This review is from: The Art of Cooking with Vegetables (Hardcover)
These people complaining about no pictures have no imagination, and are typical of our cook book porn culture vultures.
A picture of a finished dish is like hearing the punchline to a joke you haven't yet heard.
i can't tell you how many times I've been served up laughably bad looking dishes by people trying to recreate a book's photograph, when the flavours were great and the cook should have just plated up as they saw fit.
I am a professional chef and the subtle touches in this guy's approach are inspiring, the collages are beautiful and if you appreciate the man and his cooking, the book is a must.

Hi Joe

I hear what you say, but as a professional trainer I know that the learning style of the majority of people is visual, ie use of pictures etc. So its not that these people have no imagination, its more a case of being able to understand it better through seeing the dish as an image
