really liked it

A fair to good cookbook. Many of the recipes are made to seem more complicated than they really are. Some ingredient snobbery is also present. I understand that not every walnut is a walnut, but I'm also not going to order vintage carpathian walnuts at like $100.00 per pound. Otherwise a nice introduction to the art. Although some of the recipes are too contrived (see Pho).

A fair to good cookbook.
