Padma Lakshmi is host of Top Chef. So, that brings me to the second & Chef' cookbook, & Quickfire Cookbook'. I'm a fan of the quickfire challenges on the show, for it really gets down and showcases the chefs ability to adapt on command.

Padma Lakshmi is host of Top Chef. A former model and actress, she is the author of two cookbooks. You have time restraints and limited ingredient selection or themes you need to work within and you have to make it pristine and polished. Using these challenges for this cookbook was a great idea, and I'm almost tempted to say that this cookbook is, overall, better than the one that preceded it.

I purchased the 2009 Top Chef Quickfire Cookbook as a gift for my roommate. Immediately I loved the presentation, the hardcover book has a beautiful, elegant look to it. Inside the full color photos of the food and of the previous Quickfire winning contestants were very well done. The recipes were organized in different ways, by Top Chef Season as well as by type of food, . breakfast, beverages, etc. I liked the behind the scenes info and info on the previous contestants

If anyone knows me they know that my favorite show in the history of television is...`The Sopranos', but my favorite REALITY show in the history of reality T.V. is `Top Chef'. I love to cook, I mean truly LOVE it. There is no place I'd rather be than a kitchen (well, I won't totally exaggerate, but you get the idea).

If only I had the time and money to put myself through culinary school!

Alas, I can only dream, and this show helps me dream BIGGER. It influences me and urges me with each intricately conceived dish to push myself even more, expand my personal taste and grow as a chef myself. Okay, so I'm not a chef, but try and tell my friends and family that!

So, that brings me to the second `Top Chef' cookbook, `The Quickfire Cookbook'. I'm a fan of the quickfire challenges on the show, for it really gets down and showcases the chefs ability to adapt on command. You have time restraints and limited ingredient selection or themes you need to work within and you have to make it pristine and polished. Using these challenges for this cookbook was a great idea, and I'm almost tempted to say that this cookbook is, overall, better than the one that preceded it.

Okay, I'm not tempted too...I'm saying it. This one is better!

Just like the first in the series, this is so much more than a simple cookbook. For any fan of the show, this is a MUST HAVE item. With bios on every contestant (cheftestant) from the first 5 seasons, as well as trivia, back-stories on the show itself, quizzes and fun exercises, this is the ultimate cookbook (and a pretty showpiece at that). Oh yeah, and the recipes are great here. So, I haven't prepared everything (that'll take a while) and I rarely follow a recipe to the T since I'm all about improvising and using other recipes or ideas as mere inspiration for my own style, but I have cooked quite a few of these in one way shape or form.

So, some suggestions:

C.J.'s Seafood-Cauliflower-Pepper Salad (found on page 69) is phenomenal. I personally went with shrimp over crayfish, but that is just a personal preference. Spike's Sensual Beef Salad (found on page 91) is also superb, just don't overdo it on the cilantro, unless you really like that flavor (I don't). These two salads are great and easy dishes, and they are fun to play with. They are salads yet they have a lot more bite than you usual. Speaking of easy, Mia's Bean Salad (found on page 87) is the easiest dish I've made from this book (everything is basically found in a can) but when you serve this under a pork tenderloin it becomes exquisite, seriously.

And I am determined to master Joey's Scallops with Jasmine Rice Risotto (found on page 125). Okay, so I got the scallop part down (YUM) but risotto is my Achilles Heal!

So, I totally recommend this book. It's fun, vibrant, entertaining and informative. The recipes range from simple to intricate, but most importantly they all taste really good (or at least the ones I've tried). The pictures are mouth watering, the instructions are fairly easy to follow, and while you may not be able to find every ingredient you need at Wall-Mart, this is the type of book designed to expand your horizons and wrestle out the culinary god (or goddess) in us all.

Oh, and a minor factual error in the book, it was Andrew, NOT SPIKE, who coined the term `culinary boner'.

This book, much like other Top Chef books is just as detailed and wonderful. There are some recipes that are more reasonable to make, but lots of ingredients in each one which makes it top chef worthy. Not for the person who just wants to get through a recipe. Food lovers should have this book!

I ordered two of these as gifts and both were so filthy and thrashed I could never give them to anyone. Amazon has great CS so they sent me two more w/o issue before I'd even sent back the messed up ones. Unfortunately those also were messed up - I was able to keep one of the four I received and decided to give up. The person I gave it to is a big fan of the show and enjoyed it a lot but it's true it is not a very practical cookbook. I think it's more for a conversation starter, the questions inside and photos are fun. Be careful though, they must have a bad batch, hopefully they get them cleaned up and out of their inventory. If you need it fast for a gift you might want to get something else.

The recipes look incredible, and its all your favorites from the best quickfires. That said...there's not much chance that you have the skill to make these recipes, and the directions can be a bit vague. It would ahve been helpful to offer replacements for professional cooking techniques, such as souis vide.

If you loved the TOP CHEF cookbook, you'll LOVE this one too! Fantastic photos, great plating ideas, fabulous recipes!! This book was worth every cent I paid for it and more!

Hubby can't wait to start trying these. Love the series, catching up quickly with the rest of the world. Thanks so much

The directions aren't super clear if you don't already know how to cook most of these things. Be prepared to google a lot with this recipe book.
Book was good but obviously for advanced chefs or chefs that want to be challenged. Not necessarily for families with picky kids.
