Alex Guarnaschelli grew up in a home suffused with a love of cooking, where soufflés and cheeseburgers were equally revered. The daughter of a respected cookbook editor and a Chinese cooking enthusiast, Alex developed a passion for food at a young age, sealing her professional fate. Old-School Comfort Food shares her journey from waist-high taste-tester to trained chef who now adores spending time in the kitchen with her daughter, along with the 100 recipes for how she learned to cook—and the way she still loves to eat.
Here are Alex’s secrets to great home cooking, where humble ingredients and familiar preparations combine with excellent technique and care to create memorable meals. Alex brings her recipes to life with reminiscences of everything from stealing tomatoes from her aunt’s garden and her first bite of her mother’s pâté to being one of the few women in the kitchen of a renowned Parisian restaurant and serving celebrity clientele in her own successful New York City establishments. With 75 color photographs and ephemera, Old-School Comfort Food is Alex’s love letter to deliciousness.
Excellent book. Love the personal stories Alex tells, along with terrific recipes. The first recipe I made, the very next day after I received the book, was the chicken with ginger and tomatoes. Beyond my expectations. Delicious. I also liked the copies of the receipts and writings she has in the book that she has collected over the years. She is truly devoted to her craft. The best cookbook I bought in many years.I am very happy with this book.
This is a beautiful book! I love the story line, pictures are beautiful. I wish I had Alex on speed dial. I was looking for the casual cooks comfort foods, chicken and dumplings type of thing maybe. I will definitely try my hand at some of these sophisticated recipes.
Love the cookbook! Alex is one of my favorites on the foodnetwork....actually I love them all!
"Comfort-Food" is the key to this recipe book. Easy to read, easy to follow instructions and a fun glimpse into Alex's relationship with cooking and her family. Alex has been one of my favorite judges on Chopped and this cookbook allows me to recreate some of her families favorites. Plus, the type size is a little larger _ which I appeciate.
Good cookbook, interesting stories
