Michael Symon's 5 in 5 365: 150 Quick Dinners, Sides, Holiday Dishes, and Brunches for Every Season Reviews
Great, simple recipes from an Iron Chef! In the past I've tested other cookbooks by chefs claiming that dinner will be ready in 10 minutes, and 45 min later I'm still putting it all together! These recipes truly do use 5 (ok, around 5) simple ingredients, and do cook very quickly, and the few I've prepared have been delicious. I can't wait to check out the original "5 in 5," although this one includes several recipes that use Brussels sprouts and bacon, and kielbasa and beer, so that's hard to b ...more
These recipes are very simple and require few ingredients, although many of the same ingredients appear over and over again (mustard is everywhere). Many of the ingredients aren't ones I favor, and the recipes were so simple you don't really even need the book. There are only a couple of recipes in here I am likely to try. I was a little disappointed as I love Michael Symon, but I think it's a good book for the right cook.
I was pretty excited to find a new cookbook to review. I was even more excited when it came in the mail a few days later. Michael Symon's 5 in 5 for Every Season: 165 Quick Dinners, Sides, Holiday Dishes, and More by Michael Symon was an interesting mix of ideas that I was excited to check out.

I'm a big fan of Food Network shows (and cookbooks...but, I think that's obvious by my growing cookbook collection). I have learned quite a bit just by paying attention to some of these incredibly creative chefs. Putting many of the reality-type cooking shows aside, I have learned so much about basic knife skills, how to put certain flavors together, and simply create an elegant dish for any occasion.
However, one chef I haven't seemed to have followed quite as much is Michael Symon. I've seen hi ...more
I have always loved the idea of five ingredients in five minutes. These take a little longer and don't count spices as ingredients so the title is a little misleading. There are some very tasty ideas here (no macaroni or velveeta need apply). More meat than I usually eat, but great for a last minute meal when I'm pooped. I greatly appreciated his pantry chapter which lets you know what you need to keep on hand. Arranged by season, Mr Symon makes it easy to find recipes with ingredients I just go ...more
Organized into seasons, these meals are "plentiful" with year round basics and local produce. Beginning with what is in your pantry, the opening season is the spring. Michael entices you out of the winter and into the farmers' markets. Keeping meals "light" and "quick and easy" here are a few that interested our family:
Spring Pea "Guacamole" with grilled bread and radish (pg.14): perfect entree for any gathering, especially book clubs
Grilled chicken breast with shaved fennel and orange salad ( ...more
