This little cookbook packs a lot of punch. There is something in here for everyone, even the world's pickiest five year old. My son previously would only eat 11 kinds of food, all of it expensive and mostly pre-made. The first recipe I made was Jimmy Crack Corn Crack and against all odds my kid ate an entire ... fritter!!! I had to put a bit of ketchup on it but he actually ate it. ^_^
I have since tried out more excellent recipes from Dino's book and every one of them so far has been a crowd pleaser. I love the way its written almost like the author is just chatting with the reader. He explains different methods and encourages us budding chefs to experiment and grow, to push beyond the boundaries of just following a recipe. Many recipes are off the wall in a good way; new ingredients and combinations that would not have occurred to me. An excellent, excellent cook book.
