My Thoughts 

Oh, this book is wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. It’s chock full of behind the scenes stories, photos, and recipes. 

My husband introduced our teen children, and I to Phil after he had watched the first two seasons (I don’t watch much tv and I don’t want to waste my time on bad tv or film when I have books that I want to read) and this, I believe, was in 2020 during lockdown, and well, much like Randy Rainbow, we fell in love with Phil’s show - his beautiful relationship with his parents, his universal kindness, his true appreciation of food,  and the magical filming that makes you feel almost as though you’re sharing in the experience. To me, Phil is a mix of Mr. Rogers and Big Bird - he is kind to everyone, and he appreciates things with the awe of a pure soul. 

On his show, he conveys his feelings beautifully with his expressions and words. My family and I wanted to see how that translated into book form and were very happy with what we saw here -  Phil’s Phil-ness comes across perfectly and the recipes all sound wildly appealing and not difficult to make if you're confident in the kitchen. 

A definite recommendation.
