I have enjoyed cooking since I was 12, and I find it impressive that Emeril will give up his secrets. I have tried many of his recipes in both books, and none have disappointed me. Everything has come out delicious and very tasty.
As far as the so-called "commercialism" of the book, I believe this was done for the people who genuinely are fans of Emeril. I got a kick out of seeing the pictures that are behind the scenes. I can see why people who wouldn't know too much about him would think it was "too much".
Cooking is my hobby, as well as collecting cookbooks. I have a whole double bookcase of cookbooks, and I am proud to have Emeril's TV Dinners in it. I plan on collecting all his books.
the least. I've made several of the dishes in this book, as well as
dishes from his show...and all have turned
out to be delicious. Try the Delmonico Chicken or Shrimp Creole. The
dishes take time and preparation, and some take practice and will be
better the second time you make it, but they are excellent. One
downside is that, for me in the Midwest, a lot of the fish/shellfish
ingredients aren't readily available.
I wholeheartedly recommend
this book for the cooks out there who are adventurous and willing to
experiment. You will enjoy it. Those who are more at home with
macaroni and cheese from a box, stay away.
fan book, and recipes. It's not a culinary institution textbook with
rigid rules and exact measurements, it's just like the TV SHOW, get
it? If you don't like the show, don't buy the book.
I bought the
book because I'm an OK cook, but I want to get better, I love Emeril's
approach to cooking, his personality on TV and the personable nature
of his restaurants. The book is designed to be a collection of the
better tapings from his show and the recipes that made the shows
click. How can you present a book about a TV SHOW and not have
pictures? .... Emeril is
correct on one thing, "It ain't rocket science" but he
forgot to remind people to use common sense in the kitchen. I highly
recommend this book if you are a fan of the show and want some recipes
and some background information on Emeril. Remember the title of the
book, it is designed to be just like any of the PBS companion books to
the shows with the same titles. It is a fun book, the recipes do work,
they do allow for improv work, modification, embellishments and they
will make you happy! END
He doesn't give cup and tablespoon amounts on his show when he cooks, so this book is useful to see what might go into some of the dishes he's created. So you get his biscuit recipe here, where measurements are critical to success. And are they nice and light! This is now my favorite biscuit recipe because I never could get them fluffy rather than heavy and flakey.
You do have to read these recipes carefully; the goat cheese and leek cake attracted me because I love both these ingredients. However, it's listed as vegetarian but contains a LOT of bacon! Hahaha! Since when are pigs vegetables? (there are vegetarian substitutes for bacon, but I'll bet Emeril wouldn't touch them with a 10-foot pepper grinder!)
There's plenty of his unique wit in the book, so it's fun to read. This is not most useful cookbook I own, but for a few recipes, it is unsurpassed ....
