This is a cookbook that lives up to the media mentionings, positive reviews and hype. The pictures are luscious; the recipes are great for someone who is learning to cook or a (pardon the pun...) seasoned chef. It never assumes anything. It's not condescending or assuming and Thomas Keller went to a lot of trouble to sound sincere and accessible. This is my "go-to" cookbook now and has crowded out the other 200+ I have collected. It has emerged as a stellar favorite! You will never regret purchasing this cookbook. And if you get a chance - go to his restaurant...it's an inspired cookbook with emphasis on family style. Which means - even for people with a small household - you get the benefit of making a meal to share or a meal that can go in the freezer or vacuum bags. Cook once; eat twice. I AM TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH this CONCISE, inventive and fresh take on comfort cuisine. My family loves it, too. Buying more right NOW! p.s. It helps you with technical info, too. If you don't know how to break down a chicken or string truss a roast - you will learn all these handy tricks!
