookbooks,2013) [Hardcover]

“According to the calendar, summer is just around the corner.  Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell that to the weather up here in Wisconsin.  It might be early May but it still feels like March here in the Dairy State, with its gray, leaden skies, biting winds, and rain that feels like it is on the verge of turning back into snow.  Into this cold and dreary weather a small...” --Pete

Garde Manger

“Chef Chuck Hughes is a Food Network star with at least 3 shows to his credit, my favorite being "Chuck's Eat the Street."  He is also one of a handful of chefs to defeat Bobby Flay on "Iron Chef: America."  But before that Chuck was a chef, in Montreal, and from his reputation, a pretty good one at that.   Back in 2010 Chuck authored a cookbook, "Garde Manger" in French...” --Pete

Monday Morning Cooking Club: The Food, the Stories, the Sisterhood

“I think it is safe to say we have all experienced executing a recipe exactly as written only to have it be a disaster. We are left hanging up our aprons in shame and shaking our heads, wondering what went wrong? As we come to our senses we mentally go over the steps we took, looking for errors. Having found none, we go to the ingredient list and scrutinize it, only to realize that the recipe...” --Cami

Betty Crocker The Big Book of Cookies (Betty Crocker Big Book)

“I have to admit that at first I was a little worried about a cookbook put out by Betty Crocker.  After all who is Betty Crocker anyway? My fear was that every recipe would require a box mix to be used.  I am not against boxed mixes; however, that is not what I usually reach for when baking at home.  Perhaps I feel it is a bit like cheating and find myself peeking over my...” --Cami

Polish Classic Recipes (Classics Series)

Polish Classic Recipes (Classics Series)

“The best recipes to prepare at home are not always those found on the latest cooking program or come from trying to replicate the goodness found at the hottest restaurant. Some recipes may even be relaxed preparations found on hand-scrawled notes, the back of an envelope or scratched on loose-leaf paper, in faded ink in the author’s familiarly casual script. And can’t the same be said for the...” --Jim Berman

The Complete Guide to Northern Gulf Seafood

The Complete Guide to Northern Gulf Seafood

“I've been on a bit of New Orleans Cajun and Creole kick with my cookbook reviews recently so I thought I'd stray a bit, although not too far and review a cookbook about seafood that can be found all along the Northern Gulf, from Texas to Florida (and yes that does encompass both Louisiana and New Orleans.   Tom Bailey has recently written a wonderful book called "The Complete Guide to...” --Pete

In a While, Crocodile: New Orleans Slow Cooker Recipes

“When I was just embarking on my culinary career I spent a good amount of time working in New Orleans.  To this day I still have a fondness for the Cajun and Creole foods I discovered while living and working there.  Fast forward 20 plus years and I am now a father and husband in a 2 income family.  As such, the slow cooker has become our friend, allowing us to put together a...” --Pete

“This was one of the most fun cookbooks I’ve read in a while.  Donna Hay has created a cookbook that will certainly bring a new perspective to your cooking.  She advocates the use of fresh, wholesome ingredients, without pushing a particular “diet.”  With photographs of every recipe, laid out in logically in meal based chapters, such as breakfast, lunch and salads, desserts, etc.,...” --Cami
