Review

"Anne Burrell continues to be the voice of a modern cooking teacher. She leaves us fearless to take risks in the kitchen and tackle an array of different ingredients--with the techniques of a professional chef and the excitement of a home cook.  It's one thing to know Anne Burrell's unique voice and enthusiasm for food from her first book, Cook Like a Rock Star. It's a whole other thing when her second book, Own Your Kitchen, about tasty empowerment, delivers more of the same and then some! I love that she celebrates under-loved ingredients like squid with such passion. Brined potato chips? Yes, please. Such a great idea. I love that Anne's Italian sensibility mixes so well with her love of American ingredients. As I read the book, I hear her voice and words of encouragement throughout!"

I love Anne's cooking, especially the recipes from "Secrets of a Restaurant Chef," but some of the recipes in her cookbook don't make sense. For example, for the "Garlic Chicken and Israeli Couscous" recipe. The photo does not match what the ingredients dictate. Also, the directions make no sense. For the step when you add the thyme bundle and bay leaf, it says to add them and then take them out, without saying how much time to cook them. The recipes do have flavor, but I highly suggest that you compare the recipe with the Food Networks' version and make a hybrid recipe.

I have Anne's First book and have just received this book! OMG! This is the book for the average cook! You will find ingredients and recipes that you can find in your local grocery store. I can't wait to try her Turkey Herby dinner recipes. Plus the sandwiches chapter is AWESOME! Bravo Anne for making a cookbook for the rest of us that don't have specialty stores to get our ingredients!

clear easy to follow instructions, most ingredients are readily available in local markets and most of all because Chief Anne is an excellent chief, teacher and I always enjoy her shows and make regular use of her books.

Anne's 2nd cookbook and it, again, is the Anne we love and follow. Quirky, entertaining and most importantly instructional and delicious!

This is a very practical and modern cookbook. I really like the approach to get control of your kitchen. For those of us that never had the great opportunity to go to cooking school, this helps to add to our basic knowledge in a common sense way.

I like watching Anne on the Food Net Work and here recipes. Only wish I had ordered the book instead of having it downloaded on my Kindle. So much easier to follow recipes and view them in a book. This sure doesn't reflect against her as a chef thou. She no's how to cook and is fun to watch.

The book has a lot of photos, which is wonderful, and for the most part the format and the recipes seem pretty good, there are a lot of helpful hints in the instructions, which are well written and detailed. But... I'll give her the "Inspire" but the book seems a bit soft on the "Empower" claim.

You can tell the book was put out by the Food Network, and they laid it on a bit thick with the "Anne Burrell" schtick. The book could have used a lot more Anne the educator and a lot less Anne the character. The brisket recipe ends with "A tisket a tasket a brisket for my tummy" or some such non-sense, which I suppose is intended to show her having fun in the kitchen with her recipe. The least they could have done was make it rhyme, perhaps "A tasket, a tisket, a really yummy briskett." I blame the editor. a good editor is supposed to help tone down the schmaltz and keep the author on track.

Her Luau Pork recipe left me wondering. "Marinating" a pork roast in a brine with pineapple juice for 24 hours? Won't pineapple juice adversely effect the texture of the meat at that length of time? And her Brined Herby Roast Turkey, this is the first time I've seen carrots and celery in the brine mixture. I'm not saying it wouldn't work, but it just seems odd. And her Chicken and Israeli Couscous recipe calls for a 1/2 cup of tomato paste. That's like an entire can of tomato paste. At some point, wouldn't it be easier to use tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes?

And the title "Own Your Kitchen" had me really psyched to get the book, but her first cookbook was a lot better in terms of getting comfortable in your kitchen. This just seemed mostly like a collection of recipes with vignettes about how she developed the recipe based on the glamorous adventures she has had traveling the world.

Love her recipes. She makes everything look so easy on her show so I love her cook book. Yummy! Edit: This cook book just flows so well. The way she explains her food makes it so easy to understand her recipes. I truly love all the pictures she has included in her book. When I miss her show I just open this little baby up! Buy this!
