Celebrated chef, restaurateur, cookbook author Michael Symon always seems to be having such a good time. On The Chew you never see anything different then a smile and tons of laughter. 
As the name implies, each dish contains 5 fresh ingredients and 5 minutes of heat! I love cookbooks, I love trying new recipes, reading them cover to cover and discovering new ways to cook food. I am a cookbook hoarder. This book even has a page where it lays out what items should be in your pantry for easy cooking. Oils and vinegars, seasonings to have on hand, canned, bottled and boxed items, and the basics which are in most pantries already. I love having a staple list ready for me to be able to have everything I need to cover the recipes in this cookbook.  A huge plus is I LOVE pictures. Foodgraphy is a huge plus for me in a cook book. I love knowing exactly what I am suppose to be cooking and what it looks like.  This book has it!  Thank you for a great cook book!
