The recipes are complex and have a lot of ingredients, but that is what makes them taste so wonderful.. Don't leave anything out! Fortunately here in California the ingredients are all available at our neighborhood grocery. My husband jokes that even the most simple recipe in the book takes at least an hour to prepare, and it's true. You think, "This looks simple; it can't take very long," then it does take very long. But it's worth it. By the way, my husband is able to use the book just fine, and he is definitely a novice cook.
Believe it or not, my husband and I have been to France and Italy, and nothing we ate there was as good as the recipes in this book. We also enjoy the cookbook Fields of Green by Anne Sommerville, (who took over Greens aftrer Deborah Madison left, I think), but this is our favorite of the two. Happy cooking! Happy eating!
I personally am not a vegetarian, but these recipes take your vegetables and taste buds beyond your wildest dreams. I would recommend this cook book to anyone who likes cooking and eating fine food. If you're looking for easy recipes that take 10 minutes, you'll have to settle for hamburger helper or kraft macaroni and cheese... this is not the place for you! But if you love cooking and love trying new recipes, this is one to add to your collection.
Since I am such a fan of the restaurant, and fancy myself quite the gourmet and gourmand, it is wonderful to have this recipe book in my arsenal.
I could not be happier!
