Mine shipled today so I'll get it Wednesday. There is a book release party and The Cinnamon Snail is going to be there so I'm thinking of going.

I've had this for a little while and have held off even mentioning it because it would have been cruel...that's how amazing and inventive it is! I don't want to overuse "amazing," but that's the only word for it. If you like sweet-plus-spicy, this is your book. I haven't made many of the recipes yet but I can tell by looking at them that they are going to be [that word again].

I've always hated the harshness of mustard greens but there's a recipe for bourbon-blanched mustard greens which is so, so simple and it has done the impossible and made me like them. Somehow, it takes aways all of the bitterness and yuck factor. It's funny that the recipes that seem like throwaways sometimes turn out to the life changers. Dramatic much? But I really did dislike mustard greens with a passion.

The same thing with the nut milks. Who needs more nut milk recipes? But these have twists that make them - I'm going to say it - amazing. I've made the vanilla sesame milk and clove rosewater pistachio. I served the latter in a green tea latte to two omnis who ranted and raved about about how good it was and even asked for a glass, cold, without the tea. They couldn't place what was in it or why it was so good, they just knew that they loved it and wanted to go straight to the store to buy the ingredients so they could make their own.

The gochujang burger (I'm pretty sure I have the names all wrong...the book is at my office), is incredible. I had a gochujang burger from the truck a couple of years ago and can't remember if this is the exact thing, but it's so, so good. I can't imagine anyone not liking this. I don't know what else to say about it.

I'm dying to try the Thai BBQ ribs, kimchi dumplings, and creme brûlée donuts. It's Cinnamon Snail - how can I not make one of their donut recipes? It just seems like a lot of work for something that won't be so great the next day. The recipes seem to take a little time but there are components that can be made in advance in a lot of cases. I would say that they're less labor intensive than Bryant Terry's recipes but they're not something to be thrown together in 20 minutes when you get in the door starving on a weeknight.

I'll stop now!

Oh wow! X that is an awesome review! I saw a few of the recipes when he was testing and I was really nervous that there would be a lot of very expensive ingredients etc, so I held off ordering, but your review is giving me hope!

I think the biggest expenditure that may be hard to work to around would be the flours. A lot of the recipes are gluten-free so there's an array of different flours like buckwheat, chestnut, sorghum, etc. I know there are blogs out there with the calculations for changing gluten-free recipes to AP or WW flour, but I've never attempted it.

I wish I had the book in front of me because I want to say that the expensive or uncommon ingredients that I noticed could either be easily substituted or left out. Something like asafoetida can be replaced with onion powder or umeboshi vinegar with lemon juice and a little extra salt. In most cases, they're calling for tiny amounts. One that I do remember was a pancake recipe that called for something like 5 juniper berries to make a salted caramel. Juniper may put it over the top, but I don't know anyone who would complain about salted caramel without it.

There are also some ingredients that are common in raw food recipes, like cacao nibs, lucuma, and maca, but most of the savory recipes seemed fairly straightforward.

Awesome! Thank you! I don't have willpower and already ordered via Prime shipping.

I think the wings are the first thing I'll make. I had some really good seitan wings in Philly. They were mind blowing!

This is on my must buy list. The Amazon preview looks amazing. I'm going to live vicariously through all of you for a while though, so I look forward to your recipe reviews.

Got mine in the mail an hour ago. Having it shipped to work was a bad idea; what a blow to my productivity! Haha

The book is beautiful and I have no idea where to start. Food overload.

One thing I find surprising though is that no basic seitan recipe is included. He is rather pointing to it as a shopping list item. That’s odd, I would have thought he’d make it from scratch. Does anyone have some inside info on that? I’m sure there’s a tester or two hiding somewhere in here…

i have to say this book is thick, and it is beautiful.
but i feel v. overwhelmed just reading it, but i don't even really see a starting point for me. (it doesn't even help that I am unemployed, so a lot of these look like i have to go ingredient hunting) and it looks a bit intimidating. I'm not sure if this goes back to amazon or not. but i don't know how much play this will get.

I - am equal parts intrigued, amazed, and sad about this book LOL

Like many area restaurants etc, the seitan he uses is that Ray's Seitan stuff which I think is made in Philly.

I think this book looks way too complicated and involved for me to use very often, but I also think it looks completely amazing and I need it. Like, I want mostly quick weeknight recipes in my life, but everything here looks so damn good! And different. I don't need another book with an avocado toast recipe, so I'm kind of glad he just went all out, even if that makes it intimidating.

The recipes look spectacular but I wish there were more entree recipes. I almost never make sides, appetizers or desserts.

Oh really? Thanks for the info. Being from Montreal, I’ve never knowingly had Ray’s seitan. Do you know other places in NYC who would use it for sure? Or actually, would you say the texture is more of a homemade steamed, boiled or slow cooked seitan? Dense/dry vs soft/wet, I guess.

I’m just trying to figure out what recipe I should use to try and replicate it as best as possible.

That's a great post, Supercarrot. I've always tried to get the water perfectly clear and I've ended up with extremely dense seitan every time.

I'm so excited the vanilla creme brulee donuts are in it. I would have bought just for that.

Mine arrived but it's upstate and I'm not so I have to wait til tomorrow.

I think it's definitely a simmered seitan. It's not dense like baked or steamed. I don't think it would matter too much what kind of you used. Pretty sure the Candle restaurants use it, too in NY.

I was a little disappointed by the use of pre-made seitan In these recipes. The seitam from the truck is so good, I was hoping to recreate it. There is one seitan recipe I found in the book, though, for the Thai seitan bbq ribs. I think I'll try those tonight!
