I don't really care, though I wanted to say it up front in case you wanted to do what I did which was read everything these two women were ever involved with!
The photography is beautiful, the stories with the recipes are interesting, like letters from a girlfriend telling you what she made for supper last night. I love the feeling I get when I read the recipes and when I make their food. As I have said in another review they can get pretentious but this book seems to fit with that foodie superiority better than the handbook sized volumes of the series which is meant for "home cooks".
This stunning book is beyond that description and yet at the same time it totally fulfills it as well.
The women (who are real-life BFF's) cook in the small studio on two apartment size stoves without a microwave, very little counter space and a big table that is where they dine and prepare.
It's not a large space, just enough for two cooks, really and lets you know that everything in the book can be handled in the smallest kitchen without any trouble.
The food ranges from simple (reminding me of a lot of Nigella Lawson's first books) to a bit complex (not going to be making homemade pasta anytime soon, sorry) but all the recipes are doable by a seasoned cook.
This is not a cheffie cookbook, though it does have some cheffie elements, it's still on a "cook" level.Read more ›

All told this book contains fabulous recipes, beautiful photos, and practical recipes. Added bonus: lots of tips and tricks! This cook book would be a welcome addition to any kitchen.
I read through the table of contents, and checked a few recipes. I'm getting one for me.
This book is a collection drawn from the 6 smaller Canal House books. Recipes are clustered around seasonal themes and fresh ingredients. Nice illustrations. (A hardbound cookbook looks nice, but will it last?)
My daughter really likes the book. She's made a few meals from it already. Her comments are that the instructions are pretty well complete - no advanced skills needed - and the prep/cook times are very accurate.
