Editorial Reviews

Review

"Antonia was a contestant I was always happy to see on Top Chef, when judging—or simply watching at home. As a judge, I was relieved to see her as I knew that, if nothing else, I'd be eating well that day. One of the strongest competitors and best cooks ever to appear on the long running series. Smart, no nonsense, wise—and a reliably terrific chef. She grounded the seasons on which she appeared with smart decision making, soulful flavors, and the kind of leadership qualities others would be wise to emulate.  It's about time she wrote a book."
—Anthony Bourdain, bestselling author of Kitchen Confidential


“Antonia has combined Top Chef tasty with busy-mom easy to make incredibly delicious and approachable recipes. Schedule-juggling supermom or not, anyone with a busy schedule and a desire for quick homemade goodness will find themselves returning to this cookbook time and time again.”
–Carla Hall, Top Chef fan favorite and co-host of ABC’s The Chew


“Antonia is a friend, but also an undisputed creative chef. Many moms will enjoy the quick, delicious and accessible recipes, but more important they can teach their kids about food and the importance of the bonding and memories that can happen when you share food around a table as a family—just the way Antonia grew up in her family. A must not only for moms, but for any home cook!”
–Hubert Keller, chef & owner, Fleur de Lys

I received this book today and was really looking forward to it. The recipes sound delicious and overall I want to try most of them. The one disappointment is I typically enjoy a cookbook due to beautiful photos and this book lacks photographs. There are two small sections with a handful of pics of finished dishes. I find pictures not only add to the aesthetic of a cookbook, but also help to show how a completed dish should look. I think that is my only complaint. The recipes all sound yummy and straightforward. You will enjoy this book if you are a top chef fan and are looking for delicious family meals.

Although there are no pictures, I found the recipes to be easy to use and the dishes didn't require a lot of time making. Well worth the price.

I didn't find this cookbook to speak to busy moms at all. While the recipes do look tasty, there were a suspiciously large number that involved deep frying. How many busy moms have time to deal with the disposal of fry oil? And I'm not normally one to shy away from rich dishes, but some of them were over-the-top (cooking mussels in a pound of melted butter, for example). The author mentions being on Top Chef repeatedly, and I can't blame her for claiming bragging rights. But as far as time-saving tips for moms are concerned, I would look elsewhere.

I was so excited about the release of this cookbook that I kept checking for the big day for months prior to its release. And, to be fair, the recipes sound tasty and probably work very well - Ms Lofaso has a fab track record after all.

But for me, the best and most useful cookbooks are the whole package, including mouthwatering photos of the recipes so you can work up an appetite while looking for mealtime inspiration. As the eponymous busy mum, part of saving time when I look for new recipes to try out on my family is the photo shortcut to tickle my taste buds rather than having to read through the recipe first to see whether I might find it scrumptious. I returned the book.
