About the Author

THE FOOD NETWORK is a television network devoted exclusively to food and entertaining 24 hours a day. Today it reaches more than 90 million households in the United States and can be seen internationally in Canada, Australia, Korea, Thailand, Singapore, the Philippines, Monaco, Andorra, Africa, France, and the French-speaking territories in the Caribbean and Polynesia. Its informative and entertaining lifestyle programming--more than 95% is originally produced--includes world renowned chefs, restaurateurs, passionate gourmets, working mothers and celebrities and covers everything from gourmet meals and healthy diet to quick weeknight meals and wine. Food Network has been responsible for creating stars like Emeril Lagasse, Rachael Ray and Paula Deen, giving national exposure to chefs like Bobby Flay and Mario Batali, and bringing viewers the hugely popular Iron Chef America, based on the format of the Japanese cult sensation. Foodnetwork.com averages more than 7 million hits monthly, and the bi-monthly Food Network Magazine debuted with the November/December 2008 issue. More than 1 million copies of Food Network–branded books have been sold since 2004, and many of 2006's best-selling cookbooks were authored by Food Network chefs, including Rachael Ray, Paula Deen, Emeril Lagasse, Alton Brown, and others.

I love to cook. I am an excellent cook. I am also a huge fan of the Food Network. I am not in the least bit however, a fan of this cookbook. The one and only redeeming part of this cookbook is the interesting short little interviews at the beginning of each different chef's section. Apart from that, the recipes were not worth the paper they were printed on. Why? Well, unless you are a dedicated seafood nut, then the majority of these recipes will not be to your taste. No less than 80 percent of the recipes in this collection are fish based. Finally, although I am impressed with what all these talented folks can do, I do not personally need recipes that I cannot ever fathom using. How about some down home normal recipes with a wee bit of flair? Being a foody, I am desperately disappointed in this cookbook and glad that I bought it on ebay cheaply. I will certainly be re-selling it today!

Food Network Favorites is a collection of 10 recipes each from 11 Food Network stars and 10 recipes from the Food Network Kitchens. The 10 featured chefs are Alton Brown, Bobby Flay, Dave Lieberan, Emeril Lagasse, Giada DeLaurentiis, Mario Batali, Michael Chiarello, Paula Deen, Rachel Ray, Tyler Florence, and Wolfgang Puck. At the beginning of each chef's section, there is a one page Q&A consisting of personal questions such as "What's in your fridge?", "How has fame changed your life?" and "What three ingredients can't you live without?". Each chef generally answers 5 questions.

I think the chefs that have recipes in this book were, for the most part, well selected. As I flipped through I thought that some of the actual recipes from the chefs were a strange choice to be put in here but, the 121 recipes featured are overall a nice varied collection.

Beuatiful color photos are scattered throughout the book - on average, a picture of a recipe can be found every 3 or 4 pages. Throughout the book there are also various quotes from that particular sections' star chef on anything from the dish on that page to where a chef gets his or her inspiration for new recipes.

On almost every recipe page, you can find a "Note From The Kitchens" - a little 'fun fact' about the dish or an ingredient in it. There are also a bunch of "Kitchen Tip"s near recipes that are helpful when cooking. Some are obvious, but others can really come in handy.

I was pleasently surprised that Dave Leibermen was included in the selection of chefs. I haven't tried any of his recipes from this book yet, but I will. I've seen a few of his shows when they're on, and I really like his recipes from there so far.

Or I should say I used to. I bought this one without really looking inside because I had had such good experiences in the past with FN books. I haven't made one recipe out of this book. I was also dismayed to find repeat recipes found in the other cookbooks by the same chefs (I already owned)! It was like a compilation of a few recipes from already published cookbooks.

If you want a good FN cookbook...buy the one that the people behind the scenes put together...it's called Food Network Kitchens Cookbook. It's much better than the celebrity chef compilation.

Recipes didn't seem like their favorites or best; more like one that didn't make it on TV.

While it is interesting to have the chefs gathered together, I found the Food Network Kitchens recipes to be better written and better tasting (so far). I would suggest buying one of the Food Network Kitchen books and a cookbook from whichever of these chefs you like.

Format: Paperback
"Food Network Favorites: Recipes From Our All-Star Chefs" is an interesting cookbook with numerous standout recipes and great brief interviews with the chefs explaining their viewpoints on a variety of things. Those are the pros of the book: the cons are that along with some great recipes there are quite a few that are not especially impressive and are certainly not up to the standards I would expect from a hand-picked collection of dishes from chefs of this caliber. Another minor quibble is that not all the recipes have illustrations, so being able to envision the final product is an important skill to have if you are actually going to attempt some of these dishes.

Most of the chefs had at least one good signature dish on display, although nothing from Michael Chiarello was remotely tempting for me and the only thing from Wolfgang Puck that I was interested in was a pizza (imagine that.) On the other end of the spectrum, Alton Brown and Bobby Flay turned in typically excellent performances with well-selected and appetizing recipes (try especially Alton's "Pressure Cooker Chili" and Bobby's "Spice-Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Ancho Chile-Mustard Sauce.") Mario Batali and Tyler Florence are also well represented here.

This is not the best collection of celebrity recipes I have ever seen, and were it marketed exclusively as such I would probably give the book three stars; I really enjoyed the wide ranging comments from the chefs about their craft, which combined with some good tips and techniques made this a four star book.
