it was ok

I bought this book during a major foodie phase, and, quite frankly, I wasn't much impressed. So far as I'm concerned, Roberts didn't impart any wisdom of which I wasn't already aware. It's a nice illustration of the important elements of cooking (knives, eating out, family, etc), but I didn't think it was worth the price I paid for it. There was also an awful lot of name-dropping and disbelieving awe on his part. That got really old. Really fast.

However, there are a couple of recipes worth slipping under your belt in this one, although none of them are his.
