This year at Barnes & Noble, they are selling an exclusive book published by Hearst titled Celebrity Chefs- More Than 60 Delicious Recipes that contains recipes from some of the most popular TV chefs for just $9.95. It's a hardcover book, and it will make a really nice gift for the chef on your list. The book was 30% off this week and members got another 10% off, so you could buy several copies as gifts, each costing less than lunch at Subway.
Many of the recipes were previously published in Hearst magazines, such as Women's Day, Good Housekeeping and Redbook. The book opens with a thumbnail sketch of each chef, and then chapters are your standard Appetizers, Salads and Soups, Meat, etc.
There are many recipes I would like to try including:
- Hubert Keller's Mango-Avocado Bruschetta
- Carla Hall's Winter Salad with Pears, Aged Cheddar & Almonds
- Mark Bittman's Pasta with Funghi Trifolati
- Lisa Fain's Sour Cream-Chicken Enchiladas
- Marcus Samuelsson's Whiskey Fudge
