The best book I've bought for a decade. Probably the best for the next decade too. A rare cook book in that it sets out how to do and make so many things from scratch, that would only otherwise have been gathered from years in professional kitchens. Does so without being a nerdy textbook, nor a coffee table picture book.

This is my most recent cookbook purchase after having the great pleasure of dining there. An amazingly beautiful, thoughtful and original cookbook with which I hope to recreate a bit of the meal I enjoyed.
