Format: Hardcover
Alice Waters is the chef/owner of Chez Panisse in San Fransico. We had lunch there about 25years ago - sauteed prawns with garlic and parsley - (it's in the book) and has never been forgotten. There are no glossy pictures and most recipes can be found in other books but the reason this is so good is that she has tweaked the method to improve the results so her panna cotta is the best I have ever made as was the pappardelle - more eggs and letting the pasta dough sit at room temperature for an hour seems to be it. Even vinaigrette is improved by adding the salt to the vinegar and tasting before adding the other ingredients. Every method of cooking is covered so I have improved favourite recipes by checking how Alice would do it. This book has been out in the US for a while but this is british version - grams and litres - instead of cups which I think is easier.

I am an avid cook, with well over 35 years of experience of cooking every day. I have masses of cookery books, many of which are rarely looked at. But THIS one is a 'go to' regular, as I can never remember pie-crust proportions, and welcome inspiration on what to do with, say, duck legs (braise them, and serve with peas). It is honest, clear, in impeccable taste. Like Alice herself! A cherished memory is of eating in Chez Panisse 15 years ago, and using this book brings back some of the magic. I am so excited that she is bringing out another volume in October this year (2013). You won't regret buying this if you want to read, dream and cook. If you want glossy pictures and lots of modern quirky recipes that are new just for the sake of it, look elsewhere. If you want reliability, great taste, and a gentle, authoritative friend in the kitchen, then go ahead and buy!

I've known about Alice Waters for years and always wanted to read and cook her food - but I really don't get on with American weights and measures. I mean I've only just mastered metric. So finding this beautifully written, wonderfully produced book with metric weights and measures was incredibly exciting.

Its one of those books that is as good to read in bed as it is to use in the kitchen. Inspirational and practical in equal measure.

There is no photography which seems to trouble some reviewers, but the book's so wonderfully written that images and flavours flood in with every recipe.

I bought this book for my mother because she only does very basic cooking and wanted to become a bit more adventurous and learn a bit more about cooking. The recipies are great nut there aren't any pictures which makes it difficult to flick through them. A real pitty because she doesn't use it as much as she'd like to.
