Tomatoes are my favorite vegetable, but only in season, when they are so sweet and juicy that they can almost quench your thirst as you eat them. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly dazzling 1 Sep 1999
By A Customer
"Visionary" is not a word I tend to use for chefs, but there is no other term for Trotter's achievements. What boggles the mind isn't the full recipes themselves, necessarily (although they are quite mindblowing), but the little discoveries throughout, like poaching garlic in milk before roasting (!). Be warned: committing to preparing any one of these recipes is opening a VERY LARGE can of worms. Be warned further: it's definitely worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars incredible chef and book 26 May 1999
By A Customer
this book is an incredible source for techniquues and motivation. Trotter is of cousre a perfectionist and his passion for cooking is seen through this book. Each component is carefully balanced so that a full and maximum flavor is achieved. Also, don't be afraid of the book, you don't have to follow each recipe step by step-let it inspire you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proceed at your own risk ... 12 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This book invaded my life and my home for well over two years. Trotter is mad, of course -- try getting that peekytoe crab or salsify at Ralph's -- and he will insist that you use every pot and pan you own. The recipes always work, if you have eight hours or so -- they will taste great and you can actually make them look just like the beautiful photographs. The great thing is Trotter teaches you so much technique and gives you so many building blocks as you struggle through his epic recipes. Hardly a week goes by that I do not use something I learned from this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars I can not believe.......... 2 Dec 1998
By A Customer
No one has reviewed this book? It is truly reflective of the style and peculiarity of a great chef. Charlie Trotter does not ever hold back in giving the customer great presentation, flavorful food, and the freshest ingredients you will find this side of Alain Ducasse. You can see and feel the influences of Joel Robuchon in this spectacular assemblage of what most chefs agree to be the worlds sexiest foods
