This cookbook manages to be perfectly balanced and extremely well written, a combination rarely seen in the "haute cuisine" cookbook section. While in many cookbooks you feel like you get mildly dumbed down versions of the recipes I feel as though the recipes shared in this volume were really served at the restaurant at one point or another. rather than needlessly overstyled for publication or simplified to protect the restaurants secrets. Mark Best's style is incredibly unique with signature dishes like "squid risotto" these arent things you would serve to your 6 year old but much rather to an epicurean party or perhaps to inspire your inner chef to adapt. My only criticism is that the recipe section is written almost chapter like in a single fluid story, if you want to deconstruct the dish or a single element of the dish then you have to piece all of the related information together from 1-2 pages of continuous information. The flip side of this however is that if your attempting to copy the dish exactly it will give you a much better sense of timing when putting it together but this will come down to personal preference.
