One might be tempted to dismiss Food Network star Florence Tyler as just a pretty package, but the food he prepares is appealing, honest and downright delicious. Seldom does a cookbook succeed in being both stylish and practical, Tyler’s Ultimate does just that. His tone is simple and instructional for novice cooks, and he presents the freshest of recognizable ingredients in easy to prepare classic dishes. This is everyday practical cooking with nifty, fresh but not overly extravagant ingredients. These are unpretentious meals meant not to just make a good impression but to savour and enjoy. He freshens up everyday ingredients like chicken with dishes like these, Lemon Curry Chicken; Sesame Chicken Salad with Cucumber and Cilantro and Chicken Paillard with Fresh Fig Salad and Blue Cheese. He elevates the everyday comfort foods to new heights, in his Ultimate Baked Beans he uses canned cannelli beans as opposed to more traditional dried and good old fashioned bacon strips with sweet, rib sticking results.
The photography in Tyler’s Ultimate is positively mouthwatering, and it’s all food with nary a gratutious promo shot of chef Tyler! A Food Network winner.
