About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
I was particularly attracted to this due to offerings such as: Corn bread, Bacon and Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes; Jalepono Seafood Dip; Spinach, Mushroom and Goat Cheese Ravioli; Pistachio-Crusted Halibut with Lemon-Chardonnay Sauce; Cauliflower, White Rose Potato and Crab Bisque with Truffle Oil; Sweet Potato Mousse. Nice color shots of select recipes!
I also appreciate his revealing of his career path and faith commitment as well. Well done, G. Garvin, I'll be looking for your next output.

My one criticism is that I wish a hardback edition of this book was available!
Chef Garvin has totally captured the black foodie thing. Yes there are soul food classics like candied yams. But how about sweet potato mousse and pan-seared scallops with morel mushroom sauce? Like his show, this book makes four-and five-star eating experiences approachable and attainable for those who have been afraid, complacent or sheltered.
This book has recipes for the novice cook. More importantly it is the type of book that will still be relevant as your skills increase. There are about 24 color photos of the food; I would prefer more.
Now for the fun part. This man understands his audience! There are more pictures of him than of the food (and I wouldn't have it any other way!) No other celebrity chef could get away with this, but perhaps G. Garvin is the ultimate celebritiy chef.
