100 all-new recipes from the favorite Top Chef All-Stars winner and Top Chef judge and Food Network regular

Fans know Richard Blais best as the winner of Bravo's Top Chef All-Stars, the first competitor to be invited back as a permanent judge on Top Chef, and now as a Food Network regular as well. On television, Blais is famous for his daring cooking, making use of science (think liquid nitrogen) to dazzle and impress. But how does he cook at home when the cameras are off? That's what this book will answer, with elevated homestyle recipes and personal stories which invite you behind the scenes and into his own kitchen for the first time. Some recipes might look familiar, like spaghetti and meatballs, but have a secret, flavor-boosting ingredient, and others feature clever but unexpected techniques, like his fried chicken which is first marinated in pickle juice. These are creative recipes that anyone can make and are sure to excite, from Seabass with Ginger Beer and Bok Choy to Jerked Spatchcock Chicken and Plantains, making this this the book Blais fans have been waiting for.
Perhaps most recognizable as the winner of Bravo's Top Chef All-Stars and now a regular judge on Top Chef, as well as a rotating judge on Fox's hit show Master Chef, RICHARD BLAIS is a successful chef, restaurateur, James Beard Award-nominated cookbook author and television personality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recipes Worth The Effort! In his cookbook “So Good – 100 Recipes From My Kitchen To Yours“, Richard Blais says “So here is a collection of recipes that work at home that you want to prepare time and again. They aren’t restaurant dishes with complicated cooking instructions and tons of garnishes.” Now while I agree that you won’t need a Michelin Star to whip up these recipes but they aren’t exactly entry level either. But who cares, they look like they are worth the effort! When you flip through the recipes you will enjoy a lovely full page for color pictures and lots of little tips or comments about the recipes. The introduction is short and sweet, though I might have liked to find out how he transitioned from McDonalds to cooking school. Categories For Every Need Starters Soups and Porridge Pasta Fish and Seafood Chicken, Turkey, Duck, Goose, Squab (and Rabbit) Beef, Pork, Lamb, and Goat Vegetable On the Side Desserts As previously mentioned, these are not recipes for the new cook. While the detailed instructions are excellent, make sure you read the recipes before you start. A few of the recipes require specialized tools or unusual ingredients not found in every kitchen so you might have to make accommodations. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed this excellent book. Because I can’t resist a good chip, I have chosen the recipe for Triple-Cooked Fries. See the review and recipe at RecipesNow! Reviews and Recipes Magazine.
