I love to cook and I love to try new recipes. The recipes are easy to understand and once the meal is in the oven you can forget it until time to dish-up. Sesame Chicken is sensational! A great book for anyone who doesn't mind spending a little time getting the ingredients together.

Book is awesome with great recipes. Too bad it was water damaged and some pages were stuck together and I lost some print in the process of separating them.

I have mixed feelings about this book. Jan. 24 2006
By Lynn in PA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have owned a 4-quart Romertopf for a few years and wanted a cookbook to try things beyond my current self concocted recipes for turkey parts and duck. The title of this book sounded very promising, but if I had looked through this book in a bookstore, I would not have gotten it.

Some of the recipes are nice, but could just as, actually more, easily be made using regular baking dishes than clay pots. I was looking for a cookbook where using a clay pot made a difference in the final product--and this book is not it.

As two examples out of many I could use:

1. Braised Red Cabbage with Cranberries - All the clay pot does is provide a covered dish for the final cooking. Prep cooking is done in a frying pan. One could just as easily make this dish completely in the frying pan, covering it until done, or use any covered container one already has and finish it in the oven.

2. Banana Bread Pudding - Calls for use of a cazuela, a Spanish, clay pot that looks like a high sided pie pan. The cazuela is not necessary for this dish to be made. Any similar shaped, metal or glass, baking dish could be used.

Whether one likes lamb or not, the recipe for Gigot of Lamb with Garlic is one of the few recipes in this little book that is probably much nicer made in a Romertopf (or other covered clay pot) than in a normal covered roasting pan.

The most frequently called for Romertopf size is 3-quart.

Excellent recipes! April 19 2009
By Ralph - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is excellent! Do I really mean it, given the insightful critiques on this page with low ratings for the book?
Yes, I do; and I give it 5 stars to balance out the reviews. Every dish I've made so far has been absolutely delicious--from
the plainer whole chicken and whole turkey recipes to fancier ones like Chicken Tagine with Green Olives and Preserved Lemon and
Meditteranean Fish Stew. I can't wait to try out more recipes, my only regret being that the book is a small compendum rather than a large one with lots of recipes. What you eat, however, will be good!
So add this to your collection and enjoy it.

Great Recipes Dec 20 2009
By ShoreGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For some really good and easy recipes this is the book for you. The only drawback to the book is that there is no nutritional information after each recipe.If this is a must for yiu, then skip the book.For me, it was not a deal nreaker, I lost my original copy and was happy to see that it was still in print ! I enjoy cooking meals from this book, as does my family !

Made me love my clay pot! May 10 2013
By R. Richmond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought a clay pot after hearing and reading people just rave and rave about them. The first meal came out underdone. The next came out burnt beyond belief. I just couldn't get it right, even though I was following the online recipes I had printed out. So for a while, I just ignored my Romertopf and wished I hadn't spent so much on something I would never use. One day, I saw this book in my recommendations and decided to buy it, hoping I could dust off my clay pot and actually use it again. Once I got the book, I decided to try a whole roasted chicken. I followed the recipe in the book and OMG it came out amazing, perfect, delicious...I cannot go on enough about how great it was. Everything I have made since using this book as a guide has come out just as great.
