Gay Talese, a great American journalist, and the articles in this book are insightful, sympathetic, and a keen reminder to those of us who love good writing. Recommended.

A beautiful and well thought out book in many respects, but I was disappointed that the recipes came with American measurements and no conversion charts. Surely, the publishers could have added the equivalents in ounces and grammes. For that reason only I wouldn't recommend this book.

I have tried three recipes and they have all turned out very good. For the beginner and the more experienced cook this book is a must. Something for everyone. I would highly recommend it. Excellent!

Very lightweight. The plastic base was fragile and could easily topple over, and I was looking for something more robust. But above all, it was faulty. Nothing registered whatever I weighed. Very disappointed.
