I enjoyed this book very much. The instructions and teaching that this book gives are excellent. With that said, it is not my favorite cookbook: the recipes are somewhat complicated. I highly recommend this book for the serious chef ( or the not so serious chef who wants to learn more about gourmet cooking)
