Read In My Kitchen: 100 Recipes and Discoveries for Passionate Cooks Online Free - A cookbook for people who love to cook
As host of Food Network’s hit show Chopped, Ted Allen presides in pinstripes and sneakers while chefs scramble to cook with mystery ingredients. But at home, Ted is the one chopping the vegetables and working the stove, trying unusual ingredients and new techniques, from roasting earthy sunchokes in a piping-hot oven to develop their sweetness or transforming leftover pinot noir into complexly flavored homemade vinegar. In fact, it’s discoveries like these that propel him into the kitchen nightly—that, of course, and eating the delicious results with friends! Now Ted invites likeminded cooks to roll up their sleeves, crank up the stereo, and join him in the kitchen for some fun.
While there are mountains of cookbooks featuring five-minute, three-ingredient, weeknight recipes for harried households, here is a book for food lovers who want to lose themselves in the delight of perfectly slow-roasting a leg of lamb—Mexican style—or whipping up a showstopping triple-layer cake. Ted is just such a cook and in his latest cookbook he shakes up expectations by topping bruschetta with tomatoes and strawberries; turning plums, sugar, and a bay leaf into an irresistible quick jam; putting everything you can think of on the grill—from ribs and pork shoulder to chiles and green beans; and modernizing the traditional holiday trio of turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce with fresh ingredients and a little booze. And where there’s a will to make something from scratch, Ted provides a way, with recipes for homemade pickles, pizza, pasta, pork buns, preserved lemons, breads, quick jam, marshmallows, and more.
With more than 100 amazing recipes and gorgeous color photographs throughout, In My Kitchen is perfect for passionate home cooks looking for inspiring new recipes and techniques to add to their playbooks.

This book is infused with Ted Allen's personality. I went to a talk and book signing when I picked up this book so I got to hear Ted talk about it but even if I hadn't this book would have been a hit with me because it seems that Ted's palate is very similar to mine. So many of these recipes appe...

I've watched his Food Network show "Chopped" a few times, and know that his recipes always seem to be something normal/ordinary with a neat twist. Sure enough, that's what I found in this cookbook, with recipes like Bruschettea with Strawberries and tomato, Macaroni and Cheese with Aged Gouda an...

I saw Ted in person for a book talk about this book and it was AMAZING! He is just as nice in real life as he seems to be on tv. And the book is great; full of recipes I want to try and fun little tips and sidebars that are both useful and amusing. I foresee this book getting lots of love in the...

This is a really great read if you really love food. It's almost more something to read than cook from, though the recipes are great. I love Allen's tone, the way he just drops large chunks of knowledge into the middle of a recipe, how he deconstructs Thanksgiving - all of it. I didn't rate this...

Tries too hard.
Why make Fig banana bread? Why put one or two chichi ingredients in every recipe so I have to run out and buy from a gourmet grocer? Who wants to make cassoulet anyways. Way too complicated for most everyday cooks.

I am in love with Ted Allen and Barry Rice! I want to hang out with them and cook! They are totally awesome dudes, foodies to the core and this book is like two old friends sitting down to dinner and then drinking coffee for hours into the morning after.
The recipes here are inventive, exciting an...

He's not just the host who ushers the cooks to the guillotine (er, chopping block) on Food Network's Chopped. He's got a great deal of kitchen cred of his own, and In My Kitchen: 100 Recipes and Discoveries for Passionate Cooks is one case in point.
The book provides clear, straightforward instruc...

To start with, page 37, Kill your tupperware. I don't buy tupperware but I did start reusing my soup and takeout containers, instead of recycling them. They do store better in my freezer and I love using them. Plus, when I give out leftovers, I'm happier about not getting the containers back. The...

I love how it's written in Ted Allens voice, particularly since I so enjoy him on Chopped. The recipe/cooking side of him is one that I've had much less exposure to but I liked the book. I consider myself to be an average to slightly above average chef and some of the recipes were a little beyond...
