85 Chefs 28 Dec. 2010
By Aly - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I received this book as a Christmas gift after having dined in one of the restaurants. I used to cook professionally and my friends thought I would enjoy this book. What a waste of $60. The recipes are extremely complicated using a great deal of unavailable ingredients, not portioned out correctly, one called for almost a gallon of ingredients to make a sorbet for 4 people, others called for other recipes whick were not provided and some of the photos had garnishes that were not listed as an ingredient. It looks like the authors took the recipes from the professional kitchens without testing or adjusting for non-professional use and just stuck it into the book. It did not do justice to the chefs or the food. The pictures are beautiful but overall I found the book poorly written and pretentious. Probably one of my least favorite cookbooks ever!

Inspirational and Educational, 7 Jan. 2011
By durangok - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought a copy of this book for myself and found it to be a grand and beautiful tour of some of the favorite creations of the great chefs. I have eaten at several of the restaurants. The book allowed me to relive the experiences while relaxing at home. The title, 85 Inspirational Chefs, reflects the focus accurately. It's about the creativity and variety among the chefs. It is not "85 Great Recipes for you to Create at Home." Although the recipes are included, the primary use of the book is not to take it home and attempt to duplicate these extremely varied and often complex recipes with a great variety of ingredients that are not all widely available. It's an artistic and educational experience meant to provide insight into the genius of these chefs. The photographs are beautiful! It is not meant to compete with The Joy of Cooking or any of the many books written by a single chef. I purchased additional copies for some of my friends.

Beautiful book - may be more useful as a travel guide to best restaurants 12 Jan. 2011

This is a beautiful cookbook. I'm not sure how many of the recipes we will make. It is definitely useful as a "travel guide" to the best restaurants/chefs.
