    1-0 out of 5 stars Erratic, boring and without passion
    This book reads like a term paper written by an overly diligent student who's not really interested in his subject. The author erratically jumps from one topic to another to demonstrate that he has really done lots and lots of research.
    2-0 out of 5 stars Same story, different book.
    I love to read narrative books on food.I also love to read cookbooks.But to me, this book is too similar to the more entertaining "Kitchen Confidential."I have no problem with the actual writing of the book, Buford is a great an enthusiastic guide to the inner workings of a kitchen.But I am tired of reading about how hellish and stressful it is to work in a restaurant kitchen, and glorifying the macho boys club of the professional culinary world.Yes, we get it, it's not really all that glamorous to work in a restaurant day in and day out. If you have never read a book like this and are infatuated with Mario Batali, I say go ahead and read it, but if you have read "Kitchen Confidential," there's not much new here.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Armchair Sous Chef
    Having spent hours watching the Food Channel:Iron Chef America, Throwdown and even Rachael Ray, one always thinks that it doesn't look so hard...that is until you try to accomplish medium dice of anything with a consistent size.Somehow anything I chop looks as even as if I had done it in a food processor.So why don't I use one you ask??Because they don't on Iron Chef America, they slice and dice with ease.

    As a gradaute of the CIA we had to carry the CIA Pro 7 to some of our classes and it was awesome thinking it could not get any bigger or have more information - BUT Pro 8 is the heaviest book ever published.This book is big and it includes a lot of updates from 7, easier methods and it looks like many of the recipes we did in the kitchens - A great resource to everyone and an even better one for CIA grads who can find pics of some of the old pros in them - Martinni, Matel and Andrienni were three I had and there they were playing in front of the camera - you guys really do have a good side no that the book is published - GET BACK TO WORK! - Great book CIA - congrats! ...

    Editorial Review

    On any given day, one out of four Americans opts for a quick and cheap meal at a fast-food restaurant, without giving either its speed or its thriftiness a second thought. Fast food is so ubiquitous that it now seems as American, and harmless, as apple pie. But the industry's drive for consolidation, homogenization, and speed has radically transformed America's diet, landscape, economy, and workforce, often in insidiously destructive ways. Eric Schlosser, an award-winning journalist, opens his ambitious and ultimately devastating exposé with an introduction to the iconoclasts and high school dropouts, such as Harlan Sanders and the McDonald brothers, who first applied the principles of a factory assembly line to a commercial kitchen. Quickly, however, he moves behind the counter with the overworked and underpaid teenage workers, onto the factory farms where the potatoes and beef are grown, and into the slaughterhouses run by giant meatpacking corporations. Schlosser wants you to know why those French fries taste so good (with a visit to the world's largest flavor company) and "what really lurks between those sesame-seed buns." Eater beware: forget your concerns about cholesterol, there is--literally--feces in your meat. Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to get lost
    If you like fact reading, you'll like this.I thought he was to discriptive and went on and on and on about nonsense. Some of the info was really good, but it was hard to stay focused and really take it all in.I found my mind wondering and thinking about other things.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Like a guilty little trip to the corner Mickey D's
    Eric Schlosser's "Fast Food Nation" is a thorough if somewhat slanted analysis of the fast food industry.The author hooks the reader early with sweeping invectives against the titans of fast food.Before you can say "Supersize Me," you've learned that Ray Kroc and his cronies are responsible for the homogenization of global culture, the spread of E. coli and other deadly pathogens, the obesity of America's children, and the exploitation of the unskilled masses.Take a deep breath - that's just the intro.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Top-notch Journalism
    The author brings a high level of professionalism to his story about the growth of the fast food industry and the consequences of its ruthless pursuit of profits.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I liked it
    I had to buy this book for my Quantity Foods course as a part of my Dietetics major. I actually liked the book, and I am going to keep it for later use. I thought the book was organized very well. Some of the charts in Chapter 2 and 5 that we used quite often were a little hard to find (because there are so many!).
    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!!! A must have for all chefs
    I had seen this book at a friends business and thought it was good.Since I have ordered and received it I have had the chance to really review the contents and find it one book that I can use daily.The CD rom is also fantastic in the number of recipes it contains.One nice feature is that you can size the recipes to what you need.Another great plus.Well worth the money.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Essential of Food Safety & Sanitation
    I am using your textbook for a class I teach for the Oklahoma City/County Health Department.I Love It!The class I teach is the Food Service Operator's Certification Course that is required by all food service operators in this county. I am a Registered Dietitian who is contracted by Oklahoma State University-OKC and Francis Tuttle to teach the class for the health department. It is kind of a community service offered by the two schools. I have only been teaching the class for three years now, and by far your book is the best. 5-0 out of 5 stars Meets the training needs for Food Handlers
    As an instructor who teaches Food Safety classes to front-line employees, I find this text an excellent resource. It is comprehensive yet still easy-to-understand, a difficult combination to achieve for some of the technical aspects of foodborne illness, pathogens, etc. The cartoon-style drawings add to the enjoyment. I have had many trainees who share these positive comments. Only negative comment would be to include color photos instead of the old, grainy B&W.5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent food safety training resource
    Essentials of Food Safety & Sanitation is a comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide to help food workers produce safe food. In my job as editor of a food safety-oriented newsletter, I review and have access toa lot of training materials, but "Essentials" is the one I referto the most for current, reliable information. ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars great ideas not so great tasting
    While I enjoyed the book's concepts and found the recipes and preperation easy to follow I found that the recipes are not so tasty.Several of them were just too repetitive and not something I would enjoy eating day in and day out.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
    I have read other Once a Month Cooking books and this is by far the best that I have encountered. Each recipe is on its own page, andthe ingredients and amounts are clearly listed in a grid format (for 6, 12, on up, servings) with cooking instructions, packaging suggestions and ways to cut the fat content. The website has even more recipes in this same format that you can download. If you wanted to, you could have the book's spine removed, have it 3-hole punched and create your own recipe binder, inserting whatever downloaded recipes you desire.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good techniques, less than stellar recipes
    First the good- I like the format, the technique works well, and I enjoyed making a lot of recipes for my small family that I could serve and store. I liked being able to grab additional recipes off the internet site.

