Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Everyday Gourmet:Making Great Meals in Less Ti I am a very picky eater but even I salivated when I saw how beautiful the food looked when Chef Briwa presented the dish. He has even motivated me to spend more time preparing food instead of just throwing it together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great suggestions of meals! We bought many courses of Everyday Gourmet. Bill Briwa is (unfortunately was) a great chef and a great communicator. For him cooking is a second nature, easy and versatile. He give us the technic and it's up to us to apply them to our preferred recipes. This particular courses is the synthesis of all his others courses. And like Chef Bill used to say, you will enjoy it again and again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Personable chef, recipes for regular humans We enjoyed Chef Bill Briwa's accessibility; friendly and not the least bit intimidating - and some great ideas for shortcuts/quick(er) meals. If you're looking for "open the can and carry on" this isn't for you. Nor if you're already Cordon Bleu level; but for regular folks who want to pick up some good tips, this is for you.
