This will be a marvelous coffee table book, however, not very practical. The photo's are amazing, the recipes are above and beyond what one would serve unless it is a spectacular dinner. This is a book to dream about food over, not prepare supper. I am glad it is part of my library, but I have many books that are more useful.

I got this cookbook on Earth Day at an event in NYC (and 100% of the proceeds sold that day went to charity!) and I absolutely love it. I have made the fried chicken which is out of this world, and a couple of really delicious salads, plus a breakfast frittata. I would have done more but my mother took it from my apartment last time she visited because there was a bunch of recipes she wanted to try - which says a lot because she's a foodie! I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone looking for some great ways to prepare vegetables you find at farmers market and you're not sure what to do with - I cant wait to try the parsnip soup myself! Plus there's a really great intro by Nell Newman, that moved me to get involved in my own local food movement!