    As a culinary educator, I find this book both informative and user-friendly.The Excel spreadsheets and "Fun on the Web" exercises add interesting and useful technological components.The text gets to the point on all issues without belaboring the theoretical aspects of food and beverage cost controls.The book covers junior and senior level concepts in a readable format suitable for freshmen and sophomores.It is a book for all levels with real life examples.I would recommend it to anyone, be it from education or industry.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent edition!
    This book is a must-read for any foodservice manager who is interested in an accurate, to the point, and technologically advanced review of food and beverage cost control methods. Controlling labor and food costs have never been more important than in today's environment. Those managers who master control procedures will succeed, and this book helps them to do just that.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great source for appetizers and a nice read. Buy It.
    `Big Small Plates' by northern California restauranteur / chef / cookbook writer, Cindy Pawlcyn, assisted by her restaurant co-owners and co-chefs, brothers Pablo Jacinto and Erasto Jacinto needs just a little explanation on its title and contents. The contradiction in the `Big Small' is explained by substituting `seriously delicious' for `Big' and `appetizers' or `hors `d'ourves' for `Small'. `Plates' obviously doesn't mean crockery, it meats a dish of food.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The New Professional Chef Scores a 10
    As a professional chef myself and a graduate of the California Culinary Academy, I keep 2 copies of this incredibly wonderful cookbook.4-0 out of 5 stars Impressive
    Not being a professional chef, this book was quite intimidating.The info regarding ingredients was great, and the recipes so far have not let me down.This is a great aid in helping a normal guy like me prepare a very nice meal for company the RIGHT way.A great appreciation for fine cooking is developed after studying this book.The ingredient measurements in weight were a bit of a stumbling block for me at first - if you don't have a scale, you had better be an excellent guesser.Overestimating and buying too much veal loin can be pretty expensive.This is THE book for basics and, of course, a fine meal for that special occasion when company is planned (most meals here require several steps and multiple sub-recipes, and are not fast, Betty Crocker projects).Well worth the price for the smile on your guests' faces. ...

