A must have for any foodie,
This review is from: Food for Thought (Hardcover)
Pure unadulterated "Gastro-Porn"!
A book to inspire, subtle combinations of flavours and textures, the beautiful presentation and stunning photography make this one of the most beautiful cook books I own. As a keen amateur there are many inspiration and ideas I can draw from the book but without a small army of chefs and the backup of a professional kitchen I would not expect to be able to exactly reproduce many of them at home. Rather this book gives ideas, presentations, flavour combinations and every single turn of the page reveals another stunning photograph each one making my mouth water as I imagine the aromas rising from the page. It is both a coffee table book of beautiful photography and a reference book of some 233 "basic" recipes used to build the dishes shown.
