The Lazy Gourmet Book Review and Giveaway - Ends 06-30-11

Print Friendly and PDF


Do you love to cook and want to impress your guests?  Here is a great recipe book by Robin Donovan and Juliana Gallin, it's call The Lazy Gourmet.  I made some of the recipes and they were delicious.  I loved the Roasted Salmon with Garlic Confit and the Lazy Cheese Souffles the most.  There are a lot of great recipes.  The family has loved everyone I made so far.

About The Lazy Gourmet

The Lazy Gourmet is for anyone who dreams of dazzling guests with fabulous home cooked fare, but fears that such a feat would require one of the top chefs.  The goal of "The Lazy Gourmet" is to conquer the misguided belief that preparing an elegant meal requires spending hours or days in the kitchen.

With the help of an army of volunteer testers (regular people with no culinary training), the authors created recipes that call for readily available ingredients, use common kitchen appliances and do not require any previous cooking experience or training.  With these recipes, anyone can prepare delicious and sophisticated, yet surprisingly simple dishes that impress fussy friends or family.

The book sells for $15.95 and is available at Viva Editions.

About the Authors

Robin Dovovan is the Berkeley-based author of Campfire Cuisine, Gourmet Recipes for the Great Outdoors and co-author of The New York Times bestseller Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet.

Juliana Gallin works as a graphic designer and produces several popular speakers series, including Ask a Scientist, How-To-Night and Comedy Talks.

About Viva Editions

Books for Vivacious Living!

Viva Editions are books that inform, enlighten, and entertain.  The very name, "Viva!", is celebratory.  While Viva Editions is a line of books that are as fun as they are informational, the intention behind Viva is very serious—these are books that are truly helpful and intended to enhance people's lives.  Viva Editions was founded at a pivotal point in time, as the stock market plummeted, the economy softened, and businesses tightened and cut back.  Viva focuses on expansion, courage and joy in life.  In short, Viva is about the very best in the human spirit.  As publishers, they need to be aware of the different economic environment they are publishing in—and respond to what people really need.  Now is the time for fresh thinking and stripped-down self-help books that caused inspiration to spring into action.  These hard times can create community, and so they invite you into the Viva community.  Bring your ideas, questions, suggestions—because they want to hear from you!

Viva books open hearts and minds.  Viva authors are practical visionaries: people who offer deep wisdom in a hopeful and helpful manner.  You can be frugal AND fabulous.  You can be thankful for what you have.  You can take risks and achieve your long-held dreams.  Your relationships can be better than ever.  You can simply have more fun.  You can take a leap of faith and change your life, knowing it is never too late for positive action.
