To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am English but no one does breakfast like the Americans, especially the Deep South. I searched specifically for an awesome Deep South breakfast cook book and I found it! It has some amazing recipes and I am thrilled with this book. I love the descriptions, the stories, the pictures, and the instructions are very clear. The only thing which bothers me is that it's all in imperial measurements, but I can easily buy a conversion chart to stick on the fridge or whatever.
This is a terrific breakfast cookbook. A delightful read with lots of anecdotes and some great recipes: my kind of cookbook. Beard-award-winning Chef Currence covers all of the bases, and the vast majority of the recipes are accessible for the home cook. Some of them may be a bit too big for most of us: for example, 6 # of chicken sausage, 5# of breakfast sausage, or 7 1/2 cups of flour to make honey buns. The author does not offer suggestions for breaking down his recipes. Still, I've found plenty of recipes that I'm dying to make, including upping my biscuit game. Loved his story about his prized-but-lost beloved biscuit cutter. Loved his writing about shrimp and grits. You'll also find kid-friendly recipes, not just pancakes, but also "pop tarts." I watched Chef Currence on "Top Chef Masters" and did enjoy his sly wit. As for the profanity, I have purchased every season of Top Chef/Top Chef Masters via Amazon, and I watch them over and over while I spend hours in the kitchen cooking. I also watch other Food Network and Gordon Ramsay cooking shows. On these shows, chefs speaking on national television are bleeped over and over and over, so I'm used to it. However, if it bothers you, this is not the book for you. Finally, as we all know, some e-books are less accessible than others. However, this one has fully clickable TOC and index, and clickable embedded recipes, and most of the recipes are accompanied by color photos.
As a cookbook, this is fantastic. The recipes are delicious and creative, taking breakfast (or any meal) to another level. However, I find the book too heavy on personal anecdotes, name-dropping, and profanity. A chef including stories about themselves and/or their recipes can often make their book more relatable, even charming. This guy bragging about hanging out with 'Dave Chang' after his book party was not relatable and his constantly dropping f-bombs (especially in reference to his daughter) was definitely not charming. Five stars for the recipes, zero stars for everything else in this book.
great book for breakfast recipes. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and this book hits home on so many levels. I am a huge fan of the Chorizo Migas and southwest seasoning recipes. I made this and took it to work one day and everyone couldn't believe how good it was.
As far as kindle cookbooks go, this one is actually well done. Of course BBB is fabulous and the book is well written but this review is more important for folks to know that even if using the iPhone kindle app, the book works well
