“ . . . filled with beautiful rustic food photography and all the staple recipes.” —Kat Odell, Eater Los Angeles
“I was struck by how fully and faithfully a chef's personality can translate from restaurant to page. [The book’s] lavish presentation of unusually lovely photographs seemed just right. Silverton takes full advantage of California's vivid produce. Her book, like her menus, casts the universe as a luxurious garden. . . . lyrical and nurturing.” —Frank Bruni, Food and Wine
