One of the best aspects about reviewing a cookbook is that I take the time to make a few of the recipes. First of all, I like photos that make me want to make a recipe and there was a long list of recipes here that I wanted to try based on the photos alone. Second, I like to see if the recipes are easy to follow and the 3 that I chose were well written and precise. Finally, the proof is in the pudding so to speak - how good does the food actually taste and more importantly, does my family like it and would I make it again?

The unanimous first choice was Eggplant Parmigiana. First I prepared the eggplant...
Added the cheese and easy to make sauce....
I baked it and look at this - How delicious does that look? It was excellent!! When my husband states that a dinner I made is the best he ever had, I know I have a winner. This was by far the best eggplant parmigiana I've ever made.
Next up was a Mushroom Risotto. I've never made any kind of risotto and I have no idea why not. It was super easy to make, quick and very good.
I served the Mushroom Risotto as a side dish with the Chicken Parmigiana, which was easily another winning recipe. It consisted of chicken breasts with a homemade sauce and cheese. Paired with the risotto, it was a perfect meal and one I will make again.
Great Pub Food offers a lot of fun Pub recipes from around the world. The food photos will make you want to try your hand at recreating delicious Pub Food at home. Pour yourself a beer or a glass of wine, sit back and enjoy.
I was provided an advance copy of the book for review purposes and asked to give an honest review. All opinions are my own. All photos are property of Rizzoli Publishing and cannot be reproduced.
