5.0 out of 5 stars Great Halibut Recipe!! Aug. 15 2010
By btrail - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The Halibut recipe in this book is absolutely wonderful! It is very easy to follow and uses ingredients that are already stocked in my kitchen. Great for a quick meal during the week; the family thought I really spent a lot of time on it. The most important thing about this recipe and other recipes in the book is that it is very health conscience. Recipes are low fat, quick and best of all -GREAT TASTING! Cat Cora is now my favorite chef!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cat Cora Helps Family Cooks Take Taste up a Notch March 10 2011
By Tracy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Cat Cora is well known from her status as an Iron Chef, a show that compels chefs to take unusual ingredients and combine them to create show-stopping dishes. Although it is entertaining to watch, it is far from the type of cooking that most people do in their homes. In this cookbook we see another side of Cat, a person who cooks for a family day in and day out.

As in most families, Cat goes to classic favorites over and over, but updates them with new flavors to keep the meals both interesting and family friendly. The end result is recipes that please both adults and children. This is a cookbook that cooks will reach for over and over, virtually cooking their way through from beginning to end. Highlights (so far): Chicken Soup with Coconut, Fresh Basil and Chiles, which is great paired with Cilantro Slaw with Sauteed Garlic; and Sweet Potato Clam Chowder with Bacon, served with Corn Bread. Best of all, Cat shows cooks that they can take steps to update their own families' favorites and make them new and fresh.

We use this cookbook every week. Most of the ingredients are easy to find and inexpensive. Many of the recipes have 30-45 minute prep times.

5.0 out of 5 stars This master chef offers different takes on favorite 'comfort food' dishes Sept. 17 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Cat Cora is best known to the general public as one of the 'Iron Chefs' on what is perhaps television's most popular cooking shows. Now in Cat Cora's Classics With a Twist, this master chef offers different takes on favorite 'comfort food' dishes, and tells how to present casual fare that looks as if one has spent hours on it. Fast, healthy meals with inspiration were dishes Cat put together after work for her own large family, so they not only look pretty, but appeal to practical cooks.
