5.0 out of 5 stars
A work of staggering genius, 10 Dec 2010
For those who gave this book 1 star, you really need to have a long, hard look at yourselves. This is a masterwork. I still go back to the stories, even when i'm not cooking. I have cooked a higher percentage of the recipes in this book (and book 2), than from any other cookbook. His enthusiasm is infectious and his understanding of taste and flavour, unsurpassed. The poached chicken recipe I probably cook once every 2 weeks, and have done for 10 years - it never fails to delight.
