This book follows a well worn plan for failure. It selects several famous chefs and gathers a few recipes from each of them, adding a few irrelevant interview questions and glamour shots for filler. Of course the chefs involved saved their better recipes for their own cookbooks, and have no reason to give attention to teaching technique. I would have given it a lower rating except for a few interesting recipes from Alton Brown, Wolfgang Puck and the Food Network staff.

In general, I usually enjoy Food Network recipes and their chefs (yes, yes, I know I'm trash), but this book was a bit of a letdown. Lots of pictures of the chefs, less of the food, which I ain't about.

A few to try and great snippets of each chef.

I picked up a used copy of this book at Bookman's while visiting Tucson, AZ, a week ago. I've already tried four recipes--each of which has met with success.

In the three days that we've been home, I've made (1) Dave Lieberman's black bean soup (the cost of the book is worth it for this recipe alone!), (2) Lieberman's roasted salmon with roasted plum tomatoes and caramelized lemons, (3) his Bow Tie Pasta with Pesto, Feta & Cherry Tomatoes and (4) Paula Deen's Tennessee Banana-Black Walnut Ca

I used to love watching the Food Network, back when we had cable. Alton Brown and Rachael Ray were some of my favorites. And for drama, you can't beat Iron Chef or the Food Network Challenges. So I thought I would have fun with this cookbook.

Well, it was kind of fun, but honestly, there's only about 6-8 recipes in this book that I would make. The best ones are from the noted TV chef, Food Network Kitchens. That's right - the support staff. I think I will try making English muffins from Alton Bro
I was disappointed in this cookbook. I enjoy reading cookbooks for the recipes, but I have no interest in the chef's personal lives or stories. I buy cookbooks for the recipes. I don't care how long they have been cooking, where they have been chef's prior to this book, what they look like, where they live, what their house looks like, who they are married or not married to, etc. This cookbook doesn't get overly personal, just too much for me.

My only interest is in recipes. Hopefully pictures o

I liked seeing different recipes from some of my favorite cooks. There were a lot of great recipes to try. I found myself leaning more towards the Tyler Florence things. A few recipes I passed over thinking I wouldn't try them, but then came back to them to try later and they were great. Some recipes didn't seem to be right for the "everyday person" if that makes sense. There are some ingredients that I am not sure if I can find them at my local super market. I might have to search farmers marke ...more

"Food Network Favorites: Recipes from Our All-Star Chefs" was my first cookbook purchase connected to the "Food Network", and it was a great way to start my collection! The format is friendly, the food is flavorful and fixable. The book is overflowing with relaxed and revealing interviews and insights from some of TV's favorite celebrity chefs. The food photos are gorgeous, and the recipes are well laid out and easy to follow. I also greatly enjoyed the "insider" pages from the Food Network kitc ...more

was neither good or bad. i would not buy this book the only good section that i would be more than willing to make more than one thing out of was the first alton brown. most of the recipes seemed geared for people who are not home cooks. it was almost as if the cook would need more than average cooking skills i would possibly eat the food but as far as putting in the effort to make it ..... no.

I Just cannot make myself pay this much for a book just for Alton Browns ham coating, Though I have tried it and it is astounding! But that technique was on TV. I am not familiar enough with Everything the other chefs have cooked to know if these were all on TV previously either.

I enjoy this cookbook and probably cook a few recipes on a rotating basis in my house! My personal favorites are the snickerdoodles and the Shrimp Diablo! There's quite a few recipes that I'll never cook, but I really did find the Q&A with the chefs fun to read.

This book has a great variety with many photographs (although in a perfect world, there would be a photo for each recipe). I haven't made many of the items in it, but Paula Deen's Corn Casserole has become one of my standard potluck offerings.

Holy Cow! If there is something good you want to make this book will most likely have it. There is a mixture of different kinds, ethnics, and flavors in this cookbook. Got it as a gift and I really like it!
