A note on the difference between this title and Joanne's earlier book entitled Weir Cooking: Recipes from the Wine Country (found at Joanne's web site):

"My new cookbook focuses on the fabulous ingredients found in the California wine country and uses some of my most favorite ingredients: olive oil, garlic, tomatoes, figs, lemons and herbs. My first TV companion book, Weir Cooking: Recipes from the Wine Country has been out of print for years, and this book includes those original recipes plus 50 brand new recipes, new headnotes, cooking tips, and of course fantastic wine pairings. Even the beautiful photos have taken on a new life! You will absolutely love cooking from this book!"

Beyond that ...

The book's content is superb, and there are some terrific, mouth watering food images inside, so it's a bit of surprise that they chose such a dowdy, washed out photo for the cover (it looks like a boring photo from the 1960s/1970s). They probably chose it because it includes wine and so goes with the title, but any number of colorful, impressive food images found inside the book would have been better than the one they chose -- so don't judge a book by its cover, as they say.

Joanne Weir has certainly done it again by producing yet another wonderful cookbook. The beautiful pictures definately do the recipes justice! Everything is so fresh and delicious. Joanne's writing makes the cookbook even more enjoyable. Two of my favs include the goat cheese gallette and the panna cotta! Out of all the cook books I have, I always find myself reaching for Joanne's. Please keep writing!

I have been a fan of Joanne's for 15 years! Live from Cleveland, Ohio I cannot say enough about Jo-Jo's latest book! Outstanding! She has out done herself; a big hand to Ten Speed Press for a beautiful book! From Joanne's Golden Gazpacho to her Pineapple Sorbet with Fleur de Sel, and everything in between it is absolutely scrumptious! I adore Joanne's passion for food and method of teaching people that the world is full of wonderful flavors! She is a fourth generation cook and that innate instinct shows with this collection of recipes. This is a must have book for anyone who loves food!

I ordered this about a year ago based on the reviews. This cookbook has been a staple in my kitchen ever since. EVERY recipe we've tried has been amazing. And I've probably made 15-20 different things... but we tend to gravitate towards a few that we really like.

I really like that I can go through the book, find several recipes for the week, and make a grocery list with lots of overlapping ingredients. I use up the food I buy easily instead of trying to find a way to avoid waste. I love the use of fresh herbs in her recipes. And based on what we normally eat I can generally find several recipes that don't require a run to the store. I have also been able to cut the recipes in half with no problem (there are just 2 of us). Just enough for dinner plus leftovers for DH's lunch the next day.

I have started buying this book as an "add-on" wedding gift for our friends.

If you're kind of on the fence and like fresh ingredients that give big flavor, please give this book a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

I have really enjoyed using this cookbook. The recipes are full of fresh seasonal ingredients. There are a lot of pictures which I really like in a cookbook so that I have an idea how the dish is going to look once I am done. Plus the pictures are just so beautiful and mouth watering. I have tried some of the recipes but not all and found them very easy to follow. The Rice Olives were a big hit at a party I made them for.
