Now with the help of this minutely-detailed guide, I can make my own fries at home and have them come out just like the store-bought variety. My waistline will probably regret it though.
The author breaks from traditional recipe books and concentrates on the technique with step-by-step details on how to do things just right for just a couple of items to get the results that match the restaurant-bought food. I love the attitude and the chatty style of the author as well. He doesn't talk down to the aspiring chef and takes the time to explain the "why" of each step in a friendly, enthusiastic, and helpful manner.
Bonus recipes are included at the end for hot dogs and Cajun style burgers, but without the in-depth discussion of the featured recipes.
Recommended for all fast and not-so-fast food gourmets and gourmands and home cooks that want to expand both their repertoire and their waistlines.
I followed the author's explicit instructions that the entire book must be read. That I did, but I'm not going to follow the author's explicit instructions that POSITIVE reviews should be placed on Amazon and negative feedback should be sent to him privately. Customers deserve to know all opinions, good and bad.
If you had never set foot in a kitchen or seen a hamburger before, I suppose that there might be some tiny benefit to this book. Otherwise, forget it! The author's special 'recipe' calls for cooking unseasoned ground beef patties on a griddle -- how is that gourmet? His suggested toppings include mustard, ketchup, pickles, onions. Again, how is this gourmet? One of the bonus recipes is a Cajun burger. The big secret there is:
putting bottled Cajun seasoning on the meat. Duh!
The other bonus is a hot dog recipe. The secret is:
-- cutting the dog in half. No other secrets, toppings, or gourmet serving suggestions.
This "book" might have made a couple of halfway decent blog articles for guys who have never cooked but want to buy a bunch of expensive equipment to cook their own burger and fries instead of going to a fast food restaurant. (Readers are conveniently directed to the author's blog where they can click through to Amazon using the author's affiliate code to buy their griddle, patty maker, and deep fryer.) For the rest of us, not worth the time spent reading it, even for free. Sorry. There are no great revelations within, certainly nothing remotely gourmet.
If you can't afford to dine out very often grab this book right now. You'll get 4 amazing recipes that you can easily prepare at home.
Highly recommended if you love to cook and you love burgers, fries and hotdogs!
`According to the Food Allergy Anaphylaxis Network, "Studies show that most allergic individuals can safely eat peanut oil (not cold pressed, expelled, or extruded peanut oil - sometimes represented as gourmet oils)." They recommend that allergic individuals consult a physician regarding whether or not to avoid peanut oil.'
Please note the word MOST is used. That does not mean that all people allergic to peanuts will not react to things cooked in peanut oil. I am one of those people who has the joy of trying to explain to people why I cannot eat out due to my super sensitive peanut allergy. I find misleading information like this to be MOST frustrating as it leads people to think I am making up how serious this allergy is for me. Even the study only claims overwhelming majority, not all!
Pick up this book if you want to grill some great burgers over the weekend!
The author knows the business and how to adapt the cooking techniques and tools to your home kitchen.
I couldn't help my stomach from growling while reading the book.
It includes two bonus recipes that you'll absolutely love. This book delivers much more value than the $0.99 it costs.
