My Review:

I had the pleasure of meeting Chef Michael Symon a few years ago and he is one of the nicest, most down to earth people I’ve met.  When I had the opportunity to get his latest cookbook and review it, I jumped at the chance.

This book is divided into sections by the seasons.  Chef Symon’s reasoning behind this is so that we will use the freshest of the produce available in each season and by doing so the flavors of our meals will be enhanced exponentially.

I love it when a cookbook introduces a recipe with a short paragraph either describing the dish or providing a quick companion story to that particular dish.  At the start of each season in this book, Chef Symon gives a brief commentary about that season and what it means to him.

Each recipe in this book is easy to follow and no more than a page in length.  The steps to follow are not long winded, making this cookbook useful for even the busiest of weeknights.  I can’t wait to get started.  I give this cookbook 5 crowns.
