This wonderful cookbook is the result of the 10 years of cooking classes that I taught, plus my vast knowledge of the culinary arts that I acquired through working as an Executive Chef. All of the recipes are easy to use and result in great food. I tell you a little history of each recipe, and what type of class it was created for. I taught a variety of classes including baking and pastry classes and many of those recipes are in this book. At the end of many of the recipes, I've included notes that may give the reader information on certain ingredients, or tell them how to prepare part or all, of the recipe in advance. This book also has a Tip and Advice section that touches on some important aspects of cooking.
I tested all of the recipes in this book before conducting the classes that they were featured in. In addition, many class participants went home and made the recipes and reported how the food turned out, so I know that these recipes are great and really work! This is so important as it seems that there are a lot of cookbooks out there where the recipes are not tested before hand. To this day, I use these recipes at home because the resulting dishes are so tasty.
This is a book that can be used for everyday food and also for special occasion dishes. It has quite a few healthy recipes too. As I am a chef and a registered dietitian, I was called on to teach a lot of classes featuring healthy foods, so I have included those recipes as well. I have made the recipes simple and have not used any hard-to-find ingredients. I really want people to enjoy reading this book and using it a lot.
