4.0 out of 5 stars so nearly a vade mecum to the new cuisine, 6 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Coco: 10 World-Leading Masters choose 100 Contemporary Chefs (Hardcover)
This could so nearly have been a perfect guide to the new protaganists of the cuisine of the new millenium. However the editors have played safe in respect of one or two of their contributors, to the unfortunate detriment of the whole. Compare and contrast the numerous erudite observations of chefs Alain Ducasse and Rene Redzepi to the uninformative and rehearsed comments from for example our own Gordon Ramsay (presumably only included to try and boost UK sales). What is of more importance of course however is the cuisine and the thinking behind it. From that viewpoint this book, although not readily accessible to most home cooks with regard to necessary equipment or technique,gives a very valuable snapshot of what is happening in contemporary cuisine across europe today. And how refreshing it is to see so many young chefs with such vibrant and exciting ideas. Recommended if you already own a waterbath, vacuum packing machine and pacojet; perhaps more of a coffee table book for the home cook without such equipment.
