Ok - let me start off by saying that I am a huge fan of Tyler - his recipes have gotten me through more holidays and family dinners than I can count. The thing I love the most about his food, while it isn't fussy and overdone, is that it works as a great basis for the cook to build off of. I have printouts of his recipes from Food Network that have handwritten notes all over them, adding ingredients or changing cooking methods or times. His recipes really are accessible, fun, and inspiring. Because of this, I could not wait to get his new book...and at first, I was a little underwhelmed.

The book, physically, is not a nice, glossy, jacket-wearing cookbook. The book is bigger than his other books and the cover has this odd, ribbing to it. (think of one of those moving, image pictures) Also, the cover art is really more subdued than his other books - so, I think there is a lack of excitement when people get a hold of the book. It is different.

Also, I think some people are thrown by the format of the book too. It is not just a regular cookbook, with a tiny little narrative, if any, over each recipe and full of nothing but recipes. This book is more personal. It is more casual. I think he was going for the FEELING of a comfortable, casual family dinner here. There are more stories. The recipes are more casual. Even the narrator's voice is more familiar and friendly. This isn't a cookbook, it is a book about his personal relationship with cooking for the people he cares about and his favorite recipes to do that with. So, WAY different than the other offerings he has. Once I realized that, this was less like his show and more like being in the kitchen with him, rummaging through his recipe card file - I got it.

And boy am I glad I did.

Format: Hardcover
This is a sturdy cookbook, but also one that tells much of Tyler Florence and his family. He gives an eloquent introduction: family is the people you spend a great deal of time with, care for and trust...a two-way street. Then he has pages throughout that tell a bit about his family and friends with pictures. He explains what a family meal is to a chef. This book is very similar in style to his book Dinner at My Place.

The pictures of the recipes are luscious. He tells a small amount about each recipe, such as how he discovered his recipe for creamed spinach, omelets are a test for young culinary cooks and how his friend went on a quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. It contains recipes for: brunch, simple dinners, salads and sides, easy desserts, potluck, southern, soups and starters, mains and sides.
These recipes are not the simplest, but not all that difficult. Many have a lot of steps in them. But there are some really good ones that have been hits in our household: Tolan's glazed turkey meatloaf (which we have even used beef instead of turkey for an ingredient), Chicken, avocado and bacon salad, Chili relleno rice, Porkie pie, and probably the best Beef Wellington recipe.

Cookbook collectors, fans of Tyler Florence and those who would like some different recipes would appreciate this book.

I received my copy of Tyler's book yesterday and could not put it down...and it's a cookbook! The photography is beautiful, the recipes are well-written and instructive, and the stories Tyler shares are so much fun. Even the cover is user-friendly -- durable and no jacket. The recipes are not complicated and include ingredients that everyone can find. I plan to cook my way through this book beginning tonight! I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes Tyler and/or loves family-style fare with a twist. Thank you, Tyler, for sharing this book with all of us!

My copy of Tyler's newest creation arrived today. I just sat down and quickly took a look. The photograhy is awesome and makes you want to drop what you are doing and cook, like right now. As I read the narration I can almost hear Tyler's voice. The recipes are my style, no ingredient that I can't get here in Wisconsin. These are family recipes that Tyler prepares for his kids, wife, family and friends. Get this one. Or two! Give your family cooks a copy for Christmas. I'm not sure how I am going to break it to my husband that we need to move to Northern California, to Tyler's neighborhood

This is the first cookbook that I have read like a novel. I so enjoy reading about how food and family mean so much to so many. The photos were wonderful, mouth watering, and inspirational. I have tried many of Tyler Florence's recipes and hear his "voice" while I'm reading his words. His enthusiasm for bringing his family and friends together is very evident. I shared this book with my mother, we are planning a menu based on this book!

I have many of Mr.Florence's cookbooks and enjoy reading & cooking from them. This book is all about family and friends eating together and enjoying food. The book is separated into sections. First, eating at home. Second, eating together w/ friends, neighbors etc...Third, eating Out. He includes recipes not only from himself but also from his friends and family members. It kind of reminds me of a community cookbook! There are beautiful illustrations, which helps you see what the outcome of a recipe will look like. Since getting this recently, I have made the chocolate tart at least 4 times. It has dark chocolate in it and is rich! Yum! Relatives ask me to bring it! It is a crowd pleaser! I also made the banana bread and gave some as gifts this year.....I never thought I would forsake the banana bread recipe I have used for years, but let me tell you this one is a keeper! The Chile Relleno Rice is so incredibly easy to make and really good (but probably not that great for you) The Chicken and Dumplings had an interesting flavor to it and was very homey! Nana Clark's Salad was full of broccoli, cauliflower and radishes,scallions,(and lots of mayo!) but is great to bring to a potluck. Lots of complements were given! I wanted to like the Apple Brown Betty but it was just OK. I have made other recipes in this book and plan to make more including The Roasted Beet Salad and the Creamed Spinach. They look great. This book is worth the price for just the chocolate tart!
