Yes, there are some recipes that don't appeal to me at all, and some I might be tempted to try but seem too time-consuming or complicated or require ingredients that are costly or not readily available at average American supermarkets. I am not so dedicated that I want to drive to a major city to find ethnic ingredients which are invariably pricy, but that may not matter to some.
As you might expect, there are quite a few classics as well as some I never heard of that will be fun to prepare. I think the book is definitely worth Amazon's price.
