Read in May, 2011

I loved everything about this book - the mix of narrative, photos, and recipes was just right. It is so authentic that I could even hear Ripert's voice when reading the narrative. I especially liked the stories of his travels - from the Caymans to a farm just north of New York City and to Europe. I also enjoyed the bits and pieces about Le Bernardin. I have tried the carbonara, a risotto recipe, and a couple of salads ---- they were easy and wonderful.

I took a long time to read this, savoring every page, and often reading parts aloud to my husband. Now I am sad that I have finished it but glad I will have it as a reference.

This is a great book for a "foodie" who likes more than just recipes in a cookbook. This is a perfect blend.

By the way, I sure hope that new AVEC ERIC shows are being filmed.
