If you are participating in a Top Chef style food challenge, then you will find this book to offer some real inspiration.
On the other hand, if you are looking for some ideas for your meals at home, I feel like you’d be hard pressed to get value from this book.
Positives about this book:
- The photos are beautiful
- The recipes are detailed, thorough and come with detaled plating instructions
- Ms Kish is certainly a talented chef with skills well beyond mine
Negatives about this book:
- All of the dishes are so meticulously crafted and photographed that they present an incredibly high bar for the prospective home cook
- Andrew Zimmern back cover text states that this is a “must-have book for any home cook.” I have to disagree 100% with that statement. I would say that this book is fun to look at for the home cook and potentially an inspiration for the professional chef.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
