Review by Jay Is In The Kitchen.
I am giddy with Joy , now that I have my hands on Jennifer Segal’s new cookbook called
‘Once Upon A Chef Weeknight Weekend’
My Cook Book Club spent 3 months cooking and reviewing from her first cookbook a few years ago. It remains one of our top picks and we have all been waiting for this new Cookbook.

I was lucky enough to be a recipe tester for Jennifer’s new cookbook. I was honored to have been part of that process.
As you can see in typical ‘Jay style’ I have marked up the book with stickies and I am ready to go deep into this new book.

Once Upon A Chef website is one of the best food websites on the internet. The blog and newsletters that appear in my in box are a joy to open. My husbands enjoys them as well and seems to mention the recipes on a regular basis.

Jennifer Segal has really given us a format that we can all appreciate with this new cookbook. We have 70 quick fix recipes for weeknight dinners and 30 luscious Weekend recipes.
I really appreciate this format and I know the so many working woman/men and Mums\Dads will as well.

Being as so I have already tested so many of these recipes I am confident in suggesting that this book is another 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Cookbook by Jennifer Segal
