As a cookbook, this is fantastic. The recipes are delicious and creative, taking breakfast (or any meal) to another level. However, I find the book too heavy on personal anecdotes, name-dropping, and profanity. Currence quite obviously considers himself to be 'Big Bad John'.

A chef including stories about themselves and/or their recipes can often make their book more relatable, even charming. John Currence would’ve easily pulled that off, if he’d left his massive ego at the door. Bragging about his drunken adventures with celebrity-chef friends was not relatable and constantly dropping f-bombs (especially in reference to his daughter) was definitely not charming.

Currence obviously has plenty of talent. He should've let it speak for itself; this book would've been profoundly better for having done so. Five stars for the recipes, zero stars for everything else in this book. ( )

I want to go to there.
Introduction: An ode to breakfast, including The Ten Commandments of Breakfast. Cute and funny introductions to the recipes.
Photos: Lots. And I'm really hungry for breakfast now.
Techniques: Good section on how to cook eggs in different styles, plus two "master" omelet recipes.
Recipes: If you can eat it or drink it for breakfast (or for breakfast-for-dinner) it's here and it looks amazing. I want to cook and eat every single thing in this book, but I also want to go to Big Bad Breakfast every single morning to start my day. This is one of those cookbooks I want to keep forever.

The South of the USA.
The first words when I think at these States of the USA: robust food, warm, sweet tea, lemonades, lazy times.

I have had the privileged for many years of spending time with a Kentuckian family located at just a mile and half from my house in the italian countryside and what I miss the most is the warm and great hospitality that they also brought to our area.

The first time I tasted an American sweet chocolate cookie thanks to them. A Paradisiac recipe.

Later I discovered the banana bread one of my favorite recipes, the pound cake.

What I appreciate the most of the Southerner desserts but in general of all the US desserts is that you can't fail when you bake them and this is encouraging also for someone like me not precisely a baker like the author is.

The South, we all know love to cuddle its people. If you look around it's all sweet. Sweet tea, sweet lemonade, honey cake...

It's a pretty robust food this one proposed by John Currence, in his book Big Bad Breakfast -The most important book of the Day - published by Ten Speed Press at the beginning of September.

He shares all his possible, authentic southerner enthusiasm for his work and for...his beloved breakfasts.

OK: it is true. The author remarks that the times are changed also in the lazy and tranquil South. So the stereotypical idea of a wonderful breakfast spent all together, chatting and wishing to each other: "Have a good day" gone from a long long while. People prefer a quick breakfast.

Experts of all the world considers breakfast the only meal where we should indulge because our body in grade to burn all calories introduced, or most of them.


Currence tells that the South is becoming as many other places in the world in terms of quality time spent at the beginning of the day all together at home for breakfast, a moment not anymore felt by people. Sure, work, different exigencies modified old traditions.

Currence explains in the book he opened many restaurants, BBB during the years in the South of the USA and his biggest dream would have been the one of create a special happy meal, the Breakfast Basket way for keeping a tradition alive with great food able to bring joy and happiness because breakfast is the most important and crucial moment of the day, but without any success.

The author will share with all of us in this wonderful cookbook of Southerners recipes able to let you put weight on just reading it, all the possible foods created for being shared, baked, cooked during breakfast.

Starting from the sweet recipes, passing through the power of eggs and their use in kitchen for creating a special and robust breakfast, and the idea of eating breakfast for...dinner with other special recipes, you will find all the necessary for comforting your soul, you...belly! and the ones of all your loved ones.

Every recipe is accompanied by its story. It can be an anecdote of Currence's family or the story of the recipe itself, because as we all know every recipe has a story behind and it is born for a special reason.



This book is for you if you love Big Bad Breakfast, this book is for you if you do care for your special ones, this book is for you if you want to present something special, if you want to bake wonderful dishes for breakfast, if you want that your breakfast can be remembered as a memorable moment from your children and grand-children and if you want to keep alive the tradition of breakfast.
This book is for you if you simply love life and you want to share it with everyone you love!

Breakfast. A meal I tackle at 10 AM, after being up for a while nursing a pot of coffee. But anytime, day or night, the foods of a proper cooked breakfast are my favorites.

This is the second breakfast book added to my shelf. The other one is more "healthy", more California, and more whole-grainy. Excellent when you want that kind of thing. Big Bad Breakfast is for food that fills you up, warms the soul, and keeps you going for a full day's work. While I might crack the other book when I have dainty house guests, this is the book when I feed myself and my cowboy friends.

Reading notes:

* Excellent TOC. All recipes listed.
* Good range of recipes
* Lively text
* Awkward page layout with the recipe appearing in varying places. It might be ok in the final ebook, not the ARC I have.
* Lots and lots of excellent egg recipes
* "German pancake" is a Dutch Baby
* "Livermush" is scrapple with some non-German spices
* Shrimp, oyster, and crab recipes but no fish. Odd. Fish for breakfast is pretty common where I grew up fishing.
* Home made breakfast cereals like frosted flakes and bran-nuts
* Good photos

Unless you are a cholesterol and fat fearing wimp, you will love this book.

I received a review copy of "Big Bad Breakfast" by John Currence (Ten Speed) through NetGalley.com. ( )
