This has become my all time favorite go-to cooking book! Although the format differs from the traditional cooking book, with recipes buried in paragraphs of descriptive text and the magazine glam shots of prepared dishes are replaced with simple sketches, the philosophy and simplicity of the foods suggested in this compendium of gastronomic knowledge is astounding. I'd highly recommend her roasted root vegetable dish (a little oil, salt and some honey?) along with her homemade vinaigrettes and salad concoctions. Oh, Alice, one of these days I promise to visit you in SF!
