A book I turn to regularlyReviewed in the United Kingdom on 31 August 2013
I am an avid cook, with well over 35 years of experience of cooking every day. I have masses of cookery books, many of which are rarely looked at. But THIS one is a 'go to' regular, as I can never remember pie-crust proportions, and welcome inspiration on what to do with, say, duck legs (braise them, and serve with peas). It is honest, clear, in impeccable taste. Like Alice herself! A cherished memory is of eating in Chez Panisse 15 years ago, and using this book brings back some of the magic. I am so excited that she is bringing out another volume in October this year (2013). You won't regret buying this if you want to read, dream and cook. If you want glossy pictures and lots of modern quirky recipes that are new just for the sake of it, look elsewhere. If you want reliability, great taste, and a gentle, authoritative friend in the kitchen, then go ahead and buy!

Love this book!Reviewed in Canada on 14 July 2019
Love this book. It teaches all the basics which I need and builds on that. Recipes are good! A little too much oil sometimes though!

This is one of those must have books for any serious cooks. Second only to Harold McGee's On Food and Cooking.

I love this book!!Reviewed in Germany on 6 February 2013
One can learn everything about making tasty food from this book. It is not the recipes that make this book special. It is the tips, the explanation and the passion from the author that make this book very special. I had a heard copy and used it a lot. I now buy the kindel version so that I can easily having it with me wherever I travel to.
