That said, it was amazingly well done. The pictures are gorgeous. The steps are laid out so that you could do it, if you had all day to cook and all the fancy equipment and ingredients. The essays and the adventures in cooking were interesting to read. And its not a bad thing that the recipes are intricate.
Like, mindblowingly so. You know how when you cook you usually put a bunch of things together to make o This is not a practical cookbook for the home cook. You know how when you cook you usually put a bunch of things together to make one thing?
In this books recipes, you do that like 5 times and then take those resulting 5 things, put a little bit of it on a plate in a decorative manner and you get art. My husband says it actually makes you want to eat there, because you'd never be able to replicate that stuff at home. Oct 24, Ariadna73 rated it it was ok Shelves: food. The pictures are HD and beautiful, but this is really a book of art, not a book about food. The dishes are utterly complicated and require so much work that only a highly skilled professional can dream to emulate a few of them.
This book felt like something written in another planet, and for some reason killed all my desire to visit the restaurant mentioned in it, if such place exists. However, as I said, the pictures are great and it is a colorful and beautiful book.

Reviews "Just when you think you know everything about one of your closest friends, he surprises you with anecdotes, reflections and insight. French cuisine is in Daniel's blood, but this bookthe most personal he has writtengoes well beyond the traditional rules and codes of French cooking. It's an intimate look at Daniel as a chef, and a vivid portrait of Daniel as a person, highlighting the art and science in his iconic and regional cooking, and the humility that guides everything he does.
Mastering techniques, and ultimately creating harmony, is what Daniel accomplishes brilliantly in this stunning book. I'm inspired by the exquisite photography and also by the riveting essays by Bill Buford that highlight the talent, curiosity, sense of hospitality and the legendary generosity of Daniel. Thoroughly grounded in classical training, passionate and talented, Daniel has created an exciting, personal, and innovative cuisine in his multiple restaurants and has become a leader in the extraordinary rise of American cuisine of the last 20 years.
