I am Drooling Thinking About it. . .

When I need inspiration and cannot figure out what to make for a meal, I turn to this book. I was never able to eat any of Patrick Clark's food, however, I can only imagine if I can take his recipes and turn them into something wonderful, what he would have done with them. I make his ribs at least once a month, when I am asked for the recipe, I point to the book. While I could give them the recipe, I want more people to buy this book. I have made many of Patrick's recipes, and have not found a single entry that was sublime. God Bless you Patrick.

A wonderful book that is more than "just" a cookbook

Patrick Clark was a hero of sorts to me, an idol if you will. I would watch his occasional guest spots on the food network with pen in hand to write down the show numbers so I could download the recipes he made. He seemd to me, through the looking glass that is the television, to be a warm man that loved his work and his world. This cookbook, more a tribute and rememberance than just a cookbook, brings out the story of the man. Half the recipes are his and the other half are recipes shared by other great chefs in his honor, along with their fond recolections of Patrick Clark the chef, the husband, the father and the man. I have made several of the recipes in this book and they are wonderful, as you would expect them to be. They are easy to follow, in most casses, and the results of my bit of cooking were enjoyable. The book is also a worthy read while sitting on the sofa and warming by the fire.It is reassuring to know that the personality that came across on the Television is so close to the real man. His passing left the culinary world short one shining star. I am sorry I never got a chance to taste his cooking first hand. With this cookbook I am able, at least in a secondhand way, to taste the work of the man.

As good as a cookbook can get!

Where else can one get a cookbook which has so many recipes from the world's greatest chefs and at the same time contribute to such a worthy cause? This is such a neat concept! I've made several of these recipes for entertaining. Patrick's recipes have sophistication and comfort all rolled up in one. Diners at my table have raved about the food prepared from his recipes.This is a keeper! Buy one for yourself and give many to all those who love food and cooks!


Thank you Chef Charlie for putting together this delightful array of WORLD RENOWNED CHEFS and for including REGIONAL CHEFS, such as Mark Filippo from Cafe Meze in Westchester, NY. The late Chef Patrick would be proud of this MOUTH WATERING MEMORIAL. I see several chefs are not waiting for the weekending April 25 DINNER CELEBRATION to release their delicious contributions. They have already added them to thier present menu. These UNIQUE CULINARY DELIGHTS can not only be used over and over and, but also passed from generation to generation. THIS VOLUME IS A MUST FOR COLLECTORS. If you've said or heard the phase "I'll be home late, Honey" too often, here's a recipe for moving ahead faster then a cake rises. PLAN AHEAD - pop one of these GREAT CHEF'S recipes in the oven and read the "2000 Percent Solution" by Mitchell, Coles and Metz. You'll spend more time with Chef Charlie and these GUEST CHEFS when you learn to avoid TIME-WASTING STALLS that keep you from reaching your full career potential.
