5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Transformation to a Gourmet Chef!, January 15, 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Instant Gourmet: Delicious Meals in 20 Minutes or Less (Paperback)
This is my all-time favorite cookbook (and I own a ton of them). The recipes are easy to prepare and usually contain fewer than ten ingredients. I have found at least fifteen dishes that are always dependable, quick to prepare, and exceptionally popular with guests. The only downside is that very few of the recipes are particularly health-conscious -- heavy cream and butter are two of the most common ingredients. Nonetheless, I recommend this cookbook heartily to anyone who likes good food but doesn't have hours to spend in the kitchen. Too bad it is now out of print!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great,easy recipes for sophisticated, time-pressed people, July 19, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Instant Gourmet: Delicious Meals in 20 Minutes or Less (Paperback)
This is a terrific book for people who want to prepare 5-star recipes, but don't have the time to spend an entire day inthe kitchen. It's especially good for dinner parties, since the recipes are sophisticated, but EASY! Great for people who don't really cook a lot, but want to fake it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical but yummy and creative, January 24, 2006

This review is from: Instant Gourmet: Delicious Meals in 20 Minutes or Less (Paperback)
Great shortcuts and simple, short recipes in this book. Great hors d'oeuvres and entree ideas, not run-of-the-mill. Another great thing is the author will not make you use oodles of pots/pans if just one will do. I've had this paperback for almost 10 years, and all of the recipes I've tried so far have been spot-on.
