Cooking with the Masterchef: Food for Your Family & Friends Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michel Roux has a justifiable reputation as someone who knows everything there is to know about food, how it should taste, and how it should be cooked. He is very serious-minded about cooking, and his masterly performances on MasterChef have created a wide and admiring fan base. MasterChef shows cooking how it should be and is very good at showing the passion and skills required in becoming a chef. For food has always been at the forefront of his life, and the recipes in this book are a distillation of his vast knowledge and experience, made available to the home cook.

Review:

"Roux (A Life in the Kitchen) returns with new favorites he ostensibly whips up at home. Comfort foods like Onion Soup with Cider and Calvados and Pork Shoulder Stew with Potatoes and Chorizo Sausage help make that case, and a well-rounded collection ensures there are dishes for all tastes — but certainly not all skill levels. Most recipes have no introduction or photos, forcing readers to imagine what to expect when preparing and serving, for instance, a Souffle Suissesse. Adding difficulty is a European perspective, with metric measurements (a conversion table is included), and ingredients like swede, brique pastry, milk powder, and so on. Then there's Roux's pickiness; the chicken, in different recipes, should be corn-fed, organic, free range, or just 'small.' And Watercress and Pear Salad calls for 'scented' honey, Haunch of Venison with Lemon and Honey calls for 'clear honey,' and Roast Chicken Salad calls for plain old honey. Those that can get a grip on the dishes will still have their work (and sourcing) cut out for them if they attempt fare like the epic Leg of Lamb Cooked for Seven Hours. Serious cooks and professional chefs will find inspiration (Roux's collection is indeed impressive) but his clipped instructions and esoteric ingredients may frustrate novices. (Mar.)"
