Try This at Home Review
Chef Blais’ wit and imagination come through on every page of his first book like Try This at Home. But all of his innovative recipes are based on his strong foundation of culinary tradition. He jazzes up everyday recipes we all know in a unique style that is all his own. Macaroni and headcheese, anyone? From start to finish it is an enjoyable read. The pictures of food and fellow chefs in Try This at Home are awesome and really jump off the page.
Try This at Home book covers everything from his most essential spices to fab desserts sure to please everyone around the table. I now have four cookbooks in my collection and have a feeling the others won’t be seeing the light of day for quite a while. Try This at Home is a must for everyone who enjoys making magic happen in the kitchen.
