a cook book worth buying--lots of recipes, many of them easy to prepare. The book is also well-edited, which you can't take for granted in a cook book!

I really enjoyed this - recipes are really easy to do and so far delicious. I think that meals top notch chefs cook for their restaurant families are recipes worth trying. I tried the fettuccine with tuna and it was great. I never could have imagined something made with canned tuna could be that delicious (of course, I used good imported tuna, not St*rkist {sorry, Charlie}). Next I want to try Old Sober and Mise En Place Ramen.

Off the Menu: Staff Meals from America's Top Restaurants by Marissa Guggiana is filled with amazing recipes that people actually want to eat. I can't tell you how hungry I am from reading this. So many amazing comfort food recipes with a gourmet twist. Holy YUM!
Interesting look behind the scenes of restaurants across the county. I enjoyed the chef interviews and will hold on to this book to use as a reference for places to try if I visit any of the cities noted

A book that I paged through , but never had a chance to read yet.
Marissa is a great lady and author.
Interesting look at what chefs make for their staff, but not a cookbook I would keep on the shelf
