Christine HA, the winner of MasterChef, Season 3 on Fox delivers much more than a cookbook. What a delightful surprise to receive yesterday morning, and I enjoyed very much to read this page-turner in preparation for my selections. Chaper 1 are the SNACKS AND STARTERS; Chapter 2 is A BOWL OF COMFORT; Chapter 3 is FROM MY MAMA's KITCHEN; Chapter 4 is WESTERN CLASSICS; Chapter 5 is FOOD FOR CASUAL GATHERINGS; Chapter 6 is ON THE SIDE; Chapter 7 is SOMETHING SWEET; and Chapter 8 is A STOCK, SAUCES, VINAIGRETTES,AND SEASONINGS. Christine HA uses her heightened senses of taste, touch, smell, and sound and is the first-time evercontestant in a cooking competition. After tragically losing her sight in her twenties, she became the extraordinary winner of MasterChef. In this collection, she includes delicious recipes for both Asian and American dishes.One of my selections will be the BUTTERMILK FRIED CHICKEN, but there are several I'm anxious to try. The HUMBLE APPLE PIE is my daughter's next selection, and I can't wait to try the PORK BELLY SLIDERS, and the GINGER-COCONUT TUILES. With this mouth-watering recipe, she also includes a simple syrup recipe for this dessert. Included in this exciting cookbook are colorful photos, not for every recipe, but there are several stunning photos of prepared, cooked recipes. In addition, the author includes inspiring stories about her upbringing, and sharing her mother's recipes. My daughter has already selected the CANDIED BACON, a recipe we never tasted, and easy-to-prepare. Some of her recipes include:PENNE WITH VODKA SAUCE; SPAGHETTI AND MEATBALLS; PERFECT SPAGHETTI SAUCE; BAKED ZITI; CHICKEN POT PIE; PULLED PORK SANDWICHES; MEAT LOAF; MUSHROOM AND ONION BURGERS; and more. Some of the SIDE DISHES include: PROSCIUTTO-WRAPPED ASPARAGUS SPEARS; ROASTED BEET SALAD; COWBOY CORN ON THE COB; and more. For Tonight, I will try the BROCCOLI-RICE CASSEROLE, and will leave Updates with all recipes we make. A Note of interest: There are colorful photos of prepared, cooked recipes almost on every other page. Also, some pages contain more than 1 stunning photo, not including the special pics of Christine. All photos in this book are inviting and inspiring! I can't wait to make the BROWNED BUTTER ICE CREAM, and the PEACH SWEET TEA. My daughter has also selected the COCONUT-LIME SORBET. The desserts look incredible, and the photos of the desserts make your mouth water. Christine HA also defines the names of certain dishes, and explains in detail helpful tips per recipe. Thank you Christine for this inspiring Masterpiece of a cookbook! A great addition to my cookbook collection. Highly recommended!
