This is one of my favorite chef faces. Just look at Louis Szathmary. Doesn’t he remind you of the Muppet’s “Swedish Chef?”
The chef put a lot of love and effort into this book. He would give his recipes to average home cooks with little or no experience and watch their techniques and ask their frustrations. He worked on each recipe to make sure any cook could prepare his recipes with success. This effort took several years of his life to complete, and it is all in this book for us to enjoy. Each and every recipe has a “Chef’s Tip.” For example, in the recipe for blue cheese meatballs, one of the tips reads as follows: “Crumble the blue cheese with a fork on a metal pie plate and freeze for at least 1 hour, keeping them in the freezer until you add them to the meat.” The chef could have written an entire book just on his tips!
