5.0 out of 5 stars My most amazing and inspiring cookbook ever, 3 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Alinea (Hardcover)
Unlike other reviewers I do not think that the very sophisticated and inspiring recipes in this book are impossible for the home cook. But they are complicated, for sure. Sometimes even incredibly complicated.
But the descriptions are extremely accurate, the photography is fantastic and I particularly loved the 'to assemble and serve' paragraphs that end each recipe. Though many recipes are also too complicated for me as an advanced amateur, I dare say that that I succesfully made 8 dishes from this wonderful book at my own 2008 Christmas dinners.

Grant Achatz is a fabulously talented chef and his book Alinea is highly recommended to advanced home chefs. Incredible photography makes it inspiring and mouthwatering at the same time, even if you don't do any of his recipes at all.

My mother has given my father a Sous Vide machine, vacuum machine and the whole range of bags for Christmas - now we need to find out how to use everything. My father is a fabulous cook, a former Dentist (i.e. incredible attention to detail) with a fab talent for cooking and a v good palate. Now that he is finally retired he does all the cooking whilst my mother watches (in anticipation). This book for his birthday in January sounds great and hence the review has been well received. Can't wait to try the bounty!
