The recipes are not for the faint hearted. These are serious recipes that are not trivial or fast to cook. But, unlike many cookbooks, the author does a great job explaining what you have to worry about -- what the timing is like, what ingredients are most important, exactly how you have to chill something from the cooking, how to tell if it is over or undercooked, how things are going to change during the process. And each comes with a lovely photograph showing what it is supposed to be like.
It really is fantastic food and a very fun, informative cookbook. Of course, I'm not sure that I will venture to source some of these things because the recipes are elaborate, but everything is inspiring.
Been a Phil Howard fan for along time, ate at The Square a few years ago....really good.
Waited almost a year for this on amazon as the release date was pushed back.
Solid recipes and methods.
Recommend buying for this price.
