I've only tried a few recipes thus far but so far, love it! the photos make me want to try everything. The only downfall may be some of the ingredients are not available at a standard grocery store(a problem for people like me who live in a small town!)

I'm glad I didn't pay much for this book. The recipes call for ingredients I would never have on hand, and wouldn't bother buying. I was very disappointed with this.

HASH(0xa36e0b70) out of 5 stars Sample Pages are deceiving Dec 6 2012
By Dez - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First off: the pictures are amazing and the recipes really look good... BUT

The sample pages available for view before purchase are really deceiving. The ingredients were simple and widely available. Not the case with the rest of the book. Once we received the book we were disappointed to find expensive and hard to find ingredients for Minnesota at least. Many ingredients we wouldn't cook with like Sea Urchins, Squid, and Octopus.

My wife got excited about the book when she saw Tyler on "The View". She immediately went here to look at the book's sample pages and found the recipes included simple and fresh ingredients.

We're returning the book because it's largely unusable for us due to the more expensive and for our location, we wouldn't be able to find them fresh (having been previously frozen for shipping).

HASH(0xa36e0dbc) out of 5 stars This Isn't Your Mother's Tyler Florence Dec 9 2012
By Andrew G - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Tyler's Real Kitchen was my very first cookbook, received long before I ever knew how to cook. I've been with him ever since, skipping only the baby food cookbooks for which I have no need.

The latest in the TF installments, Fresh, is what I would consider an evolution of Tyler's cooking. Yet despite the minimal presentation, newer cooking techniques and ingredients (some of which you will need to Google), what remains is classic Tyler Florence -- simple ingredients, fantastic and bold flavors, and perfect execution. Some will be turned off by some of the techniques in Fresh -- such as Sous-vide (cooking in a vacuum-sealed bag in a low, constant temperature for a long time) -- but for those who appreciate Tyler's style, this is a fantastic and welcome cookbook. Many of the recipes will challenge you as a home chef, but trust me these recipes are WORTH IT. For those less adventurous, you'll still find recipes that are simple but will make you feel like a rock star in the kitchen (herb-roasted pork loin with bananas, charred onion and herb aioli anyone?).

No, this isn't the Tyler Florence you grew up with. But he's one I sure as hell want to cook with going forward.

Do yourself a favor and buy this cookbook.

HASH(0xa36e4018) out of 5 stars Different March 27 2013
By Fiction Fan - Published on
Format: Hardcover
That is Tyler on the cover, but what a difference location and a few years make. I have been an avid fan and collector of Tyler's eclectic style of cooking for years. He embraces every experience and adds it to his own southern roots family heritage. He skillfully incorporates all his China Town, Italian, and "Utimate" influences, along with fresh, sustainable, accessible ingredients into his recipes and cook books to provide the common masses with the ability to make "eating well" easily achievable.
Where "Fresh" has an inspiring and far-reaching concept, it wasn't particularly clear to me what food choices possible on a national level would more quickly benefit the fish population and change fishing techniques. The content is disappointingly out of character, missing Tyler's beloved down-home family voice and manner, economically unrealistic for the majority of the country's households, insubstantial as an every day, go-to meal inspiration for a hungry family, and too froufrou for frugal meal budgets and time-slots. I love the concept of making food choices that aggressively regenerate and preserve our ecosystems, in addition to healthy, chemical and additive-free, environmentally sustainable ingredients. Of course, I want my food to look good and be healthy and filling to keep my family well fed. An overwhelming majority of people are experiencing painful need and hunger in this land of wealth and plenty. This cook book is absolutely beautiful, well-planned and laid out in a sensible, organized manner. The recipes are fresh and definite showstoppers. It is, however, far removed from Tyler's more practical, homestyle, unpretentious, yet equally healthy, innovative, and sustainable cook books. "Fresh" is well suited to Uberchefs, couples with a chef, or those with minimalist gourmet budgets. I have decided to keep the book as it, thus far, completes my collection. Otherwise, it is virtually useless to me and my family. I am anxiously awaiting an imminent revival of Tyler's formerly beloved genius and unspoiled style that has earned him the respect and admiration of this country and the world.
With the utmost love and respect

HASH(0xa36e4378) out of 5 stars Not user friendly for casual cooks April 8 2013
By G. Uhl - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My mother specifically asked me to buy her this cookbook for Christmas after she saw Tyler talking about it on TV. She watches cooking shows and baseball and that's it.

She did not like the book at all. It was way to 'fancy' for her. She feels intimidated by many of the ingredients.

HASH(0xa36e412c) out of 5 stars Not For Everyone Dec 21 2013
By Jr. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I don't know what Tyler had in mind, but this book is not intended for Home cooks. This is more for chefs. I plan on going into culinary, but it would've been nice if Florence made it clear that this book is under the aspect of professional cooking. The recipes are not relatable. I mean, where in the world am I going to find quail eggs? Seriously. And will the recipe be worth the bother of ordering the majority of these ingredients online? It should be pointed out that this book is aimed for chefs and culinary artists.
