    Excellent collection of home style dishes from chef Matty Matheson. There are so many recipes in this book that I bookmarked. I loved all of the appealing photos and the anecdotes and introductory text. Being stuck at home with the whole COVID lockdown, allowed me plenty of time to browse cookbooks and try out recipes. One we tried from this one was a twist on nachos but made with fingerling potatoes instead of chips. SOOOOO Good.

This is my second cookbook from Matty Matheson, and of the two, this one is definitely my favorite.

This is my second cookbook from Matty Matheson, and of the two, this one is definitely my favorite. I have made several dishes already from this cookbook, and many other bloggers have made the Chocolate Zucchini cake and raved about it, so much that I need to make it and see if my husband can guess the secret ingredient! There are 12 different chapters: Bread; Stocks; Vegetables; Dips, Purees & Spreads; Dumpings and Pasta; Curries, Soups, and a Stew; Sandwiches; Fried Foods and Cast-Iron Cookery; Roasts, Bakes, and a PIe; Smoked; Grilled; and finally Desserts.  There are several recipes that mention Texas so of course, I had to check those out.  I considered trying the Texas-Style Prime Rib recipe, but I do not have a smoker. The first dish I made was the Broiler Pork Chops. This is practically a full meal unto itself with the tomatoes, onions, and bell peppers. The jalapenos gave it a nice little kick along with the cayenne pepper. This is super easy to make and can easily feed a family. The next dish I made was actually because one of the other bloggers said it was a nice twist on Chicken Fried Steak. I'm in Texas and many people here are serious about their Chicken Fried Steak so I was curious how this one would compare. It is also the first time I have made CFS, so it was a learning curve for me. What makes this one different is the lemon zest sprinkled onto the CFS before the gravy.  I do love lemon and might have gone a little overboard with the zest, but it was delicious. I do think I needed to tenderize the meat a little bit more, but for my first attempt it worked out well. There is one dish I want to try that I haven't made yet, The Infamous Cheesy Citrus Refried Beans. Tex-Mex is something you don't mess with, but I think an exception could be made for these beans. I might even try to make it with black beans versus pinto beans. I like to live on the edge! This photo is from the book and while you can't see the cheesy goodness, it is mixed in there.  Plus, you can use these for The Inedible Seven-Layer Dip. Ok, it really is edible but the photo in the cookbook has it in this narrow container that you couldn't scoop much of it out, or at least not get all seven layers on one chip. So if you have some holiday money and are just itching to buy a cookbook, this is one you might want to consider.

    Home Styyylee Coookeryy-yyy! Love this. Matty is my favourite. A cookbook with plenty of reading. Not literature, though. Maybe even less so than with the previous one. But many stories which cover the background of the meals and deepen the character of Matty. He is such a sweetheart. So real, so effortlessly funny. This is a cookbook, so what can I say. It's a very good one with nice stories and nice pictures. Home Styyylee Coookeryy-yyy! Love this. Matty is my favourite. A cookbook with plenty of reading. Not literature, though.

    I have a controversial opinion. I mean I have many controversial opinions but this one is relevant to the topic. When it comes to recipes, I am all about that standardisation life. And it's because I'm lazy. I don't want to be googling how many grams a stick of butter is (not relevant to this particular cookbook because whewhoo metric but recipes on the internet are troublesome) nor do I want to be googling whatever the fuck a rutabaga is because it turns out it's a swede.

Along with that I learned that arugula is just rocket and that romaine is cos lettuce. Anyway. There are some recipes I am looking forward to giving a whirl in this book. There's also some recipes that I ain't going to touch because I don't have a smoker, have no interest in investing in one or interest in smoking (not to say that it isn't a fascinating technique I'm just not that into me doing it personally) and others just because I'm lazy. I really am a lazy cook. But Matty Matheson really manages to inject his personality into his cookbooks, his intros are magic and I softened chuckled a bit to myself reading this. Also. Always here for a shoutout to the Flower Drum in Melbourne. Had one of the best meals of my life there a few years ago and my mother also had one of the best meals of her life there in the eighties. An institution.

