I am a big fan of "The Chew". It is a program that I record and look forward to in the evenings when I watch television. This book is divided by the seasons and features recipes from each of the hosts. Every recipe has an indicator bar that denotes cooking time, skill level, prep time and cost. Icons indicate whether a recipe is "Light & Healthy", "Simple Italian", "Viewer's Choice", "Two-Fer (Two Meals in One)", "5-in-5" (5 ingredients in 5 minutes), "Kid Friendly" or "Cocktail". Most (but not all) feature a photo. The book also has interviews with the hosts, photos of celebrity guests on the show and sections about the holidays, entertaining, etc.Read more ›
Categories in the book include light and healthy, simple Italian, viewer's choice (from the show), two meals in one, 5 ingredients in 5 minutes, kid friendly and cocktails.
Each recipe also includes how difficult it is to make--but all are either easy or moderate. They also include the price range to prepare.
The authors share recipes and information about themselves, including what made them fall in love with food in the first place.
The style of the book is casual and user-friendly. You will get to know the authors a bit more by reading the book. There are also photos from the show and facts about it...
Which leads to...this is a basic cookbook that is fine for fans of The Chew, but certainly not all that comprehensive.
Instead, it is a fun look at the people from the show and some of their favorite recipes.
I have tried a few recipes:
Roasted Chicken with Sweet Potatoes and Sage: lovely. A classic with a nice twist--sage and sweet potatoes...love it.
Banana Pudding: crazy delicious--insanely soft and sweet; gooey and chewy
Potato Leek Soup: a little thin; not exciting
Superfoods Smoothie: go-to health boost
If you are a fan you will love this book. If you aren't, there are lots of tantalizing recipes to try. I have ear-marked: Cast-Iron Pork Pie, Chile Chicken Flautas and Bacon, Egg and Cheese Casserole. That said, this cookbook is definitely limited in scope--it has about 100 recipes. Unless you are familiar with the show and the types of dishes the chefs make, I would suggest you flip through the book before buying to decide if there are enough recipes that you would want to make.

I purchased the book new from Amazon.
P.S. I have tried so many of the recipes shown on the show and all turned out great.
