Chef Michael Symon has been a favorite in our home for several years due to The Food Network. We've watched him mature into a fabulous TV chef and now he's the cohost of ABC's The Chew. 5 in 5 is his latest cookbook and what I like about this book is that everything takes very little time to cook. What is better for us? We all live on the run but we want to eat good food.
Look at some of these pictures:
This is good food and real food for real people of any level of culinary skill. He opens the book with a list of pantry must-haves and then the book is separated into four sections, spring, summer, fall and winter, so you can use the ingredients that are fresh during those times of the year. This is genius. Not only that, but you will find yourself using different things that you'd never thought of trying. Grilled skirt steak with radish and blue cheese. Kale and apple salad with maple cider dressing. Turkey cutlets with almonds and dates.
Yes, you want this book.
