I can't say enough about the coq au vin blanc. It was so yummy I was dreaming about it long after we'd finished the pot. The photos are gorgeous, and I love that Pam includes optional wine pairings, appetizers, and desserts for almost every dish - so if you're entertaining a crowd, you've got your menu planned already.
None of the ingredients are foreign or hard to get, and we (a family of 2) are easily getting 4 meals out of each dish. That makes for a super economical dinner, even if you're splashing out for really nice prosciutto or wine.
Next on my list to make: the pecan pie sundaes. This Texan approves of any meal that ends with pecans!
The recipes are in-between Rachel Ray and Martha Stewart in terms of difficulty (not content, though). Leans toward Rachel Ray in most recipes. If you can do Ray's recipes, you can do this. On the other hand, if you are just learning to cook, I highly recommend the Betty Crocker Cookbook, Bridal Edition (the sexist phrasing is not my fault). Those recipes are generally easier, somewhat more familiar, and she has a lot more instructions about things like what "browned" means, and so on. And there are plenty of ideas for Sunday dinners there, too. If you use that for a year or two, cooking a real dinner at least once a week (let's be realistic :) and go through most of the basics, you should be ready to move up to this.
These are dinner party recipes, so many of them take between 30 minutes and 2.5 hours *including cooking time*. This is not a "feed your family every night for the week" cookbook! We use this book for having guests and for Sunday dinners.
Assuming that in your family the kids "get what they get and don't throw a fit", the majority of these recipes will please most diners, and a few of them will definitely please almost everyone. You can always not add the jalapenos, right? You might have to buy one or two spices, namely, saffron and cumin, if you don't already have them. Overall however it is extremely accessible.
This is a GREAT book for the semi-experienced home cook who wants to cook food that guests will enjoy, without going to Martha-Stewart-level intricacy.
It's not a great book for a beginning cook who needs something really 100% surefire, or for someone looking for all the old Sunday dinner staples.
That said, you absolutely must make the paella. I believe every adult at the table uttered, "oh my god" at least once.
One of the best things about Anderson's book is that she provides lots of alternatives. Don't have time to make spinach dip? Set out a plate of smoked almonds. There are three versions of lasagna. I'm sure I will return to this cookbook whenever we have lots of guests.
Also of note is the wonderful customer service by the seller "grandma "
All of the recipes in this cookbook look simple and Pam includes ideas and recipes for easy appetizers, side dishes, desserts and if you are really short on time she has suggestions for quicker store bought alternatives .
It is entertaining made easy with out sacrificing taste. Who doesn't need that? I happen to love leftovers so these recipes will also be perfect for my family of four as we will get two meals from each recipe. Cooking ahead is such a time saver.
Pam plans out the menu, gives you suggestions for side dishes and dessert as well as easier alternatives and helpful hints for serving the dishes as a buffet or a more formal sit down meal.
I will be reviewing the recipes I try on my blog at [...]
