    I found out about this cookbook from a column in the New York Times and decided to try it. According to the NYT column, the recipes are very good, along with being easy and quick to prepare. I have not as yet tried all the recipes, but the ones I have tried are outstanding. I would call the recipes “sophisticated” compared to most cookbooks for everyday eating these days. The recipes I have tried have been easy to prepare, and provide delightful and unusual flavors (at least by my experience). I look forward to making more of these recipes and plan to use this book for everyday eating as well as entertaining.

    Sorry guys, I looked forward to working on recipes from this cookbook due to the very enthusiastic reception it received from the media. The graphics of the book are truly beautiful. The recipes however, hmmm, try again. I followed a simple recipe for Apple Crisp and got a bad result. I now go to respected standard cookbooks for my Apple Crisp recipe and the old family favorite always turns out great. Really people, the recipes are NOT the stuff of greatness. Graphics? Great. Photography? Great? Recipes? You have got to be kidding

    I was disappointed by this cookbook. I know many people who swear by it, but I have found the recipes uninspiring. Many of the recipes sound interesting, but when I’ve tried them they have mostly turned out unappealing and flavorless. There are better books out there.

    So I spent all weekend and $$$ making the Cassoulet from this cookbook.

    When I got done, my mother-in-law commented that it tasted like “pablum”. She was being charitable. It was awful.

    I haven’t made too many more recipes from the book – this one was enough to scare me away.
