Chef Gerber puts an emphasis on two key factors: flavor composition and attractive presentation. The 150+ recipes are designed to satisfy those used to high-end dining, but they are practical too: her marinades, ‘cheeses,’ and basic broths are well-explained, aiming to help cooks put together recipes with complex layers of flavor.
