Every recipe I have tried has worked beautifully. Despite the appearances that this is just a novelty book, the ideas and combinations really create tasty foods. The dishes are fun and creative. Delicious!

Something that just arrived in the mail is "Cafe' Nervosa: The Connoisseur's Cookbook," an eclectic collection of recipes ostensibly from Frasier, Daphne, and the entire crew. I love to cook and I'm always on the outlook for new recipes and this is a fine collection of some really interesting ones. The picture I've uploaded is one of my favorites, Mocha Nervosa Walnut Bread.

The book is divided into four sections, Man Can Live by Bread Alone (breads and desserts); Let's do Lunch (small, relatively simply meals); Just Bring Two Forks (ornate, you-better-think-about-it meals); and Some Like it Hot (coffees and drinks). Sprinkled throughout the book are quotes and bits from the show. The book also has an index for quick lookup. At 108 pages, it's not a huge book, but well written and just quirky enough to keep your interest. And the recipes are easy enough that almost anyone (that is, me) can do them without getting lost or having to travel to Trader Joe's for some obscure ingredient.

You cannot go wrong with any cookbook that is published by Oxmoor House; and their cookbooks by Southern Living magazine & are EXCELLENT! I know because we have been using their books for over 21 years for ALL sorts of events, both formal and informal. I was delighted to see that they teamed up with Dr. Frasier Crane, and his brother Dr. Niles Crane to give us these GREAT receipes from the Cafe Nervosa. From the opening pages it will become VERY clear that this NOT a book to be taken lightly! The first color photograph that you see is for Prosciutto-and-Fontina Panini which is delicious! There are recipies for a number of muffins, biscuits and scones. There is a Cappuccino Biscotti that is very easy to make, a Mocha Nervosa Walnut Bread, Buttermilk Pancakes, and a Silken Sour Cream Coffee Cake. You will also find a great section that has recipes for lunch. There are several GOOD dessert Recipes, and yes, COFFEE!! All of this in just 105 pages, containing 12 full page color photographs of several finished recipes. You will also get MANY quotes from Frasier, Niles, Daphnae, Martin and Roz, which are witty and funny!
If you are as big a fan of "Frasier" as I am, and LOVE GOOD food, then this very CLEVER cookbook is bound to please!!

If you are a fan of Frasier, the book alone is worth it! If you enjoy good food that anyone can make, this book is for you. I wouldn't miss the chance to own it.

If you're a Frasier fan, you pretty much need this cookbook like Frasier needed a haircut seasons 1 & 2. The recipes are legit and the ones I've tried so far are pretty tasty. It even has quotes from show throughout so you can reminisce about your favorite episodes while making a delicious dish for you and your friends to enjoy! It even has a whole section on coffee drinks so you can pretend you're relaxing in Cafe Nervosa. I'm pleased with this product just like Frasier was pleased with his monogrammed handtowels that Julia insulted in season 11. (Let's face it, those towels were probably sweet and she was jealous.) Even though there's no recipe for tossed salad and scrambled eggs, this would make the perfect gift for any Frasier fan out there. Good day and good mental health!

I love Frasier, and I couldn't find this book anywhere else. It came in quickly and was in great condition. I love the banter between Frasier and Niles at the beginning of the book, and the incorporation of quotes from the show itself [they make me laugh out loud!]. The recipes look delicious, and I am super eager to make some awesome food and drink.
