About Wolfgang Puck
Austrian-born Wolfgang Puck began his formal training at age 14, inspired by his mother, Maria, a hotel chef. Encouraged by a friend, Wolfgang left Europe in 1973 at the age of 24, having already learned his craft as a classically trained French chef in the master kitchens of three-star French restaurants. After a stint at the restaurant La Tour in Indianapolis, Puck made the move to Los Angeles in 1975, and became both chef and part owner of Ma Maison, which quickly became a magnet for the rich and famous - with Puck as the starring attraction. Fame and acclaim quickly followed with his unique combination of dynamic personality and a culinary brilliance that bridged tradition and invention. Wolfgang has changed the way North Americans cook and eat by mixing formal French techniques and Asian- and California-influenced esthetics with the highest quality ingredients. Over a span of twenty years, he has founded a virtual empire of dining establishments, including 12 fine dining restaurants, and the newer Wolfgang Puck Bistro, Express and Cafe locations across the United States, into Canada and Japan. He has authored six popular cookbooks, and his weekly syndicated newspaper column, “Wolfgang Puck’s Kitchen,” appears in more than 30 newspapers throughout the United States and Canada, with a combined circulation of more than 5.3 million.
Wolfgang Puck Worldwide, Inc. (WPW), a privately held corporation, includes a rapidly growing international franchise of the fast-casual Wolfgang Puck Express restaurants, consumer products, book publishing, television, radio and internet programming, and other licensing and merchandising projects.

This cookbook has given me so many different recipes for my pie maker. I absolutely enjoy trying the recipes when ever I get the chance. I was never a good baker until now. My husband loves my pies that I can now bake. Thank you for this recipe book which gives so many varieties of main course and dessert pies.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have a Blast with the Pie Maker!
By Shopper Pat
from Toronto (Ontario)
This book gives you a wide variety of useable recipes that would appeal to the average family. You can tell there is a very knowledgeable and imaginative cook behind this effort. However, Marian seems to have overlooked muffins (other than 2 gluten-free recipes) which is my main use. This book truly explores the delicious fun potential of the appliance. The many tips and cooking time suggestions are invaluable. The book's author is Marian Getz, not Wolfgang Puck as mentioned in the product listing.

full of ideas
By Bag Lady
from Estevan Sask.
Easy recipes and some clever ideas also very nice visual to go with each recipe.I have rated this with only 4 stars because I feel a spiral binding would be so much more convenient.

I find this cookbook handy just for the ideas let alone the recipies. The recipies are not complicated and you can improvise as well.
from Lethbridge, Alberta
This is a great companion book for the Wolfgang Puck Pie maker. I was pleasantly surprised with the recipes. I love to bake from scratch and the recipes were simple to follow, and they turned out great!
