Food Network – Tyler Florence

Try this awesome CookBook from Food Network Chef, Tyler Florence!


I love Tyler Florence and really find he has a genuine comfortability in the kitchen.  This cookbook was a refreshing find as it shares both Tyler’s personal stories behind the dishes, some failings as well as what finally makes his selected dishes awesome.  The  format is easy to read and the 120 recipes he showcases are broad based enough to keep most cooks motivated.
The book is created nice and strong, lays flat upon opening regardless if on page two or fifty and has a nifty elastic strap which keeps the book open for hands-free consulting…Nothing worse than messing up a cookbook with messy handprints!
Among the recipes included are some ones I cannot wait to try…such as :
Parker House’s Rolls with Parsley-Garlic Butter…I am from Boston!
The Wayfare Tavern’s Fried Chicken, Shrimp and Grits Risotto
Paella Risotto
The book also shares some hand notes from Tyler which really make it as if a good friend opened up their cookbook and secrets.
I really enjoyed the book and was pleased to have been given a copy for review!  “I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.”

Tyler Florence does updated comfort food like no one else, but comfort food’s never been updated like this. Join him as he perfects, simplifies, and totally re-invents your favorite dishes in surprising, spectacular ways.

Have you ever wondered which cheese, exactly, will make the stretchiest, cheesiest mac and cheese? Or if you can make Hollandaise sauce without fear, a double boiler, or even a whisk? Or if, instead of having to choose between onion rings or French fries, you can make onion rings crusted with French fries? Tyler Florence has. These are the kinds of questions he obsesses over when he thinks about how to make cooking both easier and more exciting.

For years, while shuttling between his restaurants and TV shoots, Tyler’s kept a notebook of ideas to push his own recipes out of their comfort zone. Now, for the first time in his career, he’s established a culinary lab where he can dive deep into the hows, whys, and why-nots of his cooking. He brings you Inside the Test Kitchen to see his experiments, the wins and the fails, and of course, the delicious, foolproof, and surprising recipes that come out of it.

Go from tricks to make basics brilliant—like saucing Double-Creamed Spinach with pureed spinach, or using boiling-hot brine to make a Super-Crisp Roast Chicken— to simpler ways to make the classics, like a nearly no-stir Time Saver Risotto and a Three-Minute Hollandaise, to pure reinvention, like Fronion Rings and almost-instant Modern Burger Buns.

Through these 120 recipes, Tyler invites you to question culinary sacred cows, push your skills to the next level, and make food more delicious than they would have thought possible.
