I really like this book because it has great pictures of the food and includes many vegetarian recipes. If you want to make wonderful bread from scratch, you can learn it here, including making a sourdough starter. I don't buy many cookbooks anymore, but I thought this one was worth it.

best book ever. love every recipe I've tried - and I've tried 11 recipes so far. He has recipes for breads, breakfast, tartines, soups, salads, entrees, and desserts. Healthy ingredients. Quick cooking/preparation. Beautiful pictures. He doesn't pad and fluff the text up with superfluous nonsense like American Test Kitchen books. Actually, the descriptors are minimal. The bulk of the text lies in the instructions, which are great. There aren't paragraphs of impertinent narratives and comments that have no impact on your preparation of the meal, which is awesome. Kudos to Coumont for many reasons. It is a straightforward recipe book full of delicious, interesting combination of flavors you wouldn't have envisioned on your own, which enliven and broaden the palate. Simple servings can be delectable, healthy, satisfying, and yes...beautifully plated!! I'm so glad I happened on his restaurant in Philadelphia and discovered his goods and the cookbook. Dessert section is fantastic. I love baking. I have been repeatedly disappointed with American desserts and American-written dessert cookbooks. The European patissiers, I will more likely trust. Coumont is a genius.

Wonderful book with wonderful recipes and photography HOWEVER the recipes are NOT exactly the same as in the restaurant. No surprise there I suppose? I wanted to learn how to make The Chia Seed Muffins, but the recipe in the book is soooo different from those on sale, yet STILL delicious. The book is beautifully bound and looks as good as the stores do.

I have always gone into the restaurants and enjoyed their food. The book does not disappoint. And as usual, great food comes from simple recipes. Nothing complicated. And gorgeous photos.

I'm always hesitant to purchase a cookbook from a restaurant. The recipes are often incomplete or too complicated. That's not the case with this excellent book. The recipes are spot on and are accompanied by beautiful photographs. Now, if I could only replicate the restaurant atmosphere at home........ :). Get this book.

Loved eating at Le Pain Quitidien a few months back while visiting a friend in Brussels. This books is perfectly translated with recipes ranging from whole and hearty to light and easy. Breads, spreads, salads and meatloaf. This is not one you will regret having!

Not practical for family fare, but I'm enjoying the weekends when everyone picks a dish and we try it--for brunch, for a snack. etc. We ate at the restaurant of the same name in Manhattan, and got interested in reproducing some of the dishes we ordered there.

I found a lot of the recipes were just not suited to what I could effectively prepare at home. I love the Le Pain Quotidien cafes, but I really found it too difficult to duplicate their incredible cuisine even using this book as a guide.
