This review is from: The Art of Cooking with Vegetables (Hardcover)
I am sorry to say this, as I have been waiting for this book for quite a while.When it arrived I was very disappointed. The recipes are excellent (I have already tried one) the lack of photographs is a big no no to me. I like to see what the finished dish should look like, or at least have some inspiration on how best to plate it up but to use collages representing the colours of the food on the plate? Come on! A case of "the emperor's new clothes" if ever I saw one It feels like there were not enough recipes to fill a book but someone was too cheap to employ a photographer. Definitely a book for the kindle!

the same here, looked for shots of his great cooking as experienced at L'Arpege, he is good on collages but not for recipes users.

How come pictures are more important than the quality of the recipes? Of course I value pictures in cook books too, but to rate it low because of that? Tsss! Cooking is also about your own creativity. And dishing up vegetables doesn't have to be rocket science...
