The Food Processor Bible

 

OVERALL RATING: 4.5 out of 5 stars

OVERALL REVIEW: Most people really loved this book for it's wealth of information and recipes, 82% of the reviews were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. However, there are a few points you should be aware of before purchasing this cookbook. It has neither photos nor nutritional info. All of the recipes are Kosher.

What The Food Processor Bible does have is over 500 recipes and hundreds of tips. This is more than a cookbook, it is an extension of your food processor manual. It offers clear instructions on what and how to process. There is general information on the different blades available for your food processor.

The lack of photos and nutritional info is perceived as a huge mistake by a minority of reviewers. Many others don't feel anything is missing; they purchased this cookbook for the many recipes and instructions and are quite happy with this product.

Many of the reviewers didn't even realize this was a strictly Kosher cookbook but if recipes including pork or shellfish are important to you, this may not be the best cookbook for you.

Overall, this is a great cookbook for those who are looking to optimize the use of their food processor.

 


Process This: New Recipes for the New Generation of Food Processors Plus Dozens of Time-Saving Tips

 

OVERALL RATING: 4.5 out of 5 stars

 

OVERALL REVIEW: 77% of the reviews are very favorable and coupled with a 4 or 5 star rating. Process This! has 150 recipes in addition to advice on how to prep and process food. This book has neither photos nor nutritional info.

The recipes presented are a little bit exotic compared to other basic how-to cookbooks. This was appreciated by many but definitely not all. Some felt that the ingredients were inaccessible. Products such as tahini, lemon grass and India relish are not staples in all American kitchens. If you are a bit more adventerous in the kitchen, this may be the best cookbook for you.

These recipes are meant to wow with their flavors but it seems little consideration was paid to calorie counts. If you are looking for a more health-conscious cookbook, this may not be the right choice for you. The included recipes for homemade mayo and stocks from scratch are well received by many but newbie cooks are not as likely to be interested.

Overall, this is a great book for cooks that are searching for recipes that are better than everyday fare. Process This! may not be the only food processor cookbook you'll ever need to own but it can certainly be a valuable addition to your collection.

The Best Bread Ever: Great Homemade Bread Using your Food Processor

 

OVERALL RATING: 4.5 out of 5 stars

 

OVERALL REVIEW: The Best Bread Ever is currently out of print yet still in high demand. A new copy will set you back over $100, but used copies can be had for a much more reasonable price. So why is this old, out of print book included on the short list of food processor cookbooks you should seriously consider owning? It is quite possibly the best instructional bread making book ever written, for food processors or otherwise.

86% of the reviews were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. Most reviewers agreed; the process developed by the author can and will result in the best bread you've ever eaten. This book is unique. Rather than taking a tried and true method and finding a way to use the food processor to make it easier, Charles Van Over has created a method that can only be utilized with a food processor. It breaks the traditional rules and creates delicious, consistent results. The bread will "wow" you!

The book has color photos of the finished products as well as black and white instructional photos to help you along the way.

The method described require a probe thermometer and scale. Although volume based measurements are provided, consistency is dependent upon the exact measurements made possible by a kitchen scale.

This is a great cookbook to add to your collection. It demonstrates that you can easily have fresh baked homemade bread without devoting a lot of time.
