Product Description

Review

When I received this book I flipped through it and my first emotion was disappointment: it features only a few pictures, and the recipes didn't look as interesting and innovative as I'd hoped for a book about California cuisine, written by one of California's greatest chefs (and California can showcase quite a few of those). Instead, it includes many French-style preparations and "Californicated" southern Italian staple dishes, most of which I already have the recipes for, being a great fan of Italian cuisine.

That evening I had a chance to examine the book closer, and my initial disappointment quickly subsided. Judy Rodgers is a person with meticulous attention to detail, from explaining the cuts of meat best used for her stocks with regards to the flavor they produce, to describing the desired outcome of roasting (canned!) tomatoes in words which more than make up for the missing pictures of finished dishes. She doesn't go for the easy option of substituting ingredients not readily available widely with the "least worst of" those conveniently pre-packed on supermarket shelves, but instead goes through great effort to "recreate" the flavor of the original, and often very local, ingredient(s) at home. It's a bit of an effort for the home cook, and quite a few of her dishes are best left to prepare on weekends and holidays where one is likely to have more time for cooking, although many others are quick enough to prepare for a weekday supper. Great emphasis is put on the selection of the freshest, highest quality (organic) produce available from farmers' markets. To keep this short, this book is for the dedicated home cook who refuses to settle for second best; the one who doesn't sacrifice flavor and texture for convenience.

This cookbook is perfect for someone like me--very interested in good food, more interested in cooking good food, and most interested in sharing food with friends. Even though I consider myself fairly knowledgable about cooking, this cookbook has taught me substantial techniques. The sections on tasting, salting and braising are excellent. The approach to food--trusting in food being good without over manipulation, constant interest, intense experiment and exploration, relaxed enjoyment, historical point of view--have been inspiring for me. I know this restaurant. I have had dozens of great meals there. Now I know better how she does it. Enjoy.

Unless you have a fetish for cookery books like myself, then don't buy. It's got some great recipes and having visited the cafe on a trip a couple of years ago, I know how great the food turns out. But It lacks pictorial content.
