5.0 out of 5 stars ..., December 11, 2000
This review is from: The French Laundry Cookbook (Hardcover)
And you can't put it down, if you're a Foodie like me. The photography is gorgeous, for starters. I have severly damaged my copy by licking the stunningly detailed photographs. Thomas Keller's food is truly artwork, and the editor is to be commended for their excellent taste in putting this book together.
The text is a nice blend of the practical (including techniques as basic as vegetable prep) and utterly fanciful (garnish and sauce techniques that are uncommon outside $150/person restaurants). The five recipes that I have tried have all been exceptional, and assume only a moderate level of kitchen experience and a good working knowledge of basic technique. These are *very complex* recipes. I usually do one of the items with the rest of the meal coming from other, less fussy, sources. This is Tweezer Food taken to a genuinely tasty end, unlike some presentations that just look "good enough to eat".
