More About the Author
"Neil Perry is one of the very few chefs whom I would consider to be a gastronomic 'global citizen.' With "The Food I Love" we get to experience his formidable knowledge and nonpareil sensitivity regarding the pleasures of the table, but in this case geared for those who love to cook at home. A tip of the hat to you, Neil, for this incredible work reminds me of why I got into this field in the first place!"-- Charlie Trotter

The only place I've found this book to be less than perfect - apart from the weight! - is in the index. I wanted a recipe for tuna urgently and, unbelievably, Perry's book didn't have one. Later, reading through, I found excellent content on grilled tuna with pesto - lovely! Yet, there was no entry in the index under tuna, it was - wait for it - indexed under "grilled". I don't know how many similar omissions there are, so I'm reading the whole thing and making notes. But, this is such a fundamental flaw that I am deducting a star for it. Hopefully, a second edition will do a bit of work on cross-referencing the index. Otherwise, a great book everyone should have.
So far everything I've cooked from it has been good. I don't go for some of the more pacific-fusion aspects of the contents, but for me its strength lies in is in very refined but regular, plainer home cooking. Beautifully presented and laid out, good value.
