I'm all for trying new foods and flavor combinations. I have no problem mixing fruit with meat with cheese, and other combinations that a more reserved cook might not be into. But there are just way too many wacky combinations for me. Nothing looked appealing. Everything in the book is either way too boring or way too obscure.
I guess what I am trying to say is this:
1.) The recipes in this book do not go from grocery bag to table faster than those in the other series.
2.) The other books are way better.
Therefore, you should buy the other books!
There are fix it faster tips that are common sense and experienced cooks will already know what this book claims are clever shortcuts; such as buy already peeled and deveined shrimp to save you the time doing this chore. Quick flips explain you can change some of the recipes, for example adding picante sauce to make TexMex. There are ingredient spotlights and a seasonal produce guide, pictures and explanations of time saving tools and gadgets, a nutritional analysis, and a metric equivalent chart.
These are not recipes that are really out of the ordinary, but they do create good meals, simple enough for beginning cooks. There are many parings; main dish and a side. Some of this family favorites have been; horseradish dill salmon, Grecian steaks and braised chicken with saffron and olives, paired with sugared almond basmati rice.
This book would add to a cookbook collection that needs some good quick nice meals.
