The Lazy Gourmet Book Review and Giveaway



Have you ever wanted to have a fabulous dinner party, invite your boss over to impress, or show your snotty cousin Gweneth that you can make a delicious chocolate mousse, too? But perhaps you think you're not really that great of a cook. Well then, The Lazy Gourmet is your guide to fixing fabulous meals for any occasion. You don't need any previous cooking experience to be able to follow these simple yet sophisticated recipes. The easiest way to cook like a gourmet chef is to have a well stocked pantry. Chapter One is devoted to helping us have on hand everything we need from oils and vinegars to pasta, rice and other staples.

There are chapters on main dishes, soups, sides, salads, desserts and more. Easy explanations on cooking techniques, and great tips and suggestions are all here to give us confidence and increase our skills in the kitchen. Everyday family meals can be elevated to a new standard just by incorporating some of these easy but elegant recipes into your daily life. As much as I liked this book, I have to say that I was disappointed that there are no pictures included. I love seeing the finished dish and what it's supposed to look like. Even without pictures, if you want to learn to make meals that will be delicious and impressive, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of The Lazy Gourmet.
