BLOOMSBURY USA/WALKER, 2008
Anthony...... need I say more?!?!?
I could listen to Anthony read a 1st grade primer!!! This book is hilarious, if you are a fan of Mr. Bourdain's wicked and offbeat sense of humour.
Best cook book I ever read
I read a lot of cook books - Fat Duck, French Laundry, Under Pressure, Alinear, Daniels, etc, etc. This is the only one that kept my attention from the first page to the last and still yearning for more. It is interesting and I found all the recipes are simple enough that I am sure I have no problem using them and in many cases I can put my own spin to it. I am not a chef but a weekend warrior. I ...
The Sweet Life in Paris: Delicious Adventures in the World's Most Glorious - and Perplexing - City
Great travel lit for the Paris sojourn
Lebovitz is deeply engaging and it's a brilliant read for that sojourn in Paris. I highly recommend it for travel reading... then proceeding to check out the restaurants and cafes mentioned in the book!"
The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
Del Rey, 2008
A brilliant zany sequel with plenty of laughs
While the quality slips a bit from the first book to the second, this is still a delightful read that made me laugh many times. There isn't much of a story - the main characters go out to eat and travel through time and cruise around the galaxy and meet the dude who runs the Universe. A movie version would be terrible, as the story zooms around at a breakneck pace to nowhere and just stops on ...

The South Beach Diet Dining Guide: Your Reference Guide to Restaurants Across America

Wish I'd Had This Earlier!
This guide is better than Weight Watcher's although for a different purpose and diet. Wish I'd had it when it first came out.
Eat This Not That! Restaurant Survival Guide: The No-Diet Weight Loss Solution
This opened my eyes to restaurants and their menus. It's helped me alot when I order. I can keep away from the things high in calories or sodium.
Ad Hoc at Home
Great Cookbook! Yummy Food!
I recently purchased this cookbook because it was one of the best for 2009. Wow! It really is. I have made several of the recipes (fried chicken, short ribs, spaghetti and meatballs) and they were all delicious. The one thing that stood out for me was his chicken brine recipe which is now used every time I make chicken breasts. It truly makes a difference in the taste and flavor of the ...
Italy for the Gourmet Traveler
Hard to leave this huge book at home...
OK, so maybe you don't want to lug this book all over Italy. But, despite its size, I'm actually considering it. Why? The book begins with quite a few pages on Italy and its food and culinary traditions in general. Then it's broken down by region and further by cities that the well-traveled author selects as exemplary of each region. Each region gets a few pages of general info--whatever ...
Keeping the Moon
My first and not my last!
This is my first Sarah Dessen book I have read, and it definatley won't be the last! I am 12 years old, but wouldn't recommend it to anyone younger than me. You have to be an older reader to fully grasp the real messege. There are things in there like "bad words" and other stuff that is "not suitable for younger readers" (if you get what I mean). All of the so called "bad parts" did relate to the ...
The French Laundry Cookbook
Thomas Keller, enough said!!
TK just takes things to another level, but do not let the book intimidate you!! this is a GREAT price, so get it before it goes up!!
Mixt Salads: A Chef's Bold Creations
Ten Speed Press
Be green, buy eating greens!
So we're all trying to eat healthier right? I've been doing my part, trying to eat more veggies, more salads etc., but it's so easy to fall in to a slump, get stuck in a rut of 'Chicken Caesar' or 'The Iceberg Wedge'. This book breaks you out of the ruts, throws in the concept of fresh, seasonal ingredients and will keep you going with a ton of fresh ideas you can either take right out of the ...

Setting the Table
HarperCollins e-books, 2007
I wanna work for Danny Meyer!
This book made me want to quit my job and go wait tables for Danny Meyer. He makes it seem like such a calling--a noble endeavor, an important and honorable profession. This is also the book I quote from the most--I retell his stories to all sorts of people, because I see important lessons in them that apply in so very many places. Parenting, managing staff, publishing, home renovation, ...

When it comes to teenage behaviors, adult conditions of misery and marvel, tangled with history, Jodi Picoult is absolutely the best of the best. Young girls meddling with Witchcraft reflect the witch hunt the adults of Salem Falls are on to rid it of a convicted child abuser. Of course, nothing is as straight forward as it seems in a Jodi Picoult novel. One thing you can count on is a ...
