Coffee table food porn,
This review is from: Quay (Hardcover)
In my opinion Peter Gilmore cooks some of the best food in the world so when I saw the book reviewed last week while In Australia I phoned home to get it ordered (it is £50 cheaper from Amazon UK than in Australia). It is beautifully produced photographed and imagined, When he says many of the recipes in this book are quite complex he means it. If you have the staying power you won't have the energy and if you did you'd never find the ingredients but if anyone wants to candy some white violet flowers I have some growing on the verge opposite. Of course they only flower late February early March and are at their most fragrant towards the end of that 3 week season. Get the picture? Oh and as for abalone - seen any around lately.

there are loads of these kind of books around at the moment noma, bentley, alinea, under pressure to mention a few. they aren't really for the home cook are they. They are what you'd call a chefs cook book for people that are interested in how these things are done and can look at a dish and take things from certain dishes and apply them to there own style of cooking.

Mr. Samuel T. Luckett says:
phil is absolutely right this book is beautiful, the food is spectacular, if you know which suppliers to contact then abalone is easily souceable, obviously in your small home kitchen you only have access to Tesco, im pretty sure if you buy the Delia book you can make something you like, maybe a lovely piela, these books are for chefs, not amateur have a go cooks

We are all, it seems, agreed that the book is beautiful so that's good. I am not sure whether abalone is souceable (sic) but you can certainly buy it (French and Australian) and I am a great fan of Delia's but cannot find the dish to which you refer. Did you mean a pie of some sort? As for Tesco. It's a wonderful institution. It keeps all sorts of people out of Waitrose.

"bought restaurant cookbook of famously avant garde restaurant only to discover it's full of famously avant garde recipes. I am in no way a moron".
