Product Description

Review

 "Kitchen tips are embedded in every one of the 100 recipes, which are accompanied by high quality color photographs of the final dishes. It’ll be difficult to decide what to cook and serve...Throughout the collection, Smith emphasizes fresh ingredients and less-involved techniques, plus a flavor-centric approach to ensure the best results."
Booklist

“Chef Michael Smith’s Kitchen is a great addition to any cookbook collection, especially right now, because it’s heavy on the warm and healthy comfort food that won’t take you all day to make."
-- The National Post

“The most notable thing about this book is the discovery that Smith Force can inhabit both paper as well as your TV… What I’m talking about, of course, is that tranquil timbre with which he narrates his cooking, the calm, towering presence, the ease with which he culls up a lovin’ dish and those smiling eyes that look at you straight through the screen and say, hey friend, you certainly can do this!  Well, I’m excited to report that The Best of Chef at Home is full of Smith Force.”
-- Food Network

“Michael Smith’s relaxed approach to cooking has made him a Food Network favorite…”
-- The Globe and Mail

“Chef Michael Smith’s Kitchen promises to deliver the same welcoming approach to a great meal without much fuss. The selection of recipes includes his favorites, ones that he cooks regularly at home. The best part of the cookbook might be that each recipe has a drool-inducing photo to help visualize the end result.”
--Vines Magazine

“Extolling the virtues of simple, clean food, Smith presents recipes versatile and interesting enough to be considered weekday night fare as well as entertaining friends and family."
-- The Cookbook Store

“I started out appreciating Michael Smith, however after going through this cookbook and trying several of the recipes, I am definitely now a full-fledged fan of Michael Smith…I now regularly reference this book when I’m planning out our family’s meals…If you are looking for a great overall cookbook that covers all facets of the meal, then this is the book for you. It’s easy to follow and helps you feel confident in the kitchen.”
-- TheDaringKitchen.com --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This is my first time buying a Chef Michael Smith's book and I can only say that I love it! I have cooked so far 1/3 of the recipes and I am getting amazing reviews from my family. The flavour'combination, textures, everything tastes so good and delicious and I have 3 children (age 7, 3 and 1) so, a very picky crowd! I would highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
Let's start off with the fact that I don't enjoy cooking. So when I heard about Michael Smith's 100 of My Favorite Easy Recipes, the key word here is "easy." I have tried 4 of the recipes so far and I love them. Not all of them came out perfect the first time, but I know what to do next time (reading and paying attention helps). The recipes are not too complicated to follow, there are not too many ingredients and you don't need a lot of skills. You can feel his passion for making food and sharing it with company through his hints and comments. If you are not fond of cooking, you will enjoy this book. I am actually looking forward to making more meals with this book.

I love cooking/experimenting and was hoping that Smith's book would provide me with some new ideas and tricks to try. I got just what I wanted! His recipes have lots of easily accessible whole foods which I have used verbatim or modified for my own tastes with great success. The from-scratch rib sauce recipe got rave reviews from my company last night, and I can't wait to make the blueberry muffins again. I would recommend this book for someone who doesn't need a lot of detailed instruction but rather a reminder of the variety of foods we can easily make for ourselves.

We've had the opportunity to try many recipes from Michael's book. They are simple and delicious and not to mention nutritious. I knew this would be a good purchase and so far I've been proven right.

Every recipe I have tried is unique and delicious. Favourites so far include Italian-style meatloaf with olives and sundried tomatoes which is a wonderful twist on a classic, and honey mustard ribs which have a tangy, quick to make sauce. The recipes are easy to follow and full of easy tips and substitutions, for example, for the ribs, he includes a tip for folding two pieces of foil together to make a better seal if your foil is not big enough to fit your pan. Lots of nice pictures, and a well-organized index as well!

Unpretentious, passionate and talented, he depicts cooking as a relaxing, creative pursuit and inspires confidence in his viewers. In his new book, Smith translates his on-air philosophy into simple but delicious and fresh recipes that readers can easily modify as desired.

Containing 100 recipes will full page photos, the book feels like the perfect length - not encyclopedic but both satisfying and wide-ranging. From Oatmeal Crusted French Toast to Honey Mustard Barbecue Ribs to Pan-Seared Scallops to an array of vegetables, grains and side dishes, "Chef Michael Smith's Kitchen" suits every taste. And yes, it even includes Smith's most famous dessert: Iron Chef Strawberry Shortcake!
