Editorial Reviews

Review


“This is a terrific book… it’s full of the kinds of recipes that you know you’re going to cook over and over. There are no extravagant constructions here or even fancy ingredients; there’s just the kind of casual café food that makes even small meals pleasurable.” — Russ Parsons, Los Angeles Times

“You can’t always have Christine Moore around to explain her perfect blood orange tarts, but Little Flower may be close enough.” — Jonahan Gold, Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer

“If anyone can convine us to make pumpkin bread pudding with salted caramel sauce in 90-degree weather, it is the woman behind Pasadena’s infamous sea salt caramels.” — Jenn Garbee, LA Weekly

“We’re set to prepare and devour everything in it.” — Charlott Druckman, The Wall Street Journal

“An amazing cookbook.” — Michaela Pereira, KTLA Morning News

“I’m just left to wonder which recipe I’ll choose next: the carrot ginger dressing or the buttermilk pretzel rolls or the ginger molasses cookies or the (super) green soup… so many yummy things!” — Lemuria Bookstore Blog, Lemuria Books, Jackson, MS

“What I like to call the easy, breezy cookbook… focused on simple, pared-down recipes perfectly fit for quick weekday meals.” *#8212 Fiorella V., Gather Journal

“I am in love with the book.” — Living Tastefully

Format: Hardcover
I have been cooking for 25 years, and the most important thing I've done is to find what I call "default" cookbooks--cookbooks that are stripped of pretense and excess explanation, and that work from a solid core of recipes and techniques I can always use in everything I cook. That is a long sentence. Sorry. Anyway, those books include Hazan's Italian Cooking, Batali's Cooking from My Three Italian Towns , and Alice Waters's Chez Panisse Cafe book ( because I do not have staff to do her more formal Chez Panisse book), and Lidia Bastianich's Italian-American Table.
I think this book now stands with those classics. I read it cover to cover and kept saying, out loud to no one in particular, things like "She is so smart," and "How ballsy to say it that way," and "She thinks just like me--the good me!"
For what it is worth, I think this is a must-have cookbook for the modern kitchen. Now: Give me that cookie!

Format: Hardcover
I'm a recovering cookbook addict, and have lately had success weaning myself from buying yet another 200+ page glossy, coffee table cookbook put out by a famous chef. Takes too much shelf space and besides, I found myself rarely cooking even one recipe. But I couldn't resist adding Christine Moore's gem to my collection. I'm a fan of her cafe, and my family loves her lemon-thyme salad dressing. I justified buying the cookbook with the thought that I'd at least make the salad dressing at home. One week later, I've made 2 of the recipes, which have been met with accolades from family and friends: the cauliflower leek soup and the lemon-lentil soup. Easy, clear explanations and delicious. I highly recommend this cookbook--even if you think your bookshelf can't take another one!

I read a review on this book before purchasing and I thought that the Salted Caramel recipe and some others would be included. It is unfortunate that many of the recipes call for their Salted Caramels but only provide information in purchasing them. This is not acceptable to me in a good cookbook. Also, there are several mistakes including the wrong page numbers and the Pumpkin Bread Pudding left out what you do with the eggs. My book also came to me damaged and soiled. The box was perfect so obviously it was sent that way. Not happy with the whole situation.

Christine Moore has collected her best recipes from her much-lauded cafe in Pasadena, CA and showcased them in this great new cookbook. Each recipe has a photo and a mouth-watering photo at that. I resist buying new cookbooks because of space (and budget) considerations, but broke down and bought this one because it looked so good. So far, I have only made one item, the granola. If the other recipes are as good, this book is a winner. The granola is pretty much the best I have tasted. The recipe was spot-on accurate. I can't wait to try some of the soups and the baked goods. As I said to a friend, the book contains recipes for the stuff I like to make: salads, soups, breakfast treats and pastries. I can't get to the cafe very often, but now I can bring the cafe home. YUM!

Not only is Christine an amazing cook who has created a beautiful welcoming space to eat her delicious food in, she is the heart center of that space. I would eat there every day if I could. Now I can make those same tasty delights at home. The book is as gorgeous as the chef behind it all! You won't be disappointed with the book or the cafe - buy the book, eat at the cafe, become a fan.

"I think careful cooking is love, don't you? The loveliest thing you can cook for someone who's close to you is about as nice a valentine as you can give." Julia Child

I think Christine Moore has given us a lovely Valentine. I'm not a cook but I read this cookbook from cover-to-cover. The cookbook was like a lovely story and I was completely engrossed. Now, I will give the cookbook to my husband who will delight me with Ms. Moore's yummy dishes.

Format: Hardcover
I love visiting the Little Flower cafe. It's always hard to choose from the daily offerings, and the same will be true of the recipes in this book. I have post-it tabs sticking out all over the edges of the book, and really want the weather to cooperate so I can simmer up some Carrot Fennel Soup. I'm not much of a baker, but several of these recipes are too inspiring to resist--Foley Cake looks scrumptious, and that Pumpkin Caramel Bread Pudding? Swoon... the photos are simple and alluring. Great addition to my cookbook collection.

I had to buy another copy of this great book to send to a friend. I read the intro with tears in my eyes, and joy in my heart. I live close so I have the pleasure of dining at little flower often, lucky me. If your one of the unlucky, run out and buy this beautiful little book. The easy to follow recipes and fantastic photo's make this book a real treasure. You might want to buy two, and share with a friend.
