I became a fan of Caprial Pence's which watching her cooking show on PBS. I own all of her cookbooks, but because this was the first cookbook that I purchased by Caprial it remains one of my favorites. The Lamb Shanks with Wild Mushroom Sauce, Beef Stew with Polenta, and the Raspberry Lemon Curd Tart are dishes that I regularly prepare when entertaining. Friends still talk about the Roasted Leg of Lamb with Hazelnut and Gorgonzola Cream Sauce that we served for Christmas dinner. A real winner!
Caprial's Cafe Favorites

I refer to this book over and over again. The Flank Steak with Green Peppercorn Aioli is a favorite! Great on the grill; make lots of the rub and store it so you can make it anytime. The Bread Pudding is another winner. The entire book is fabulous!
Best meat entre' I've ever had!!!!!

I used Caprial's Beef Tenderloin with Mushroom Sauce for an important dinner party. It was the best entre' I've ever had..even at an exclusive restaurant. I thought the sauce would be a lot of trouble, but it wasn't. It was very worth the effort. My dinner party was a great success!!
Five for five!

I usually consider finding one winner recipe to qualify a cookbook as a success. So far, Caprial's is five for five! Fabulous, easy food. I must have all her books.
Our new favorite cookbook!

We bought this book through a PBS pledge-drive (while we were watching her cooking show, of course). It has totally added spice to our lives in the kitchen! Some TV chefs make cooking LOOK easy -but Caprial actually makes the recipes easy enough to use. Enjoy!
