“There’s so much about J.M.’s approach to food that rings true for me. We believe in a lot of the same principles: the food we share with our families everyday should be accessible and affordable but never dull and always
full of flavor. Neither of us are trained chefs, but both of us are damn good cooks. I think this is a great read.”
– Rachael Ray
“Big, bold food that busy families can love! This is a man - and a cookbook - after my own heart.” – Paula Deen
"... From spicy chilies and smoky rubs to a pesto chicken that's perfectly tuned, J.M. hits all the right flavor notes with these recipes." – Rocco DiSpirito
