This book seems very useful. The recipes truly are for home cooking, but elevated home cooking. The type of beautiful food you would want to serve your friends without all the crazy high technique that is in a lot of current cookbooks. I also felt his love for his family from this book. You could feel the joy he gets from cooking this way for loved ones.

This book is a must for anyone who loves food as well as for those who wa ...more

A beautiful and more personal coffee-table style cookbook from one of the world's most accomplished chefs.
Simple and elegant meals inspired from his country weekend get-aways with family and friends.

I'm a fan of Jean-Georges, so I liked reading about what he and his family like to cook and eat at home. Recipes are pretty simple (as advertised) and easy-to-follow. Nothing really mind-blowing, but I walked away with about a dozen recipes I plan on trying out.
