I really struggle with any kind of kitchen confidence, so when a reader on Anne’s podcast listed this as one of her top 3 favorite books EVER, I knew I had to order it. Guys, this book is a game changer!! I mean, it made me YouTube proper knife holding and chopping techniques. Then I bought everything I need to make HOMEMADE BREAD. I also plan to roast a whole chicken and use the bones and leftovers to make my own chicken stock. Who am I? Well, after reading this book, I felt like I was a student of a Le Cordon Bleu educated chef.

I was fascinated by this book. The theories on how America became a boxed food nation, how easy it is to make the REAL version of the boxed/bagged foods, etc. kept me up reading into the wee hours. I was tagging the recipes I wanted to try in a book that was reading like a novel/memoir. It’s SO GOOD. I think it should be required reading for students who are about to embark on the real world. Also, for the love of God, our country needs to bring home education back to high schools. Robert and I were debating on this (he thinks a shop class would be more important, of course, because he’s a boy!), so I want to hear that you think!

"So who says you can’t cook? Not every meal has to be from scratch, nor does everything you consume have to be organic, locally sourced, and pasture raised. Try to find a comfortable place somewhere between Tuna Helper and Top Chef."

This book was life-changing! I can't believe I'd never read it, and turns out that I accidentally own all of Flinn's books and hadn't even realized it! Pictured above is a Thai salmon dish I was inspired to create based on the author's little flavor cheat sheet at the back of the book. I'm not one for food documentaries because I know I wouldn't be able to sleep a wink ever! But this book opened my eyes to how I shop, and how I can be so wasteful without even realizing it! She also made me sheepishly realize how many things I buy already made, when I can make them very simply at home for a fraction of the cost. I'm inspired, and I don't think I can just go back to how I was doing things before, just like the students of her Kitchen Counter Cooking School. Highly recommend!

This is a book that fits in multiple categories. It's clearly nonfiction and a memoir of sorts as the author the author chronicles her culinary journey. While not a cookbook in the classic sense, the book is filled with kitchen sense and tips with recipes at the end of each chapter.
This is a book designed to help would-be cooks, timid cooks, cooks who run the gamut from novice to experienced. The author took nine diverse women and taught them kitchen sense along with basic knife and cooking skills with amazing results. I cook, bake and tend to experimentation in the kitchen. But I was fascinated as I read and had several "Aha!" moments as I reviewed my own pantry along with the students. Never too old or experienced to learn if willing.
I loved this book. This is a book to pass along to friends for sure.

After reading her 1st book I knew I was going to buy any subsequent ones because she is such a good writer. The writing does not disappoint, it is as good as ever. What I enjoyed less about this was what it covered. The first book was about much more than just attending a prestigious cooking school in France, although that alone made it worth reading. It was also a captivating personal story of adventure and challenge. This book is covers a more narrow ground. While she does try to bring her students alive with descriptions she of course knows far less about the students then herself and the difference shows.

My real puzzle about this book, though, is what it is intended to do. Michael Ruhlman comes to mind as an author who wrote about cooking school and then went on to write books explaining how to cook. This book goes partway there, describing the author's foray into teaching cooking skills. But even though it includes recipes and advice, it is not detailed enough (no drawings, for instance) for a culinary novice to learn from it alone. Certainly the 9 students she describes leading in class gained confidence and skills, but I doubt they would have found the same success if just handed this book instead.

I listened to this from the library and decided I just had to buy it simply for the recipes as well as tips on techniques like cutting onions without tears. I found it well-written and engaging.

If you are a person that doesn't know how to cook or thinks you have to buy a bottle to get a sauce you like and cooking is a lot of hard work, please buy this book. If you are someone who wants to teach another person how to cook, buy this book. Cooking from scratch is not hard and not expensive, and being healthier is not an impossible expensive dream. No one needs all the nasty chemicals that pre-made foods contain.

You can enjoy yourself in the kitchen, and impress your friends and maybe even your MIL. ;)

The Kitchen Counter Cooking School, took me to one of my favorite places, the grocery store. Sharing her passion for cooking and teaching, this book illustrates Kathleen’s desire to help demystify cooking and get people eating real food. As a cooking teacher myself, this book not only filled me with inspiration, but gave me empathy and changed the way I share my kitchen knowledge with others.
As a person, as a teacher, as a writer and as a cook; the word that describes Kathleen Flinn and her work is approachable. Her books, classes, writing and recipes are all approachable. New cooks and veteran cooks alike benefit from Kathleen’s honesty and wit.
I have read each of Kathleen’s memoirs and they are drastically different books. They are each impeccably written and researched, full of tantalizing recipes, but travel down different roads at different places and times.
