Chopped is one of my favorite Food TV Shows out there. It always mesmerized me how the chefs could create something astonishing from just one basket filled with random ingredients. The Chopped Cookbook is just as amazing as the show. Filled with beautiful illustrations and variety of recipes, this is one cookbook to have in your kitchen.

It also includes different sections which are extremely helpful. For example, The Chopped Pantry has a list of different ingredients and spices that chefs mostly use and are listed under categories. Baking Basics - Flour, Baking Powder, etc. I think one of my favorite things is the graphs that explain what goes with what. I'm one of those people who constantly has to buy something at the grocery store just for a recipe so this will be extremely useful to me. Absolutely love it!

I am a chopped fan and thought this would be an interesting addition to my cookbook collection. I would have preferred a spiral back. So it would stay open as you're using it.... thus the 4 stars instead of 5. Other than that, it has some very interesting, doable recipes. The pictures are lovely, however, not on every recipe, just FYI. Some are little more involved than I will probably get, but it does have some recipes with some out of the usual ingredients that would be challenging to try. Over all, it's a great cook book!

Full color pictures, great descriptions, easy recipes. I love that this book explains what different ingredients are and what you can use to substitute. I watch these cooking shows and I hear them say "I would have liked more acid" and I found in this book that an acid could be lemon or lime juice, vinegar, balsamic, etc. This book is very easy to read and understand and I am excited to start cooking!

I enjoy watching Chopped, but never once have I thought, “Oh, I wish I had the recipe to make that.” I’m often thankful that I’m not a judge who has to eat the weird combinations of food. So, when I saw there was a Chopped cookbook, I was intrigued. I knew for sure that it couldn’t be a cookbook about combining crazy, unusual, or expensive ingredients because no one would actually buy a cookbook full of recipes they would never make.

The concept of the cookbook is using the ingredients you already have. In looking through the cookbook, there were several recipes that stood out to me that I definitely wanted to make (tortellini with cream cheese alfredo and peas, peanut chicken noodle salad, turkey lettuce wrap, pizza strata, etc.). Of course, there were also recipes that I might try and ones that I know I won’t ever make. What I liked best about this cookbook was the tips about how to choose and store different vegetables, how to combine different textures and chemistry to make a great dish, and how to use that knowledge to create great dishes when you don’t have the ingredients in a recipe. What I like the least is that at least a couple of ingredients in each recipe aren’t something that I regularly keep in my pantry. I had to buy numerous ingredients to make the peanut chicken noodle salad.

The peanut chicken noodle salad I made from this book was good. Not a favorite I’ll make all the time, but a good, easy, filling salad for summer that I would probably make again, especially since I now have some ingredients I don’t know what else I would use them for. I’m looking forward to trying more recipes. I don’t think this will become my go-to cookbook, but it’s one I’ll probably use every so often.

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review.

Sure, there are some inspirational recipes in this cookbook which include kale and innovative style ... but honestly I was a bit disappointed with this book. This is definitely a good beginner style cookbook and does a great job at exemplifying variance and change but simply does not really live up to all the hype I would expect a Chopped Cookbook to deliver.

Most of the recipes are simple enough for the home cook, but most of it lacks a real ingenious creativity that I would expect from watching soooooo much Chopped over the years. They played this book EXTREMELY safe probably more to appeal to the masses. I read this book from front to back in literally an hour and at the end was like "This is it?". They have a few quotes from the judges sprinkled in it, but not enough to make it really impacting. I would like to think they'd give each judge a full page of commentary or at least each judge a section in each category.

Any person who really wants to learn about pairing lots of foods together with what is in their pantry should really look at the book Culinary Artistry. I highly recommend this menu planning book that has top worldly chefs input for pairing foods. And it's inexpensive as an older CIA textbook.

Just got this cookbook in and love it. I am a college student and do not have a packed fridge, this allows me to use what I have and make a delicious meal. It has a ton of options and most of them seem to be very healthy as well. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
