Beautiful book - impossible recipes,
This review is from: Pierre Gagnaire: Reinventing French Cuisine (Hardcover)
I was terribly dissapointed with my recent attempt to cook guinea fowl breasts described in this book. I am a professional cook and continually try new recipes that can be used to extend my repertoire. When cooking from a book I normally follow any recipe to the letter but I am afraid that the result of this dish was inedible. A splendid addition on the coffee table but which should never be relied upon in the kitchen. Too expensive. I gave the book away.

because you cannot cook the receipes does not make it a bad book! 90% of the chefs in the world couldn't even attempt to recreate Michelin starred dishes to the level of Gagnaire.
