We will NOT review nor recommend 5 IN 5 FOR EVERY SEASON

5 in 5 For Every Season 
By Michael Symon
with Douglas Trattner 
Clarkson Potter/Publishers

     I am not a follower of the television show “The Chew”, so I am not familiar with Michael Symon.  But his cook book offering of meals with “five fresh ingredients that cook in five minutes” really sounded like something that was going to be a real asset to my schedule.

     As I went thru Mr. Symon’s book, I realized that his idea of a “quick” meal wasn’t the same as mine!  Most take a lot more preparation time that I take in preparing my main dish!  And the “five fresh ingredients” weren’t the only ingredients in the recipe.  He uses a lot of the other ingredients are not standard items in my pantry nor ingredients that my family would be willing to try.   

     But I was most disappointed when I found that the cook book contains recipes that  include wine and/or beer and/or beverage alcohol as an ingredient.  We condemn the consumption of alcoholic beverage in any form and for any reason.  Therefore, we will not endorse nor recommend this book.
