Great book, great guy
on September 18, 2013
This cookbook has been great. I love that he gives you a list at the beginning of items to always keep on hand in the pantry (olive oils, balsamic vinegar, pasta, etc.). It made it quick and easy for me to get what I need to stock my pantry. After that it was just picking up a few fresh ingredients for each meal. And they've been YUMMY. :-)
Also, I met him at a book signing for this cookbook last week. Awesome guy. An elderly woman came up to have her book signed and she had a print out from the Internet of a recipe of his. She told him it didn't come out very well! LOL He actually went through the whole recipe with her step by step and discussed with her what to do. And he wrote notes on there for her! Sweetest thing ever. I mean, cute guy who cooks AND is super nice to old ladies? I'm in!
