"It is like a little bible.... It is a beautifully made book, as well as very useful... Amazing."
"A stylish little cookbook . . . a seductive object, beautifully proportioned and designed, but also remarkably comprehensive. After covering basic kitchen skills, The Basics zips through an overview of savory cooking, then switches to baking and desserts. But while most general cookbooks would stop there, The Basics plunges onward into contemporary cuisine."
—Jonathan Hayes, The New York Times Magazine

I bought it the French version "La Base" a few years back when I was in Belgium, knowing full well I couldn't read all of it (I learned all my French via Tin Tin.) It's food porn at its finest (and a lot less heavy that The French Laundry Cookbook.)
I purchased three copies. I plan to give them as xmas gifts. One to a novice cook, one to an experienced cook and one for me. I love the book.
Dollars well spent!
