"A snapshot of a culinary culture in flux, written with great charm by an outsize personality. . . These recipes are a snapshot of a North American culinary culture in flux, stuck between our deep-rooted immigrant past and the brave new world of Chez Panisse and its spawn. But though they may be outdated, Mr. Kerr evolved, pursued his passions and devoted his life to helping others. Happily, this cookbook reflects that man. Graham Kerr is always welcome in my kitchen, even though both of us have moved well past our culinary beginnings."
— Christopher Kimball, Wall Street Journal
"Graham Kerr was the original culinary showman, and The Galloping Gourmet was his stage. Flamboyant, passionate, handsome, and hilarious, Kerr's endless curiosity for foods of the world brought him legions of fans. This new edition of his cookbook is refreshingly robust, unashamed, and delicious, and reflects meticulous research. I can’t wait to dig into the recipes, and melt back into an age of culinary innocence."
—Edward Lee, chef and author of Buttermilk Graffiti
"Hurrah! The Graham Kerr Cookbook is back in print after more than half a century—now with his handwritten comments. Incisive recipes, a judicious mix of the familiar and the exotic, and pioneering photos helping the reader from one stage to the next mean that it’s aged remarkably well. Clearly it was Kerr’s expertise as much as his exuberance that made The Galloping Gourmet such a hit on television."
— Rachel Laudan, author of Cuisine and Empire: Cooking in World History
