Praise for Kitchen Wizard Flexipes

My new cookbook, Kitchen Wizard Flexipes: Simple Time-Saving Secrets for Tasty Global Cuisine is released!  Just in time for the holidays!

I’ve been asking the food industry experts for the comments, and getting many extremely enthusiastic and positive responses.  The founding Executive Chef of Bridges Restaurant (famous with the scene from the movie, Mrs. Doubtfire) even said “Flexipes may become a common culinary term as well as the hottest new cookbook to hit the shelves.”

See what the food industry experts are saying…
