The Lazy Gourmet - 2012 Gift Guide

The Lazy Gourmet by Robin Donovan & Juliana Gallin

About The Book:
The Lazy Gourmet is for anyone who dreams of dazzling guests with fabulous home-cooked fare, but fears that such a feat would require Thomas Keller’s talent, Martha Stewart’s ingenuity, Gandhi’s patience, and Charles Manson’s free time. The goal of The Lazy Gourmet is to conquer the misguided belief that preparing an elegant meal requires spending hours - or days - in the kitchen. With the help of an army of volunteer testers - regular people with no culinary training - Robin Donovan and Juliana Gallin developed this collection of recipes that can be prepared using readily available ingredients and common kitchen appliances, and without any previous cooking experience or training. With our recipes, anyone can prepare delicious and sophisticated, yet surprisingly simple dishes that will impress fussy in-laws, placate implacable bosses, and seduce sexy strangers through the proven method of knocking their socks off at the dinner table. As the lazy gourmets themselves like to say, “Cooking a great meal can be just as easy as cooking a crappy meal!” So relax! Stop fretting over elaborate recipes and cumbersome techniques and start cooking the Lazy Gourmet way.

My Thoughts:
I like the recipes in this book, and it is easy. I don't need to go buy weird utensils or spices I have never heard of.  It is all basically stuff I normally buy or already have in my kitchen! Easy meals, and they turned out good. And believe me, I am no chef! Easy to follow and understand! A nice addition to any food-lovers recipe books!

Buy this book at The Lazy Gourment on Amazon.
I received a complimentary review copy of this book from Cleis Press in exchange for a review on my blog. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
