The thing I love about cookbooks like this is that they tend to demystify the cooking process for people who would otherwise be too timid or intimidated to try cooking anything more than basic pasta or boring soup.

The recipes in this cookbook run the gamut, but I didn't see anything in here that looks too hard to tackle or too time consuming to want to start. I like the Nigella Lawson-type of approach to cookbook writing - adding a healthy amount of narrative to give background on a recipe or explain why it's a hit - and there's plenty of that here.

Also nice to have a section on drinks, which many people forget or are, again, too daunted to try when hosting a dinner party.

David has a nice easy style to his writing and the recipes are all winners. Well worth it!

There are old favorites with a new twist and some really wild new ideas. This is a great cook book for both the new cook and the accomplished entertainer, with main dishes and lots of appetisers and unique side dishes. For you campers out there, try the "some'or" cocktail. All of the nuances you remember from the famous campfire dessert that was everybody's favorite with a healthy dose of adult flavor enhancers, all in a glass! This is a keeper book for every kitchen.

Every recipe I have tried has come out perfectly and I have had rave reviews. A great find for the person who has limited time for cooking but still enjoys great food.

I had the opportunity of engaging in a few e-mails with Chef David Lawrence prior to ordering his book Boy Eats World for my son -in-law.

At that time.. he was so helpful,nice and courteous..when I found out a cookbook was being released by him..I jumped on the chance of ordering it.

I had the time to peruse it..write down some recipes:) And enjoy his personal notes..

Definitely worth adding to your cookbook collection.

I am anxious to try the figs....the adorable baked alaska lemons..I had already made the Filets Mignons..and The pistachio crusted salmon and both were delicious.

A keeper book:)

And Kudos to Amazon for getting the book to me in due time.

I have NO cooking skills! This kept me out of the kitchen. If I picked up a "traditional" cook book, I would be so discouraged that I wouldn't even attempt what I wanted to try. Not so with this book. I not only read it cover to cover, I have even made several of the dishes. (page 155 in Davids "favorite" section is my favorite salad EVER) The section on "A Few Helpful Kitchen Tips" helped me understand so much and I can't wait to try ALL of the drinks in the "Mixology" section! Great book for those of us who want to cook, and are afraid to try!! My copy is already dog eared.
