I adore Demolition Desserts, so I just HAD to have a copy of Elizabeth's new book. It arrived yesterday and I read it into the wee hours of the night, It went way above & beyond my expectations. So well written, each recipe has a little story to go along with it, so interesting, such great photos, I can't wait to start cooking these easy to read & understand recipes! I also love the size, it won't take up lots of valuable counter space, the pages stay open in this well bound beauty that's choke full of tips, hints and loads of mouth watering, mind opening & mind blowing recipes! Thanks Elizabeth!

A professional relaxes Oct. 9 2012
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
These are recipes that Chef Elizabeth Falkner makes when she is at home. She calls them reinvented classics.
The book contains recipes for; condiments and basics, salads, soups, snacks and cocktails, pizza, pasta, noodles, grains and rice, main course, side dishes and desserts. She lists things to stock the pantry with and equipment and tools. There are also pages of advice on how she cooks and methods she prefers to use.

Some of the recipes take a bit of preparation, but if you enjoy cooking - they are not really that high of a difficulty. Pictures are included of many of the dishes and there is an index.
Our family has enjoyed; matzo ball soup, my mom's noodles with chicken, carrots and peas, pork tenderloin schnitzel with plum gastrique, and baked marble or Yukon gold potatoes with brown butter-sour cream sauce.
This is a book for those who wish to try some classic recipes with a bit of a different twist.

Worth the wait ! Dec 24 2012
By Christine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I had this book on order for 9 months before it came - and it sure was worth the wait! The recipes I have tried so far turned out perfectly. The ingredients are easy to find at local markets, and Elizabeth's directions are simple to follow - reading them almost makes you feel like she is right there in the kitchen with you. Great comments from my friends and family also, as we are enjoying these amazing meals together. Pizza is next!

Already used a couple of her recipes from her book the day I got it, and my friends that I cook for LOVE them. Plus I do have a big time food crush on chef Falkner so that helps a lot more for me.
