I received this cookbook a few weeks ago and read it end-to-end in three sittings. Although Ms. Holmberg states at the outset that she was trained in Classic French cuisine, the book is not just a rehash of the French mother sauces and small sauces (if you are not familiar with these I'd recommend "Professional Cooking" by Wayne Gisslen), but a rethinking of the subject with nods to variations and flavors inspired by Asian, Mexican, African, and South American influences. Ms. Holmberg's writing style is light and engaging making this an easy book to read. Her "theme and variations" approach to classes of sauces and use of flavor combinations from different cultures will inspire your creativity and help set your cooking off in new directions. Her cooking tips will demystify sauce making and boost your confidence to incorporate sauce making more often in your cooking. I cannot speak for every recipe, but the first I tried, Tangerine-Brown Butter Vinaigrette, was a hit served with tilapia fillets on creamy mashed potatoes and turnips and again a few days later as a hearty pre-skiing breakfast over salmon fillets and fried eggs. These were certainly not flavor combinations I would have tried had I not read the book! It is definitely a worthwhile addition to a cook's library!

this book was a gift to a person who loves literature and I can't tell you how many times they have called me to thank me for the book. the book tells the history of unknow and known African American authors, their struggles and their works. The stories are excel lent and my friend says he hasn't even got to the poems, written by the the authors, trying to savory every part of the book. Highly recommended

This is an excellent book. This book is very deep. This book breaks down what has happened and is happening to African American athletes from the 1920's to present day. This book is very enlightening and I advise everyone to read it.

If you are interested in history and/or gardening this book is a wonderful adventure. You will learn about famous American writers and the trees and gardens that surrounded them when they lived. The author visits sites on a quest to be in the same environs that inspired Thoreau and many, many others.
