I wouldn't say it's a book for beginning cooks - there is enough "judgment" in each of the recipes (in many she states "you may need a bit more of this, or that - depending on feel - and if, as an example, one has never made bread before, one won't know what "feel" of just-right, not too wet, not too dry bread dough means) that those with a bit of expertise can easily adapt and own.
I like also the lifestyle feel of this book - clearly it was a personal project for her, she has many stories and anecdotes that as fairly experienced cooks, my husband and I thoroughly-enjoyed.
No, it's not a "polished" read, but then again, given the title, it was never meant to be. But it does have great starter recipes broken down into easy pictures and steps, for a variety of foods (terrines, jams, ice cream) that heretofore in our family, at least, we used to buy already-made. A great, differentiated book for our kitchen library.
Easy to use, love the page marker. I will be making many more things from this book.
It's really written for people who love cooking from scratch, or people who are very into the new, "green, organic, foodie" movement that has been trending recently. The recipes all call for making everything from its most pure form. The pictures are lovely and easy to follow. They lend to the directions well. Many of the recipes are foreign ( to America) but the ingredients I have been able to find at my local specialty shops. That being said, this is a book for an adventurous, worldly eater- it is not at all your average American cookbook.
The book has two ribbon bookmarks in red and blue for easily saving recipes. I have read through te entire book and find now that I am just itching to get into the kitchen! The jams and marmalades are especially fun, as are the cocktails. The fresh bread section is also mouth watering. The teas section makes me long for a garden of roses and honeysuckle. This book really details how to make almost everything you could ever want to eat.
A great cookbook that can get you ready for this one is Homemade by Clodagh McKenna. It's slightly less adventurous and wonderfully delicious!
