Editorial Reviews

Review

A unique cookbook that will not only save you time when preparing meals at home, but bring fresh new ideas and excitement to cooking! (Parenting Tips 365 2010-12-01)

Making short work of good cooking is possible if you put this indispensable appliance to use, these veteran authors maintain, and their book begins by explaining how to handle each food in a 25-page guide, then describes each part of the machine, and includes tips and ideas for each recipe, including a "vegetarian friendly" indication. If you don't own a processor, or tend to let yours gather dust, or are thinking of investing in one, this lively, international collection will improve your culinary life. Include a plastic spatula for scraping the processor bowl with this book. (Julian Armstrong Montreal Gazette 2010-11-30)

650 Best Food Processor Recipes is a cookbook that will have you falling in love with that appliance all over again. (Karen Ciancio CookingNook.com 2011-01-00)

I'm a food processor foodie so when this book came in for review I grabbed it immediately. And, I'm happy to report I wasn't disappointed. The second recipe I tested was Orange Butter Cookies. Using the food processor made a simple recipe even more simple. The richness of the butter and the strong accent of orange pleased the palate. I will be making these again. Do I recommend 650 Best Food Processor Recipes? Yes, I sure do. With that many recipes you could have your processor going daily for two years. Perusing the remainder of the recipes I found that there are many I will be making in the very near future. The ingredients would be found in most pantries and certainly in local grocery stores. This is a winner. (Irene Watson Reader Views 2010-11-10)

I never realized the food processor could be used to create everything from appetizers to soups to desserts. These recipes have been developed with time saving strategies for today's busy cook. Many of the recipes have also been designed so that the bowl does not need to be cleaned along the way. (Who doesn't love have less dishes to clean? I know I am happy with anything that makes my job of cleaning easier.) (Thrifty Things Blogspot 2011-01-23)

Does your food processor sit on the kitchen counter collecting dust? Or like many cooks, do you use the appliance only to slice and dice? George Geary, a cooking instructor, teams with food writer Judith Finlayson with this impressive array. Both authors assert that the food processor is the most underused appliance in the kitchen. With that in mind, the two whipped up a delicious offering of recipes that make use of the food processor in 650 Best Food Processor Recipes. This giant tome not only offers a tasty menu of recipes, it also breaks down the components of the food processor and explains how to use it effectively. Busy cooks learn how to save time by reducing prep time. One of the best sections is the comprehensive list of ingredients with directions for processing each of these foods. Color photos highlight several of the delightful gourmet recipes, ranging from appetizers to soups, entrees to desserts, condiments to cookies. The dessert section tempts my taste buds, especially the lemon oatmeal bars. Initially, I chuckled at the section explaining the parts of the processor. I consider myself a well-rounded home cook, but after reading how to use the appliance properly, I realized I haven't used my food processor to its full potential. (LuAnn Schindler Sacramento Book Review 2011-01-05)

If there is one kitchen appliance that I do not use often enough it is my food processor. I guess it is easier for me to chop, and dice with my knives instead. I mostly use my food processor for mincing or to make puree. Boy have I been missing out on a great way to prepare foods. Here is a fabulous cookbook for more inspiration. 650 Best Food Processor Recipes by George Geary and Judith Finlayson. George and Judith want you to bring those food processors out of your appliance graveyard. In 650 Best Food Processor Recipes they will show you how easy it is to put that processor to work. You can make sensational delicious and foolproof dishes. In Appetizers there is a scrumptious Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread which I plan to make for my Thanksgiving get together. How about Roasted Garlic and Mushroom pate? I am drooling over Santa Fe Sweet Potato Soup made with dried New Mexico chiles, sweet potatoes and corn plus a few more choice ingredients. Yum! My guys love beef so Beef Fajitas with Guacamole or the Southwestern Brisket would satisfy them. There is even a recipe for Homemade Ketchup. With so many hundreds of recipes, I have asked for a new Food Processor as a gift. Mine is so old and I can't find some of the blades, bummer! (One 2 Try 2010-11-15)

If you have been letting your [food] processor gather dust, this rundown on how to use one is handy. (Julian Armstrong Calgary Herald 2010-09-19)

This fine book shows the wide variety of recipes made in minutes with this indispensable appliance. (Julian Armstrong Montreal Gazette 2010-09-22)

