Reviewer: I was at the first book signing that chef Joseph Ciminera did in NYC yesterday. I have made two recipes from the book so far and they are fabulous. Thanks Laura M
“Chef Joe Ciminera is an accomplished professional and knows his way around a kitchen. For someone under the age of 35, Chef Joe continues to impress me with his masterful culinary style and fresh approach to haute cuisine. To date, I have not found any other chef who is as thorough, professional and as real as Chef Joe. Truly, this is amazing for someone without pretense. In this book, I am certain that you will be pleasantly surprised and enlightened with his insightfulness!” - Jason Gordon, president of 3 Alliance Enterprises Inc.
