This is a good book of sophisticated-seeming recipes that generally take about an hour to prepare. The techniques are pretty basic and the recipes that I tried were easy to prepare. My quibble is that it's almost too sophisticated for family use - I'd use these for a dinner party, but not for daily use with my kids. Also, there are a lot of ingredients in many of these recipes, and many of them are not pantry staples. She addresses this in the Intro, stating that you'd use the book by looking fo ...more

Ehhh. I mean, this book had some good tips, but, like other reviewers, I found this book to be a little too pretentious. I mean, guinea fowl??? Skate wing??

Though the instructions, ingredient list, and accompanying images are sometimes confusing (about half the dishes I cooked looked nothing like the picture), these recipes make delicious, relatively quick, exciting food. Like an earlier reviewer, I did find some of the dishes too rich for regular weeknight consumption. Especially good were the braised sausage with gorgonzola polenta, zucchini, basil, and chile linguine with creme fraiche, and asian noodle soup with shrimp.

The recipes sound good, but this is too fussy for a week night supper book. I was expecting 30 minute meals--I don't want to fuss with fancy ingredients at 7pm. I truly wonder if the author has this schedule (as I really do)because when I am home at 7 I am reaching for the funyuns not the capers. Exhaustion is not a good kitchen mate.

The recipes are not simple; mostly strange foods, and I love trying new things. I was looking for something I could make quickly when I got home from work, not a recipe for something I never buy like quail.

The salmon / prosciutto /potato entree, the chicken & edamame soup, and beet & goat cheese recipes were delicious!

I don't think the recipes could have been completed in the time given, none of the recipes sounded appetizing...and I didn't have any ingredients ready on hand!!! FAIL!