    I am really pleased with the book i purchased. I needed to find the book fast for my class because it was the middle of week one and i had no book because the college bookstore was sold out. So, i tried online to find the best rates with fast delievery and found it here at Amazon.com. Wooo! I was so happy to have found the book i needed onine with the Scantron Certificatiion Exam form included. I was in the need for next day delievery and they had that option available. My total came out to $93.83 with next day shipping fee included. That was a pretty reasonable price for me compared to other prices i've seen which would have been way over $100 dollars. I am very happy with the book and with the speedy next day delivery and also with how Amazon.com kept sending me confirmation emails and how i could tract my shipment order. I was very much pleased, which moves me to trust them and to purchase from them again in the future!Thanks Thanks Thanks Amazon.com! ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
    Sorry guys, I looked forward to working on recipes from this cookbook due to the very enthusiastic reception it received from the media.The graphics of the book are truly beautiful.The recipes however, hmmm,try again.I followed a simple recipe for Apple Crisp and got a bad result.I now go to respected standard cookbooks for my Apple Crisp recipe and the old family favorite always turns out great.Really people, the recipes are NOT the stuff of greatness.Graphics? Great. Photography? Great?Recipes? You have got to be kidding
    5-0 out of 5 stars This cook book is awesome
    I agree, if you own just one cookbook, this is the one. It has the best recipe ever for Potroast and cranberry bread. I'm finally beginning to explore other recipes b/c these two have been so good and I'm not the adventuresome type. I'm dieing to try the gorgonzola cheese tortellini as well as a few others. These women are awesome!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read, even if I was mentioned in the book!
    The class that Michael speaks about with the career change students was mine.He strolls in I think on Day 2 of K-18 with Chef Theo Roe.We were told about him coming and being an active participant in our class but mostly would stay out of the way and ask questions for an up coming project.He hung with us for a couple of days and we all enjoyed sitting around the dinner table talking about ourselves and he enlightening us with his journey and interaction with Chef Pardus, who at the time we were not assigned but did eventially get him.He stayed in touch with me mostly wanting updates of my CIA class clear through graduation.I see him on tv now with the likes of Anthony Bourdain, Tom Keller and his own show.This book, if you read the first one, goes to show how deep food cuts into the "Soul of a Chef."He has written other things, pediatric surgery with his sister the surgeon, wooden boats and he always comes back to food.He cretainly has my diagnosis of Soul of a Chef.Thanks Michael for 1st of all putting my name in the book, but also brining to light the CIA in the time I went through. It was a wonderful time in my life and I know the others felt the same.Good luck and buy this book if you are reading this review!Reach of a Chef - Buy It!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Chefs, Pop Culture and Very Well Done!
    Mr. Ruhlman gives us another perfectly plated culinary tome with his entertaining look inside the world of the celebrity chef phenomenon in America.With his usual quirky humor he examines all sides of the 'Pop Culture of Cooking' and what forces make or break chefs in becoming, not just household names, but brands unto themselves.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A Foodie's Delight in Profiling the Recent Evolution of the Celebrity Chef
    As the co-writer of the bellwether of gourmet culinary tomes, "The French Laundry Cookbook", author Michael Ruhlman has written an eminently readable book that should satisfy any foodie. His focus is rife with possibilities as he explores the development of the celebrity chef. What Ruhlman gleans with carefully gathered insider knowledge is the advent of the chef as an entrepreneur rather than an artisan, a trend that has been discernible for the past decade. This has a lot to do with the success of the Food Network and related lifestyle programming, but also playing significant roles are writers such as Ruhlman and Anthony Bourdain and the simple fact that perceived exotic ingredients are now available at local supermarkets.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Cool Gift
    This book quite good or so dare I say. I was educated on several aspects of cooking and cutting that I took for granted and was unaware off. It gives you just enough information to be dangerous. In truth, it is a fun book and it has helped me prepare some clever dishes. This book was given to me as a gift and it definitely is cool to be sure.

    4-0 out of 5 stars I Like this Book
    I found this book to be quite good. I learned a few things that I did not know. It gives you just enough information to be dangerous. Really, it is a fun book and it has helped me prepare some neat dishes. I found this book to be a very cool gift that was given to me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book about knife skills for the serious cook
    A serious home cook that has spent the last 25 years polishing her cooking skills writes this review.I purchased this book as a supplement to "The Professional Chef:7th edition" and I very glad that I did not listen to the spotlight review that said it was a duplicate.This book is clearly NOT a duplicate of the information in "The Professional Chef".
