The photography is gorgeous, and guaranteed to make your mouth-water and head you toward the kitchen. The recipes do require some actual kitchen time and preparation, but as most mothers can tell you, sometimes preparing comfort food is a solace in itself. Experienced cooks will be able to use microwave shortcuts, although these recipes are stove-top and oven in design.
This book can also serve as a coffee-table book because these perennially popular American dishes, so artfully photographed, constitute an art form. Now how about tying on an apron and putting together a coconut custard pie for dessert this evening! Recommended.
This is a wonderful little cookbook and everyone I show it to absolutely loves it.
The reviewer who "one star-ed" this book for not being up to snuff is completely missing the point. "Diner" is one book in a series entitled "The best of CASUAL cuisines of the world" and by the name is obviously filled with hearty Diner-style recipies.
It is not a "Lets make the most outragous thing we can think of from a list of ingredients that would make Martha Stewart green with envy" type of book. It is not supposed to be.
The Forward that briefly cronicles the history of the American Diner and the side notes to the recipies are worth the price of admission. The photography is terrific and, even though a FEW of the items are very simple to prepare, all the recipies I have tried are very tasty.
If you are a cookbook SNOB this may not be the book for you, but for the rest of comfort food loving America I think it would be a welcome addition to any cookbook collection! (Especially one that sits out for people to thumb through!)
