      I won this book from the firstreads program, and am happy to have been chosen. It's completely different than any book I've ever read in that it was written very much like the authors would speak. It was a very quick ready 200-some pages which I easily did in two days. I enjoyed it largely because it gave me a look into another lifestyle. A lifestyle of thirty-something singles and couples who live in the city and love to party. A far cry from my simple country life with a husband, dog, two kids [...]

      I want to throw a dinner party. I feel like I have about 2 good years of experience cooking with good, seasonal, healthy food. I can honestly say I love cooking and I think I'm pretty good at it. I also love my friends, and I want to cook for them. I'm just not good at the planning part. Who do you invite? How many people? How do you time a meal? Do I have to do 5 courses? Which course comes first? This book cleared it all up for me. While it's got recipes and meal ideas, I probably won't use th [...]

      Not being a cook I still had a watering mouth after looking at the many recipes. I passed it on to my daughter the cook of the family. I still give it two forks up and can not wait to try some of the recipes.

      Forking Fantastic is forking fantastic!When a book says, "Put the party back in dinner party," I expect great and funny things, and the authors do not disappoint. Perhaps the book is best read with a glass of wine to hand (and mouth). I read the book in smorgasbord format, delving in here, diving in there, pausing in slight consternation (over the lamb, I don't do lamb--but hey, I might try it for a party. One could certainly use two meats at a big enough party!). I read the Intro, then jumped i [...]

      I must preface my review with the fact that I love throwing parties. We have people over just about every week. So, a fun book on throwing parties seemed like a great ideauntil you actually cook out of it. I enjoyed the writing, the style and the punk that Zora and Tamara exude. But, after making multiple dishes out of the book I cannot sincerely recommend it to anyone. I feel that they used too expensive ingredients for dishes that could be made for a lot less ($50 for 2 dishes; pot roast and a [...]

      First, I have to admit that I've been to Zora and Tamara's dinner parties and they are fucking fantastic. The book conveys well their approach to entertaining, which is relaxed and much more than fun. And, as a very occasional cook who is intimidated by the thought of feeding others, reading FF was inspiring. I found the menus and recipes clear and easy to follow. But, more importantly, the approach to how to plan and execute a dinner party was priceless. Great book!!!

      I received this as a christmas gift from my brother in-law, because I love to entertain. The book was geared at beginners, but it had some good things to say and was pretty entertaining. They lay on the "we're new yorkers and we're not afraid to drop the F bomb" schtick a little thick, but it did get some chuckles. And I can appreciate their stance that vegetarianism ought to include a bacon clause. So, I would recommend it for anyone that appreciates the art of cooking for friends.

      These girls rock. Love the tone, style, and sheer grace with which Tamara and Zora tickle us into wanting to host our own dinner parties (and not pull our hair out.) This book is for newbies, busy bees and people who want to own cookbooks that will make them laugh out loud.

      Heard these ladies on NPR and I thought they were great. The book has some good recipes and lots of advice for entertaining.

    • Kelley says:

      kudos to green tree library - the only library in the county that owns this one. GT rocks!

    • Alicia says:

      I like how this book gave you step by step instructions on how to prepare the meals for a dinner party and the recipes look delicious.

    • Rachel says:

      I like their style.
