First and foremost, this cookbook is affordable. Unlike many celebrity chef cookbooks which ring in at $30.00 plus dollars and oftentimes seem more about form than substance, Chef Tila has given us the opposite. An affordable $15.00-$20.00 cookbook full of substance and not lacking in form. The book is pretty but it is functional.
The recipes are formatted very clearly. The top of the page contains a paragraph about the recipe. Ingredients are listed on the left given in US measurements and metric where practical. Number of servings per recipe is also included. To the right are the step by step instructions. Each recipe contains a 'chef tip'.
The 'chef tips', for me, are the best part of this book. That's not to say that the rest of the book isn't good, it's great. The chef tips help to take this book ahead of the pack. I will admit that I knew most of these tips either from culinary school or from 50 odd years of cooking. That doesn't make them less great. Many people don't go to school or grow up the oldest of seven children, having to cook daily to help their mother. The tips alone are worth the price of admission.
The recipes are written clearly and oftentimes in an easy flowing, personable style. There are very few exotic ingredients and where they appear, substitutions can be made. There are very few nested recipes, which makes the production of a dish very simple. (Nested recipes can be quite confusing if a recipe contains many of them, as in some baking books.) The dishes ARE classics for the most part and the experienced cook can use them as jumping off points for the creation of new ones.
There is a reason Jet and Ali Tila have such a loyal fan base. They take the time to teach. They don't just spew out recipes from their ivory tower of the celebrity kitchen. They are both very active on social media and are responsive to their followers. They are patient. I highly recommend this book for beginners and experienced cooks alike. #TeamTila
When it came, I poured over the recipes and picked some to try right away. I also really like the beginning of the book because it has a wealth of instruction.
I just made "Ready-When-You-Are Braised Beef Short Ribs on page 25 tonight and they were pure fall-apart delicious, there were no leftovers! Can't wait to try more recipes.
