    1. Todd English has a great collection of recipes here - sophisticated Mediterranean dishes that takes home cooking to a higher level with refined ingredients. It's a book I treasure as it's personally addressed to me and signed by the Chef himself when I met him!

    2. This is not for vegetarians or people monitoring their cholesterol. It can also be expensive to make. However, for a special meal may I suggest Pan-Roasted Rib Eye with Gorgonzola Vidalia Onions. Oh so worth the effort!

    3. The restaurant is really nice and innovative, and if you want to recapture some of that food, this is a good cookbook but I have found it to be too ecclectic and therefore not the first thin Ireach for when I want to cook something new that I haven't tried before

    4. These recipes are a little bit complicated and time consuming, but they're not actually that difficult. And the results are Sooooo tasty. My favorite section is the risotto dishes.

    5. I took this book out of the library, read it and immediately ordered it from Half for my bookshelf. Chef English has some VERY amazing recipes to share.
