Michael Smith is my favorite tv-chef! I've missed three chances to see him in person, which is a shame because he seems like such a funny, down-to-earth guy. He even filmed an episode of "Chef at Large" at my workplace one day, before I'd ever heard of him (I wasn't working that day, so I guess that's four times I've missed out on meeting him!) I love his "look in your pantry and let inspiration guide you" mentality, because that's how real people cook anyhow.

I've been looking forward to another book from him and I wouldn't have known he'd done one if it wasn't for this post, so thanks! :) BTW your fishcakes look delicious, and very much in the spirit of things!

Great review Val. I'm sure Michael Smith would be proud!

There are lots of books sitting on my shelves and new ones arrive daily for me to review. I must admit, this one is by far my favorite. Every recipe is awesome.

Sp far we have made $160 with the generation donations from the cookbook people.

Love the review. Michael Smith sounds like my style of cooking. I look forward to trying his fish cake version with our salt cod when I get back home. I have so much catching up to do. I love all of the challenges and projects going. Well done Val and Giz

2009-11-04T05:16:03.285-08:00

Great job on the review, Val! Maybe I'll make some fishcakes when Giz is in town.

I'm going to be late on my review of the bread book -- my house is in a half packed state.

I'm curious how well we're doing with The Cookbook People -- how many people have posted about it? Maybe it would be motivating to have a clicker add-on that shows how close we are to a target?

BTW - I got your card in the mail yesterday. Thanks!

I received Michael Smith new cookbook and I have to say that I would love to make every recipe. I like his relax approach of comfort cooking. I'll be making that Fish Cakes recipe soon. Great review Val.

2009-11-03T05:38:55.065-08:00

Great review Val! I love your photos and the recipes you chose.

I have seen Michael Smith on the Foodnetwork and really like his laid back style of cooking.

Have to add this book to my jam packed cookbook collection.

What an awesome review for an awesome book. Love Michaels freestyle cooking. Just my kind of cooking. Those are some beautiful recipes you've mentioned & a lovely recipe you've posted. Love the 'fall' flavour of the pictures. GREAT!!

These definitely are comfort foods.

I am not familiar with this Chef as I don't get to watch Food Network US or Canada very much. It sounds like a very good book and I certainly like that a lot of the recipes use things that are readily available in most pantries.

Your review is so well written, I very much enjoyed reading it.

Val, I do respect Michael Smith and his encouragement to freestyle in the kitchen is wonderful.

I saw the episode recently with the fish cakes and they sound like a fab meal.

2009-11-01T11:42:41.980-08:00

I can see how someone who writes cookbooks wouldn't use them. At some point, all the ingredients would be swirling in your head and you might be able to just pick and choose! Great recipe -- I've make crabcakes, but love the potato in this recipe and would love to try them. See you at FoodBuzz!

2009-10-31T12:47:27.619-07:00

My kind of cook book. I've not heard of him - but, then, I'm pretty out of touch over here in the hinterlands,
The fish cakes look great - and recipes that can be made without a trip to the store are always good!

The BloggerAid Cook Book should be ready for market soon. We have an Amazon Book Store where we will be advertising to try and maximize the $ amount going to the School Meals Program. We ordered a proof, they need to correct some errors and then we are ready for marketing.You will see it all over the blogosphere!!!!
