A great cookbook to read, with recipes for basic recipes deeply explored. Picked up a few key techniques here for making the perfect quesadilla, and also one of my favorite bits of cooking advice: Never cook with wine you cook with wine you *wouldn't* drink, obviosly; but more importantly, never cook with wine you'd *rather* drink!

i liked this in theory, but it turned out a bit too condescending. like, in the "criteria for quality" category he questions "is it loaded with flavor?" "is there a bright flavor?" "is the rice paper moist not limp?" - i don't think the goal of this book is to really teach the very first cooks, but there are recipes that take 25 ingredients to complete and some good techniques and then 3 pages on the quesadilla. it just doesn't all work together. oh, and there's no real order, so you have to rea ...more

I ordered this book because of a David Rosengarten spread in Food and Wine called "7 days a week", all the recipes were pretty amazing and fun to make. "Taste" was pretty disappointing to me, its more about presentation and giant pictures than actual recipes. Plus when someone says heating cream will give your quiche a "sexier texture" it grosses me out and I feel embarassed to own the book.

I always wondered what the heck happened to David Rosengarten. I picked this up forever ago when he was still a regular on Food Network. He gives a compelling background on each of the dishes he writes about and includes enough anecdotes to communicate his love for preparing and eating delicious food. I need to pull this one out again soon!
