5.0 out of 5 stars
It is a complete cookery course, 1 Nov. 2008
As the other review suggests, this is like Delia smiths complete cookery course, but the difference is it's from possibly one of or the best chef in the world. (yes yes ferran Adria but thats on another level of strange and wackiness). There are around 800 recipes and the chapters are seperated into ingredients. There are no photograpghs, but this to me doen't matter as the recipes presented aren't ones which need a photograpgh so you know what it should look like. Because of their simplicity and how the recipe intructions are precise. The food in question may be the basics, but it is the best the basics can get. There are a few slightly more complicated recipes and a few extravagant ones invovlving truffles and foie gras - about 10 out of the 800. An excellant book to purchase. 5 stars. All Delicious.
