Product Description

Review

"Massimo Bottura is the Jimi Hendrix of Italian chefs. . .he takes familiar dishes and classical flavors and techniques and turns them on their heads in a way that is innovative, boundary breaking, sky kissing, and entirely whimsical, but ultimately timeless, and most importantly, deliciously satisfying." - Mario Batali"A pioneer of modern Italian cooking, Bottura possesses both a deep respect for local traditions and a drive to keep blowing them up." - The Wall Street Journal"Massimo Bottura is a luminary of the culinary avant garde." - The New Yorker"Aheady trip into the thoughtful mind of the three Michelin starred culinary genius." - Slate.com"The book is a wonder - full of photos of food, setting and whimsy. Fascinating windows into the workings of one of cooking's greatest minds." - LA Times"Bottura is part of a new word order of chefs, intently focused on their terroir, but global in reach." - GQ"Town & Country" Holiday Gift Guide Pick 2014"Travel + Leisure" Holiday Gift Guide Pick 2014"Food & Wine" Holiday Gift Guide Pick 2014"

I pre-ordered this book from Amazon having seen Massimo Bottura on Masterchef and i haven't been able to put it down since it arrived. It gives a real insight into the mind and creativity of one of the world's greatest living chefs. It is also a beautifully produced object and feels like a future classic. I will definitely by buying more copies to give as gifts this Xmas.

Not great in my opinion .
Not great photos or really worth the price.
I would probably have sent it back if I hadn't thrown out the box.
