Dan Kluger is a celebrated chef who has had plenty of experience working in famous restaurants. In his cookbook, Chasing Flavor he has shared his expertise with readers. In this book, there are lists of ingredients, cooking tools, and most importantly, techniques, that will help those of us who cook improve our cooking skills. There are beautiful photographs for the techniques, which is very helpful.

Unlike some cookbooks where chefs show off their expertise and intimidate their readers, this cookbook includes mouthwatering recipes that regular people will actually want to cook. Many of the dishes are photographed, although it would be nice to have a photo of every dish because they are so tempting. The instructions are succinct and easy to follow. While some of the dishes have several steps and multiple parts, anyone who loves to cook will appreciate the variety of dishes included, and will want to bookmark several for preparing as soon as possible.

As every complete cookbook, this one contains fabulous appetizers and snacks that will add a uniqueness to any dinner party. The vegetable section is absolutely impressive; there are enough delectable vegetables in this book to draw raves at every meal and throughout the holidays. The salads are unique and hard to resist, and the meat and seafood chapters will not disappoint. The only thing missing is desserts – there are none.

Anyone who wants to impress family and guests will want to pick up this excellent cookbook. It’s always nice when an expert is able to share his hard work and talent with those of us who want to cook excellent dishes at home. Chasing Flavor is highly recommended.
