Format: Paperback
If you like cooking and/or Michael Chiarello, this is a great book to add to your collection. Much of the material was actually produced not too long after his tenure at Napa wine country's marvelous Tra Vigne, where he built the restaurant's excellent reputation as its chef before moving on to his current interests. As a result, there are a lot of references to Tra Vigne and his experiences there peppered throughout. That is not a bad thing; just a point to be aware of as, although this joint edition of "Oils and Vinegars" (formerly produced as 2 seperate books) predates his later cookbooks even thought it has a later publication date.

Anyway, if you are interested in making and cooking with your own infused oils and vinegars, he has demystified this and made it very accessible and user-friendly - something basically anyone can do at home without a lot of special equipment. His directions on process are right to the point and spare....just the info that is needed to do this succussfully based on his very estimed experience. His info on vinegar making is scattered throughout the various topical sections on vinegar and is sufficient to help you get it; if you want a serious artisan treatise on how to make and age fine vinegars, this is not the book and you would be better going to one of the early Chez Panisse cookbooks in which Alice Water's partner (sorry, I forget which one but I think it is the Chez P. Cafe cookbook...or else the Chez P. "Menus") provides such an in-depth artisan instruction on vinegar making using little oak casks and such that it frankly scared me away! That is why I say that Michael Chiarello's material in these volume is very accessible, practical and useful, oh, and a bit fun as well!

All the recipes you will need for making infused oils and vinegars. Recipes for the application of the oils and vinegars are also included. While some of these recipes may be a bit highbrow for the common palate, just looking them over will give you endless ideas for your own creations.

I recently bought the infused oils and vinegars book and it has great easy to make recipes to making your own infused oils, i did however find it very hard to read, it didn't have a good flow to it, so you really had to scan each page to find what you were looking for. however the recipes, once found, are really easy and really tasty.

If you have many cookbooks, you are probably looking for unusual things, and this fits the bill. The price is reasonable, and you'll find at least a few infused recipes you like. If you've ever seen Chiarello's show "Easy Entertaining" on Food Network you know that he really uses his own recipes to add layers of flavor and subtle hints to his dishes. I recommend this book, but only if you're seriously into cooking.

A slick publication with plenty of photos and tasteful recipes for some creative dishes . The recipes for actually making infused flavored oils and vinegars are few but all the different recipes using these flavored oils and vinegars makes up for it.

I bought this book for the express purposes of getting some good ideas of what to do with the flavored oils and vinegars - i.e. recipes.
I have several local, good resources to buy flavored oils and vinegars. I have tried to make my own, but I really do not have the room to store them. For some reason, I have found it difficult to find a good website or two that has good recipes. I have found mostly salad recipes and I wanted to expand to using them on cooked food - meats and vegs.
That said, this is a beautifully presented book with lots of good ideas and recipes. I have marked almost a dozen. Since I bought this used it was definitely worth the price.