    Matheson's second book, which was given to me as part of the Abrams Dinner Party, lives up to its title; the recipes are truly meant for home cooking, and many are just fancy enough to make you feel good about what you're serving while remaining down to earth and easy to make. One of my favorite chapters is all about broths or stocks, and I love that Matheson included several vegetarian versions. The sesame seed rolls from the bread section is a Dinner Party favorite, as is the chocolate zucchin Matheson's second book, which was given to me as part of the Abrams Dinner Party, lives up to its title; the recipes are truly meant for home cooking, and many are just fancy enough to make you feel good about what you're serving while remaining down to earth and easy to make. One of my favorite chapters is all about broths or stocks, and I love that Matheson included several vegetarian versions. The sesame seed rolls from the bread section is a Dinner Party favorite, as is the chocolate zucchini cake, which I'm planning to bake this weekend. I tried and liked the green olive tapenade and the one-hour bolognese. Pictured (on my blog) are the Hello Dollies (with recipe). I gave half the pan to one of my neighbors, and everyone raved about how good they are. I have the Italian beef (braised roast with pickled veggies served as a sandwich) marked to try soon. Recommendation: Matty Matheson is a well-known Canadian chef who tells it like it is, which makes Home Style Cookery fun to read and easy to cook from. Even if Matheson's style doesn't match yours, the broth chapter is not to be missed. Oh and that zucchini chocolate cake recipe too!

    I picked this up from the library and ended up disappointing. Despite the title and nice images, these are not recipes that will be rotated into my routine home cooking. These are advanced recipes that take a fair amount of time, skill, and special ingredients. The recipes are an odd collection and more meat-centric than I was expecting. I just think it's a disappointing cookbook when the thing I'm most looking forward to making is a vegetable stock. I just wasn't grabbed by many of the recipes I picked this up from the library and ended up disappointing.

I just wasn't grabbed by many of the recipes and a lot I couldn't make due to equipment requirements or ingredients I can't easily get. But I can see this cookbook working for some people. I recommend this cookbook if you live in Canada or are a more advanced cook and looking for something different than most other home cooking books. The book itself is well written, I just wouldn't recommend it to most people I know.

    Cookbook Club is a new club that I've joined (so far it's just got one member)! The philosophy of Cookbook Club is to take a cookbook out of the library and renew it max times for max inspiration and yummo purposes. This is the first inductee and it was a great place to start!

    At some point in this book, I think it's the introduction to the section on grilling, Matty Matheson writes, "That was a lot, sorry." This whole book is a lot and he doesn't have to be sorry! It's full of ambitious projects and cool guy in the kitchen, chef's knife tattoo, look at the expense hugeness of the things I have smoked swagger.

    While Matty's first book was almost a history lesson on his life, this new cookbook is more centered on creating a love for cooking at home. The recipes are more accessible than the first book, but still has enough odd ingredients or new skills to present challenges to the home cook. Excellent work!

    1. It’s the first Christmas gift my son ever bought me with his own money. He knew I wanted it and he made it happen and it’s perfect. 2. The One-Hour Bolognese takes way longer than the movie Almost Famous runs (with prep), and that’s a long a** movie, but that’s ok. The carrots are delicious.

    He has a very unique style, and his cookbook is definitely for the more confident cooks out there. I very much enjoyed reading his commentaries and have marked about half a dozen recipes to test before the holiday season begins.

    This would probably be a great cookbook for someone who has more time on their hands, eats meats, and owns a dishwashing machine (not me). This one is advanced, and I look forward to revisiting it under different circumstances.

    I rate cookbooks by how many recipes i would personally recreate. I don't cook a lot of meat and this book is heavy on that but i knew it would be. The writing style earned this another star and the veggie section as well. The recipes are pretty involved but solid. I rate cookbooks by how many recipes i would personally recreate.

    This entire cookbook is worth it specifically for the broiler pork chop recipe. The refried beans were also a winner. But those pork chops though...

    I liked the stories better in the first one, but the recipes in this one are a bit more easy for a mom who's short on time. Ex. The whole chapter on fucking sandwiches.
