Editorial Reviews

Review

"I think Brian has another gold here. The recipes are accessible, healthy, and a great addition to anyone's kitchen, especially those who love to entertain!" --Giada De Laurentiis

“I have always admired Brian's pursuit of excellence and the dedication that has made him a champion and icon in figure skating. He has now taken that passion into the kitchen and shares his Gold Medal creations with us. I'm lucky to know firsthand how yummy Brian's cooking is! We now know what Brian Boitano would make!” —Kristi Yamaguchi
 
“What Would Brian Boitano Make? is a winner. It’s full of those ‘go-to’ recipes, the ones you return to again and again that become staples of your repertoire.”
—Mitchell Rosenthal, Chef/Owner of the San Francisco restaurants Town Hall, Salt House, and Anchor and Hope, and author of Cooking My Way Back Home

“Is there nothing that Olympic gold medalist Brian Boitano cannot do? From the ice to his kitchen, he has the Midas touch. 6.0s across the board to you, Brian Boitano!”
 
—Christine Brennan, USA Today columnist, ABC News commentator, and best-selling author of Inside Edge

I am delighted to be the first reader to review this book, as
What Would Brian Boitano Make? is a book that will delight any foodie or fan of Boitano, be it as a chef or a skater. The recipes look tantalizing and festive but well within the ability of an average cook to successfully make, and most of them include marvelous, sumptuous color photographs that could make one want to eat the paper upon which they are printed! Brian offers many tips and tweaks one can do with the ingredients, including ones that he did with the dishes that gave him the recipe ideas in the first place.

The book could be subtitled, Why Did Brian Boitano Make?, as it features an abundance of anecdotes on Brian's culinary memories, from his Aunt Tree's passed-down-from-memory Italian specialties to the restaurants of the locals in the various countries that he visited during skating competitions and tours. Between the recipes, there is much genuine love of friends, and especially family, expressed through the pages. This book will remind the reader of his or her own fun times with food, family, and friends, and will inspire many new equally tasty discoveries!

This book has literally gotten me back into the kitchen again. I live alone and got out of the habit of cooking for myself, but as soon as I saw some of Brian's recipes I immediately went out and bought the ingredients for two of them: his Spaghetti Carbonara and Mac 'n Cheese. His recipes aren't intimidating like in many cookbooks, yet are very unique. And he provides the reader with lots of helpful hints with each dish, which are invaluable for people like me who are often unsure of themselves in the kitchen. Many times I find myself just sitting down and reading all of the text preceding each chapter and recipe....once you get started it's hard to put the book down. I've bought several copies for friends. One of them, who has a large family and often entertains, said she had stopped buying cookbooks because she normally only found a handful of recipes she wanted to try. In Brian's, every other page is flagged, and she is so excited about getting started (the Parmesan-crusted Brussels Sprouts and Shrimp and Polenta are on the menu for tonight). This book is so well-organized and user-friendly, the photos are outstanding, and the menu section in the back is brilliant. Do not hesitate to purchase a copy; believe me, you won't be disappointed.

One of the best cookbooks I have come across in a long time. Everything from the delicious recipes to the beautiful photos... I have actually started to look forward to cooking for my family again. My favorites so far-- Lemon Meringue cocktail-Pork Tenderloin w/Plum Salsa and the Rigatoni (yummy).

Brian Boitano has exceptional taste in food, and the recipes he's developed prove it. Especially love the appetizers and beverages section.

I can't believe I'm writing a review for a cookbook becuase "cooking" is not really my thing. But...

A. Most of these recipies are really easy. There are a few trickier ones which I plan on trying because the recipies so far are giving me the confidence that I can pull them off.

B. The 3 I've made are delicious (despite/because of their being healthy). And one I made for a dinner party had both couples requesting the recipie.

C. Cocktail recipies included! And a wide range of them too from large group punch/sangria, to fruity and also more classic based.

D. This isn't what I look for in a cookbook, but: the book looks great. So that's a nice bonus, though I'm more interested in the functionality of it all.

Bon Appetit, Gold Medal Style!

This is by far the best cook book I own, and will ever own! I am a wife and mother, with little time for meals. I am so happy I purchased this book because the meals are fast, easy, delicious, and look gourmet! There are too many great things about this book to write in a review, but I will list a few of my favorites:
1) The recipes are incredibly easy to follow, simple wordage, to the point.
2) The layout of the book is genius, you will see what I mean when you get the book - and he even has 'menus' for an entire dinner/lunch or whatever! Love it.
3) The recipes are from food I use on a daily basis, and can make in my kitchen, with my tools, no culinary training necessary.
He has done a fantastic job with this book, and to top it off, he really makes you feel like you are a part of his family and kitchen with the stories, recipes, and where they come from. I am going to buy more to pass them out as gifts - so worth it!
Highly recommend this book. Very happy.

Love this easy to read, easy to make, cookbook. I use Post-Its to mark recipes that I want to try as I read through cookbooks and magazines. Brian's cookbook was festooned with hot pink Post-Its!

I have always admired Brian Boitano since those Gold-winning Olympics and was thrilled when Food Network gave him his own show. I made many of those recipes and they were all delicious, so as soon as I saw That he wrote a cookbook, I pre-ordered it and was not disappointed. The recipes are delicious and loved the personal stories throughout. A delightful addition to my cookbook library.
