The Cook You Want to Be: Everyday Recipes to Impress is an excellent cookbook by celebrated chef and food writer, Andy Baraghani. His Persian roots are evident in the recipes he presents, and the variety of dishes will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. Even though many of the recipes have foreign origins, the ingredients called for are fairly common and can be found in regular grocery stores.

In addition to great recipes, there are dozens of helpful hints and techniques for home cooks to improve their cooking skills. The recipes are presented in the traditional form, so that they are easy to follow. Most of the recipes call for minimal ingredients, and are not difficult to prepare. There are also beautiful photographs of most of the dishes, which are inspiring. The prose is well-written, so this cookbook is one to curl up in a corner and read cover to cover.

Especially inspiring are the vegetable recipes – there are many, and they are unique and mouthwatering. There are other tempting recipes for fish, lamb, pork, and chicken. Dessert recipes are scarce, but the ones included are beautiful and tempting. Everyone will find something to love in this cookbook.

This is a fun and informative cookbook, and most cooks will welcome it as an addition to a cookbook shelf.
