Disclaimer #1: This is 80's food. Think butter and cream and LOTS OF IT. But for the occasional splurge or a decadent dinner party, you can't go wrong with some of these recipes. I have also just reduced the amount of butter and fat in the recipes and they have turned out just as well, if not better.
Disclaimer #2: If you don't know what clarified butter is and don't want to figure out how to make it, be forewarned there is a lot of it in this book. I suppose you could just substitute a high heat/smoke point oil, but it wouldn't taste as good. Maybe you could just buy Ghee from Whole Foods, but I have never bought Ghee myself, so am not sure how it compares to homemade clarified butter.
Disclaimer #3: There are no photos in this book.
Despite all of these facts, I still think this book is worth having.
I made the Chicken with Goat Cheese and Mint to rave reviews. The Wild Rice with Leeks is fantastic. There are many recipes here that Ina Garten has in her books with a tweak or too, such as the Wild Rice Salad. Ina is a big fan of Anna Pump, so if you are familiar with Ina's books, you will see much of her style of simple good ingredients (and lots of fat) in Loaves and Fishes.
Nice addition to my collection.
