Product Description

From the Back Cover

Signature Recipes  Surreal presentations, unconventional cooking methods, and bold flavor combinations—Bob’s trademark recipes are all here in this best-of collection (including many that have never appeared in print before). Most are simple enough to be incorporated into any cooking repertoire yet are so addictive that you’ll want to make them over and over again.
Surreal Etiquette  Dysfunctional kitchens, mismatched cutlery, and culinary faux pas are no match for Bob’s confidence-inspiring tips. Learn how to set up a highly functioning workspace and host unforgettable dinner parties, all the while flying in the face of convention.
Epic Stories  Jaw-dropping narratives of taking North America by storm in a Toastermobile, harvesting grapes at a legendary Burgundian winery, and inadvertently lighting a guest on fire during an Australian TV appearance all chronicle this adrenaline junkie’s voracious appetite for adventure.

“If Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, and Salvador Dalí had a ménage à trois, this would be their love child.” —Steve Perrine, Men’s Health

HASH(0x9d814a08) out of 5 stars A+++ You have to own it! And, you'll Use it! Nov. 3 2010
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
You'll laugh, you'll salivate, you'll be amazed...but mostly you'll get hungry reading through all the playful and delicious recipes. Especially since the recipes are illustrated with some of the most gorgeous food photography in the biz. Once you've satisfied the hunger with one of Bob's signature recipes, you'll be able to relax and read the great advice that he gives on every page. The best thing about this "best of bob" cookbook is that every recipe is straight forward, the instructions are direct and easy to follow and the results are spectacular. There is a surreal presentation for a number of the recipes, particularly the early recipes, but it's not really about the presentation, it's really about the food!! This is one cookbook that you will use over and over again. And, Bob won't mind a bit when you take your happy applause from your dinner guests who are blown away by your culinary creations! Buy one for yourself and all your favorite foodie friends! And, by the way, even though Bob is a good friend and co-wrote Pizza on the Grill with me, those facts have no bearing on what I think of his latest tome!
HASH(0x9d814b94) out of 5 stars Surreal cooking and a Toaster mobile Dec 4 2010
By wogan - Published on
Format: Paperback
Bob Blumer is an eccentric cook, which makes for a different cookbook; but it is fun, cheerful and interesting. It is not just recipes. He tells the story of his Toaster mobile and some of its and his adventures; picking grapes in France breaking Guinness records. There are many colour pictures included as well as an index.
He gives really good solid advice, filled with common sense but again in a fun spirit
Included is setting up your kitchen and preparing for a party. The recipe sections include: cocktail bites (Bee stings are not to be missed and are pretty simple), soups and salads, stovetop recipes, BBQ, (including pizza), desserts, breakfasts and his surreal food- lamb that looks like a cupcake and meatloaf that looks like carrot cake (that is very good and not that hard to prepare). Recipes range from the simple to complicated.
A tutorial on making Caesar salad and 20 ways to avoid making dessert are incorporated - which suggests among other things, to serve penny candy. Who wouldn't love that

This is a different type of cookbook, out of the ordinary, not for a beginning cook, unless they really want to be adventurous; but for anyone who enjoys food, has fun with it and wants to try something unusual.
