Does your fridge need a makeover? According to Kristen Hong, anyone can organize their fridge and learn to keep foods longer; the instructions are included in Fridge Love: Organize Your Refrigerator for a Healthier, Happier Life―with 100 Recipes . The book has excellent instruction for making your fridge perfect. Unfortunately, most people will find that while everything works as the author suggests, it isn’t really something that can be accomplished in real life. Rather, a perfect fridge is for many, an aspect of dreamland. Also, to follow the author’s suggestions by purchasing perfect containers, all the same, is quite expensive and will result in spending hundreds of dollars to get the fridge set up.

Some of the best parts of this book are the chapters on keeping foods fresh. The suggestions are good and they actually work. The recipes in the book are nice, and most are very healthy. They aren’t however, recipes that many mainstream cooks won’t want to make.

While the idea is good, it doesn’t really seem like something that could be accomplished in real life, especially when most people have different things to put in their fridges. Sometimes we crave food that isn’t on the list or won’t fit in the proper container.

All told, anyone who wants to have a perfectly organized, impeccably clean fridge, or anyone who has OCD will appreciate this book. Many critics have given it 5 stars; what world are they living in? Once reality sets in, most will use many of the suggestions, but will realize that perfection isn’t possible for those of us who actually use our fridge to store food that doesn’t fit into the perfect containers. The book has excellent information that almost everyone will appreciate, and it’s a book that will be very helpful for those who include it in their cookbook collection. This isn’t a book for everyone.
