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?"

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!
