5.0 out of 5 stars Tanis does Tanis and its brilliant
This is the second book by David Tanis ( a platter of figs was his first). What makes this so good is the same formula, interesting recipes, easy instructions, excellent pictures and of course his stories. Working from a small if not micro kitchen he creates exceptional meals. His use of fresh ingredients artfully put together is a winning combination. He is part of the...

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.

This review is from: Heart of the Artichoke and Other Kitchen Journeys (Hardcover)
This is the second book by David Tanis ( a platter of figs was his first). What makes this so good is the same formula, interesting recipes, easy instructions, excellent pictures and of course his stories. Working from a small if not micro kitchen he creates exceptional meals. His use of fresh ingredients artfully put together is a winning combination. He is part of the organic fresh food local movement of Alice Waters and wonderful it is.

A great book for every kitchen

5.0 out of 5 stars even though..., 4 Mar 2012
This review is from: Heart of the Artichoke and Other Kitchen Journeys (Hardcover)
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!
