Product description

Review

"I can only think of one thing better than enjoying Alex Guarnaschelli's food in one of her restaurants . . . cooking Alex Guarnaschelli's food in your own kitchen, preferably while wearing pajamas."
--Alton Brown

"Some of my best recipes are from Alex, who has taught me a lot about cooking just by being my friend. Reading her book is just like hanging out with your best friend in the kitchen."
--Isaac Mizrahi

"I really have had a good time watching Alex graduate from a young line cook at my restaurant to the soulful and successful chef she is today. Her book's approach to simple home recipes has many restaurant tricks that I am sure inspired cooks will be happy to discover."
--Daniel Boulud

"Alex Guarnaschelli, who rightfully won her chops working with the great names in cuisine on both sides of the Atlantic, brings her skills to real-world food. This is where most of us live with our tight schedules, hungry families, and a yen for something really good at the end of the day. Alex lives there, too, but she has the solutions. This is one of those books destined to become very messy."
--Lynne Rossetto Kasper, Host of The Splendid Table(R) from American Public Media

"Alex Guarnaschelli is a brilliantly talented cook and this book makes me want to throw on my apron on a Sunday afternoon and start cooking for my family!"
--Anne Burrell --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
