Even though the measurements for the recipes in this book are American...it is a fantasctic collections of writings and menus. I must say that the "kitchen rituals" section of the book where Mr. Tanis chats about personal moments in the kitchen is charming and endearing not to mention useful!. The menus divided into seasonal selections are mouth watering and can be easily converted to English standards. Its as good a book as Mr. Tanis's prior volume, which was listed in the Chronical's top 50 cookbooks of all time. A Platter of Figs & Other Recipes
I eagerly await his next!
