I loved this cookbook, and coming on the heels of reviewing a book aimed at feeding men, this one does a far better job of breakfast than that cookbook did, for that target audience. I get new cookbooks out of the library and test drive them at home before making a decision to buy, and already 2 of us think this has great possibilities. The area that is not strong here is muffins and other baked goods--interesting, because I have seen Gale Gand do a lot of desserts on the Food Network. The stren ...more

100 Recipes, made even more tempting by clean photography.

The menu suggestions just before the index are designed for the reader to pull off tasty, impressive 3-6 course brunches (including specialty drinks/smoothies) for a variety of occasions. Were I spending Mother's Day near mine this year, I would absolutely take Gand's suggestions for: Pineapple-Blueberry Smoothie, Apricot Chicken Salad, Asparagus with Poached Eggs and Parmesan, Quick Pear Streusel Coffee Cake (which, by the way, shipped

In short: if you want to buy a brunch cookbook, get Bobby Flay's new cookbook. I felt like a cookbook about brunch would be a nice addition to my collection. A sort of a go-to whenever I feel like hosting a brunch, however, I feel like this is more for people who have no idea what to serve for brunch and never cooked any brunch dishes. I've made my own versions of most of those dishes really well, so this book is completely unnecessary to me.

A superbly written cookbook - with a vast mixture of recipes ranging from simple (smoothies) to complex (home-made pretzels). Lovely, down-to-earth anecdotes prelude each recipe, and gorgeous photos of each finished product show you how it's done. Most meaty dishes are easy to substitute for vegetarian fare, and instructions are clear and precise. Love, love, love this cookbook! and I love brunch!

Looking for a good book to use for our cookbook club brunch I floundered a while until I found this one. This book was everything I was looking for, savory to sweet, simple to complex. I bookmarked half a dozen contenders and made the Torta Rustica for our get together. The recipes are appealing, clearly presented, and accompanied by lovely full-color photos that do much to inspire. I can see myself going back to this book again and gain when in need of brunch recipes. Very happy with it.

So far I have already made two of the recipes in this book and they've both been great. (Buttermilk pancakes and Bacon Scallion Scones). The recipes are complete and informative, with easy to follow instructions. Not every recipe has a photograph but many of them do. It is also a very well rounded cookbook in regards to sweets vs savories and breakfast fare vs lunch. Highly recommended.

Pretty great! It's got the best buttermilk pancake recipe I've tried. The other recipes I've tried out are good as well.

Iced Coffee with Cinnamon-Coffee Ice Cubes, Baked Eggs in Ham Cups, Caramelized-Apple Crepes...yum! Can't wait to try these recipes:)

Looks yummy, but too much work. Have fun, non-lazy chefs!

BTW, if anyone wants to surprise me with Almond Ciabatta French Toast or Banana Nutella Crepes, please feel free.

A solid book with more than just your usual brunch recipes. The pictures were great, but nothing really popped out at me.
