Chef Bernard and Chef Ron have a passion for life and travel. With this book they translate that passion into a language we all understand - food. The recipes here are creative and witty, much like the chefs. Follow them through their journey of life and enjoy every bite. --Gavin Kaysen-- Executive Chef Café Boulud ,NYC
Felicitiacions to Bernard and Ron for a well-crafted manuscript. I knew those two were troubadours at heart, but never realized the extent of their travels. Joining them on this culinary voyage through forty countries is quite a ride, and I don t even need my passport! I thoroughly enjoyed the culturally inspired recipes, anecdotes, and the magnificent photography of The Flying Pan. --Pierre Chambrin -- Executive Chef to The White House 1990-94 Presently Executive Chef, St. Louis Club
From the Inside Flap
Their passion for food, culture and culinary travel jumps off the pages. In this book, they translate their discoveries into a language we all understand. Bernard and Ron "are energized by the beauty of life, the art of cooking, the discovery of travel, and the passion of the human race." They wrote Flying Pans in order to share their passion with a wide audience.
The book takes readers everywhere from Thailand to Brazil and is written in a conversational, reader friendly style which encourages cooking. The food photography of Gregory Bertolini brings the sight, smell, and taste of the chef's exotic recipes to life. Recipes are well researched, kitchen-tested and easy to navigate for the home cook.
"Flying Pans" contains several unique and helpful sections. The "Kitchen Drawer" section explores the chefs' top 20 favorite tools, "Out of a Bind" provides ingredient substitutions, and "Stock Options" teaches the foundation of sauce making

But when I actually got into the book, I realized it could never be a favorite cookbook--for me: The recipes are very involved and time-consuming--and I don't have that kind of time; in almost every recipe there is an ingredient that is--really--very hard to find--I live in rural Texas and don't like the expense of buying online (wild ostrich, wattleseed?); there are a lot of small plates that I can't be bothered with, again, since I don't have the time; and there are way too many seafood recipes--again, living in rural Texas, even being near the coast, I won't be able to find a constant supply of seafood this fresh. Granted: Often, but not always, substitutions are suggested for hard-to-find ingredients and there are two pages at the end of the book that act as a sort of ingredient thesaurus.
If you work long hours, then these recipes are for leisurely weekends. In general, most dishes are composed of many individual "parts"--all combining into a beautiful compilation on the plate--incorporating all the senses. While the cooking techniques are not difficult, all those parts will necessitate a lot of prep work and lots of pots, pans and dishes.Read more ›
Buy this book. You will love it.
P.S. Some of the recipes have hard-to-find ingredients, but the hunt can be fun. If you're timed pressed as I am, you can use the substitute ingredients provided the chefs and the results are still spectacular.
Flying Pans: Two Chefs, One World offers recipes that go beyond the standard fare presented in the majority of cookbooks today. Guillas and Oliver's dishes range from elegant gourmet offerings to rustic family-style gems, but all of them have deliciousness and flare in common. The latter is translated via exquisite photography that awakens appetites and inspires cooks to stop admiring from their sofa and begin utilizing it in the comfort of their kitchen. It is a magnificent first effort from two worldly and accomplished chefs sharing lessons learned from their decades of international travel, and one deserving of high praise.
