There are two things I love about this cookbook. First, the cookbook actually begins with prose and tells a story about food, which will make you want to put down the book and run into the kitchen to create what is he describing. The second is that his recipes and approach are more about making you a better cook than having you follow something exactly. His recipes teach you how to combine flavors and show you multiple variations on one recipe. Once you learn one basic recipe, you can learn all sorts of variations which eventually become part of your own cooking toolbox.
