    In his newest book, Burnt Toast and Other Disasters , renowned chef and cookbook author Cal Peternell shares advice on how to weather common cooking mistakes and what to do when the food you've cooked or have at your disposal isn’t quite what you’d hoped. Some of you may know that I went to culinary school about 16-17 years ago and worked as a personal chef for a while, so needless to say, I love cooking. But no matter how much I’ve cooked through the years, and for how many people, I’ve had d In his newest book, Burnt Toast and Other Disasters , renowned chef and cookbook author Cal Peternell shares advice on how to weather common cooking mistakes and what to do when the food you've cooked or have at your disposal isn’t quite what you’d hoped. Some of you may know that I went to culinary school about 16-17 years ago and worked as a personal chef for a while, so needless to say, I love cooking. But no matter how much I’ve cooked through the years, and for how many people, I’ve had disasters, and there also have been times where things just didn’t work the way they were supposed to. What I love so much about this new book Peternell gives great advice on what to do when your meat is too dried out, your bread is too burnt, your vegetables are too boring or too mushy. He shares tips, advice, and great recipes to either transform your mishap into something else or rescue it. The subtitle of this book, A Book of Heroic Hacks, Fabulous Fixes, and Secret Sauces , really lives up to its name. There are so many recipes in here I’m going to try, from sauces to ideas on how to jazz up store-bought mac and cheese or cans of beans. I often say one of the greatest things I learned in culinary school was how to make a meal using stuff in my refrigerator; with this book in hand, you’ll feel just as empowered. Many thanks to William Morrow Books for the complimentary advance copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review! See all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoria.blogspot.com.

    Four stars is more of an impression than a fair rating since I perused all the pages rather than read it cover to cover. This is a book I should buy or put on my wish list to get gifted so I can access it repeatedly in the kitchen scribbling notes in the page borders and adding bookmarks as I work the material. This seems to me a good filling cookbook to stretch my culinary muscles.

    the rice pancakes are the recipe i'm most likely to try out. i guess i'm old and had too many years as a starving student but I totally think I know how to use leftovers and salvage questionable cooking ;-) Plus life as the child of depression era parents taught me a lot about using stuff he doesn't even mention like slightly off meats and fish or over ripe fruits and vegs so I kind of think the authors use of 'disasters' in the title is over doing it. the rice pancakes are the recipe i'm most likely to try out. i guess i'm old and had too many years as a starving student but I totally think I know how to use leftovers and salvage questionable cooking ;-) Plus life as the child of depression era parents taught me a lot about using stuff he doesn't even mention like slightly off meats and fish or over ripe fruits and vegs so I kind of think the authors use of 'disasters' in the title is over doing it.

    Clever approach to a cookbook, but not quite what I want out of one.
