As a cooking school grad and a professional cook for a number of years,the title of this book was intriguing. In a world that sees "instant" as good, time needs to be reintroduced into our routines, and Jenny Linford's book is a welcome edition for new cooks and seasoned chefs. I was pleasantly surprised at how well rounded the prize is. However, it is what it is with no apologies, and therefore may see a small audience.
