This is simply amazing. It is the best cookbook I have ever used and allows me to learn and produce amazing meals. I am an average guy who does some cooking once in a while - I'm no expert - but this allows me to produce something beyond most restaurants. The instructions are simple and easy to follow and, unlike a lot of cookbooks, if you stick to the instructions it works perfectly.

Another aspect is that I have always held top chefs in high regard however, reading this gives you an insight into the level of dedication, work, science and art which go into every creation.

Anyone who likes cooking should have this book!

HASH(0xa95905b8) out of 5 stars The most detailed cookbook you'll ever read. May 26 2013
By JRock - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First off, I'm not at all familiar with the Chef and I'd never heard of this restaurant. Its hard enough keeping up with all the names in the US, much less Europe as well. Something about the intro video interested me and I pre-ordered the book. The food is decidedly British and I'm not entirely sure how to really explain what I mean by that. The ingredients, the flavor combinations, etc, just not exactly standard US fare. The pictures suggest very well executed high end cuisine. Then you read the recipes. Painstaking doesn't even begin to describe the level of detail and organization. Its the best written cook book I've ever seen- and I own Thomas Keller's full line up. The recipes are all split up by component, so you prepare a component at a time just as you would if you were working in a restaurant(I"m a professional chef and in the business you don't prepare a dish at a time, you prep the components individually). Also, the amount of detail and discussion that go into the individual techniques involved in making each dish/component are unlike anything I've ever seen. Recipes, just like menus, are nothing more than words on a piece of paper. The level of skill and precision of the actual cooking are what make them work and this book takes the idea of what a cook book can be to a brand new level.

HASH(0xa9590810) out of 5 stars Great cookbook; great restaurant Sept. 5 2014
By M. Hyman - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful cookbook from an absolutely fantastic restaurant. Every thing served in the restaurant is immaculate, with amazing tastes, textures, colors and presentation, and the book does a great job of explaining how. The book begins with a brief story about the chef, and, as with other books by top chefs, this gives a lovely sense of his personality and philosophy.

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.

Fantastic book.

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.
