While this is a fantastic cookbook to flip through and makes a excellent conversation piece -just leave it on the coffee-table and see how irresistible it is to pick up and talk about- don’t expect to pick it up and start cooking right away. The ingredient lists are chock full of things I have never purchased or things I wouldn’t know what to do without a cookbook like this one. There are several beautiful pictures although I could have used a few more. I like the organization except that the sauces are added on at the end like an afterthought when they should couple with the recipes they are used with. I am comfortable in the kitchen and love to try new things so I’m sure I’ll be using this cookbook more often. Overall this is a beautiful book that just about anyone can use. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review through Blogging For Books.
