5.0 out of 5 stars Great recipe book Sept. 5 2012
To start off with, this is really a recipe book rather than a cookbook. I was initially considering giving it a lower rating because of that, but since it doesn't claim to be a book on cooking, I couldn't really knock it for that. About the only general tip it offers in the very brief introduction is to prepare beforehand and shop with a list so that you have all the ingredients on hand. That's about it. It then launches into 110 speedy recipes.

An interesting feature of the book is that some (not all) of the meat recipes come in four different techniques/speeds. Typically they are stove-top, pressure cooker, oven, and slow-cooker. I like this feature, as it lets you adjust a recipe to different amounts of time that you may have. I haven't had time to fully explore the differences in results, but they generally seem like good techniques each way. The pork tenderloin recipe in particular is quite good and flexible. It helps that Chef Smith chooses the right cuts of meat for the task at hand (e.g., pork tenderloin instead of shoulder). I have seen a lot of Chef At Home, and some of his new TV series, and I can say that most of the recipes in the book seem new to me. A couple, like the baked apples, were things I'd seen on the show, but most of them appear to be new to this book (maybe they're also in the new show, I don't know). Each recipe has a gorgeous full-page color picture to go along with it, making the book very visually appealing and inspiring. The only section of the book that didn't really ring my bell was the section on drinks. But then again, I like beer, single-malt scotch, and wine, which don't really lend themselves to cocktails. The drink recipes didn't seem bad, they were just not my thing, so I won't ding the book for including them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Been there... Nov. 2 2012
I purchased this book had a good look through it and returned it the next day. I am a big fan of Chef Michael but I found this book to over all be a repeat of the two previous books of his that I do own and do love; however I don't need more of the same. I love to cook and I am not afraid to experiment with different recipes and techniques and feel that this book is really intended for more of a novice cook.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but beware... Sept. 10 2014
I really rather enjoyed this book.

Despite it just being a collection of recipes, Michael Smith's warm personality still shines through.
Lots of simple, tasty food in here--don't expect anything mindblowing, just solid tasty food--with a few little twists.

The one issue I had is with his recipe for beef stew. It makes a delicious stew if not for one thing--he calls for 1 bunch of rosemary. I sprig would be more like it! I made it a couple times without rosemary, substituting other herbs I had around. Then I made it with rosemary, and against my better judgement put in a little less than what was called for.

It was horrific an bitter, as I should have realized. Rendered the entire beautiful stew inedible--but really I knew it'd be too much, and I should have used some common sense.

Apart from that I highly recommend it as a guide to some tasty tidbits and solid recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encourages you to try different cooking methods March 29 2014

I'm a big fan of Chef Michael and I love that he's always encouraging his audience / readers to try something different.

The recipes in this book give his readers ideas on various cooking methods. I'm new to pressure cookers. Chef Michael has shown me all the possibilities in creating tasty dishes in speedy minutes. There are several recipes in this book that have sparked my own cooking without a recipe style, that I prepare often using my own variations.

This book is kept handy and has inspired many meals.