The Comeback of the food processor. Cupboards are filled with abandoned small appliances that have left their owners perplexed as to how they can be incorporated into everyday use. One of those appliances is the food processor. But, two new books are hoping to change that... 650 Best Food Processor Recipes by George Geary and Judith Finlayson (Robert Rose) includes recipes from appetizers to desserts. (Emily Richards Metro News 2011-04-08)

If you've fallen into the rut of using your food processor only to chop veggies, you'll enjoy the myriad adventures found in a new book, 650 Best Food Processor Recipes, by George Geary and Judith Finlayson (Robert Rose, $24.95). Your dinnertime repertoire will develop dramatically while saving you time to spend with your family. This simple dessert is perfect for spring, and it's vegetarian-friendly. (June Naylor Star-Telegram Newspaper 2011-03-02)

This cookbook features innovative recipes specifically created for use with food processors. Many of the recipes have also been designed so that the bowl does not need to be cleaned along the way -- another time-saver that will be appreciated by home cooks pressed for time. It also includes information on the food processor -- everything from purchasing, safe usage and understanding basic parts, extensive tips and techniques to a handy A to Z list of ingredients and how to effectively process each. Foolproof recipes are given for dressings, condiments, breads, desserts, appetizers, sides, salads, main dishes, pasta and more like Lemon-Laced Butterbean Dip, Beef Fajitas with Guacamole, Three-Herb Pasta Salad, Potato Latkes, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Lemon Mist Cheesecake. (Gay Francisco Paris Post-Intelligencer 2011-03-23)

My husband and I were given a very fancy food processor for our wedding several years ago. I used it once or twice and then tucked it away in the storage room as it didn't seem to be worth all the trouble to just make coleslaw and juice.

Was I ever wrong! A friend recommended I buy a copy of 650 Best Food Processor Recipes and give my processor another shot. I haven't put either the book or my processor away since. And, I'm now honestly wondering how I ever lived without it!

The recipes in this book have inspired me to make everything from party appetizers, to main courses for my family, to desserts for the school bake-sale. I can't believe I didn't think of using it for all these things before! If you're like me and have a busy work day, followed by a busy night of running around with the family, you will truly appreciate this time-saving tips in this book.

I've learned to use my food processor in a much more time efficient manner after reading (yes, it's all in the book!) about safe usage, understanding basic parts, and how to process a huge list of ingredients properly. This book - which is now my go-to reference book - lists tips and proper techniques on food processor usage (ideal for individuals like me who are a little technologically challenged).

I highly recommend this title - and I also highly recommend you give your own unused food processor another chance - I guarantee you'll be pleasantly surprised if you follow the advice and recipes in this book! Who knew cooking could be so easy?

This book is terrific. I've owned my processor for 5 day's and I have used it each day to it's full potential I believe due to this book. Great recipes, no bizarre ingredient hunting and I don't have a hard time getting good vegetables into my family's diet-- even my husband hates them but makes an exception of the meals cooked from this book. It's packed with versatility and nutrition while tasting good too. I'm an intermediate cook at best and find these a breeze. Thanks!

This is a really good cookbook. I have made several recipes from it already and loved everyone of them. I am thoroughly enjoying my new food processor and I am amazed at how beautifully flavors combine when processing the vegetables and herbs in the processor. I make at least one or more recipes every week, so I can enjoy my food processor and try new recipes. It is well worth the very reasonable price. Most of the ingredients are commonly found in kitchens and grocery stores.

This cookbook has great and varied recipes. With arthritis it has been difficult to stir, chop, and cut. Now I have recipes which require a limited amount of stirring, chopping, or slicing. I just let my food processor do most of the work.

I purchased a fancy food processor and wanted to make sure that I used it alot. I did not want a dust collector. So, I purchased this book so that I could learn how to use it to it's best advantage. I am amazed at how much this book has helped me and how good the recipes are.

As with all cookbooks the results are a combination of cooking skill and the ideas that come from the book. This book presents a huge selection of cooking ideas that would be difficult and very time-consuming without a food processor. I enjoy the variety of the recipes and the challenge of rethinking manual cutting and slicing with the ease of food processor cooking.

I sent the book back. The recipes seemed to be too gourmand for my simple life style. Too many ingredients that don't live in my cupboards. For someone who enjoys producing gourmet dishes with an international flavor, this might be the book for you.

Being able to preview books on Amazon (particularly recipe books) before buying them is certainly a plus. Wish I could have done it in this case.
