This review is from: Manresa: An Edible Reflection (Hardcover)
Several years ago, I had the pleasure of walking into the garden of Manresa at 7PM with seven friends and beginning a meal that ended around 2 AM. It was my first at chez Kinch, and memorable in so many ways.
Tonight I opened my copy of Manresa, an edible reflection, and had a similar feeling: that I was about to become enveloped in an extraordinary experience. I stopped after the amuse to cook and serve dinner, and resumed for a bit after.
This is no "cookbook." It is an inside out look at an extraordinary person, an artist who realizes his visions. I know I will want to consume the entire meal, but all in good time.
The photographs are stunning, the writing, engaging, but most of all, the man is captivating.
