The Perky One's Travelogue  Mar 12, 2008
Rachael Ray's "$40 a Day: Best Eats in Town" is a travelogue of dining out on a budget,based on the Perky One's cross-country show. It's classified according to region (New England, Southwest, Midwest, so on) Ray sticks to major metropolitan areas... so don't expect anything off the beaten path. She's taking the freeway, not the scenic route.

"Best Eats in Town" is an oddity of sorts. Ray goes for generally fancy restaurants, provided they fit her less than $40 limit. It's not exactly going to the neighborhood diner. Heck, it would be refreshing if the Perky One went to a greasy spoon and ordered some cowboy coffee. The positive aspects of the book are that she does show how one can eat out on a budget, it's classified according to region, and Ray's writing style is breezy and enjoyable. She's the over-caffeinated travel guide.

Now,for the negative aspects. "$40 a Day" has some amazing omissions. She bypasses the interesting vegetarian restaurant Nearly Normal's Gonzo Cuisine in Corvallis,Oregon. In the Napa/Sonoma region she overlooks the Grateful Bagel chain of restaurants (yes,bagels are named for Grateful Dead songs),the Taste of the Himalayas in Sonoma (one can get a delicious,exotic lunch there for only $11),and breakfast places Butter Cream Bakery and First Squeeze in Napa. In the Wine Country, Ray sticks to restaurants that have wine lists. There's nothing edgy. Or different. Let alone economical.

"Best Eats in Town" leaves one hungry for good eats. Better to hit the road with Jane and Michael Stern's "Road Food" or with Alton Brown.
An index would have been nice  Sep 27, 2007
I've had this book for a few years and used a recipe in it again last night. It reminded me that if you want to return to recipes in this book, you'll have to keep track of where they are. There is no index, and recipes don't appear in the table of contents either. I've wasted far too much time paging through this book to find what I want. Write the recipe titles on post-its and stick them to the appropriate pages, or note the recipe and page number in the table of contents. Something! Other reviewers bemoan the book's grammar and spelling errors... I wish the editors had paid an indexer. Big oversight.
Good Selections, But Few Per City  Mar 27, 2007
Before I opened Rachael Ray: Best Eats in Town on $40 a Day, I made a mental note of four places where I have taken people who raved about the experience and food at these low-cost venues. I decided that I would check to see if Rachael had spotted these sleepers as well.

The first is a little hideaway in Cambridge where I often bring friends, family, and out-of-town guests for great beer and food called Grendel's Den. Everyone raves about how great the place is and ask to be taken back on later visits. Rachael found it, too, but was low on money when she arrived so she mainly had a beer. But she enjoyed meeting a Harvard lawyer there. As a fellow Harvard lawyer, I'm pleased she mentioned that aspect of the Den. I've been going there for over 30 years and have loved every visit. The food, Rachael, is better than the draft beer. Come back and try it!

The second place was in Rome, where everyone I know loves to eat the fried artichokes at Pompiere. Yes! Rachael spotted it and ordered the right dish. That's pretty impressive when there are so many great, inexpensive restaurants in Rome.

The third place was one I found when one of my sons was in graduate school at Bennington in Vermont, The Apple Barn & Country Bake Shop. Yes! Rachael ordered the required apple pie.

The fourth was to enjoy wine, bread, and cheese in Europe. Rachael figured out this is a great thing to do in Paris. You win, Rachael, you do know how to pick great, inexpensive meals and snacks.

The book is also filled with lots of color photographs and a few recipes of mostly simple dishes. If you have seen lots of her shows, you'll feel like you are reading through a well-prepared scrapbook.

The main drawbacks of the book are the following:

Even major metropolitan areas (like Amsterdam, Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Paris, Philadelphia, Portland, Rome, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, and Washington, D.C.) sported only three or four choices. You could obviously do a while book on each one.

Tiny towns (Cooperstown, Grand Canyon, and Sedona) get just the same amount of attention.

In the bigger areas, you could spend the better part of the day driving from one locale to another. In the big cities, you could spend an extra $40 a day in parking to get to some of these spots and stay there for a meal. There's no attempt to integrate the eating into a reasonable day of sightseeing.

This material is already very dated. With time, it will be less valuable.

There's not much logic behind the recipes that are selected. You could get more complicated ones from any of Rachael's recipe books.

So what's my advice? Borrow the book at the library if you are planning to go to one of these cities. Check to see if the places are still in business, look up how far apart they are, and investigate whether there's free parking or public transportation available at modest cost. And look forward to some wonderful times and good meals!
best eats in town  Feb 7, 2007
i enjoyed the Tv show very much and i am a big fan of rachael ray, with the shows not available on DVD the book was the next best option,
The book goes in to deatail about the towns and restraunts she visits but sadly does not metion how she achieved the goal of $40 a day
other tan that is it a great book to read before you go traveling
good but could have been better  Dec 4, 2005
I really like the upbeat personality of Racheal Ray as she finds some good food deals here and abroad. I really wanted this book because I love to travel and thought this would be a great companion for when I am in the locales covered. The problem that I have truly with the book are minimal. My expectations were higher, I thought that there would be more pictures of what she ate, and more of the scenery she took in while travelling. I didnt realize that most of the book would be a written commentary on each place the food was at, and how she knew this or that patron, a bio on the owners, or why she chose the spot. I liked all this but I really wanted to see the food and (even though this would eventually be inaccurate) how much her total tabs came out to for each meal. I did appreciate that she chooses diverse cuisine and the standard favorites. She included some recipes which were decent enough but not great pics of the food to accompany it with. For example I loved her Portland Maine lunch on tv- this large, juicy lobster roll that she had trouble picking up with huge pieces of meat, but in the book she just mentioned that for lunch she had one helluva lobster roll. Another example is the enchilada and eggs she had for breakfast in Laguna Beach, the book shows a small picture of it with the recipe, but on the show it looked mouth watering.
I agree with other reviewers, this book is a good companion but does nothing for the TV show. I would recommend the show over the book any day.
