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

About the Author

Brian Boitano is more than just a champion on the ice; he also gives a winning performance in the kitchen. His Food Network series, What Would Brian Boitano Make?, premiered in August 2009 and is now on the Cooking Channel. On the air, Brian demonstrates his culinary skills and talent for one-of-a-kind entertaining. With a lifelong passion for food and cooking, Brian hosts unpredictable get-togethers at his San Francisco home and creates menus that focus on innovative but accessible dishes. Few athletes have enjoyed the artistic and popular success that Brian has since winning the gold medal for the United States at the 1988 Winter Olympics Games in Calgary, Canada. He created and routinely performs his signature jump, the Tano Triple, so difficult it has rarely been completed by anyone else. In competitions and exhibitions, Brian continues to raise the level of skating to new heights. After turning professional in 1988, he won six world professional titles, placing first and scoring perfect 10s in each of ten consecutive championships. As a professional, he won the first 20 out of the 24 competitions he entered, a record unmatched in the history of skating. Brian has won more professional titles than any other skater in the history of the sport; among those titles are six World Professional Championships. Brian won a primetime Emmy Award, television's highest honor, for his starring role in the 1990 HBO movie Carmen on Ice. In 1992, he and fellow Olympic gold medalist Katarina Witt toured North America in three successful ice shows: Skating, Skating II and Skating '92, which were broadcast on network television. In 1994, he starred in Nutcracker on Ice with Oksana Baiul and Viktor Petrenko. For 15 years, he toured with Champions On Ice around the country, headlining 25 national tours. Brian has provided expert commentary on televised skating shows for ABC, NBC and Turner networks.Brian is a three-time Olympian and has won more than 50 titles, including 23 international gold medals, two World titles, two Pro/AM titles, 16 professional titles, four U.S. National titles, as well as the Olympic Gold Medal. He has been inducted into the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame, the U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame, and the National Italian-American Hall of Fame. In 1998, Brian founded Youth Skate, a non-profit organization that introduces San Francisco's inner-city youth to the sport of ice skating.

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).

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!

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.

I have made a number of recipes from this book and they are all delicious. Not only are they easy to make, but the ingredients are not difficult to find. He also gives substitutes if there is something you may not be able to find, or also a few lower calorie options. The Green Goddess dressing is beyond sublime! Where the book is a real treat is the stories and lovely photos of his friends, family and skating events. It is like spending time chatting with a delightful friend followed by a great meal!
The recipes can be done by any level of cook and even though they are not hard, the flavors are sophisticated. So far I have made the crab and avocado crostinis, several of the salads, penne with broccoli rabe and goat cheese, tuna steak with green goddess dressing, and the salmon with pea/basil pesto.
Highly recommended.
It just makes me miss his show that much more though....

Usually when I get a new cookbook I "tag" the recipes I want to try. When I was going through this book, I realized I was tagging every recipe! I've tried 3-4 so far & they were awesome! I really like that his recipes are simple & easy to make. Not a lot of steps & ingredients that I can actually find! Can't wait to make more!
