Used-Very Good. Few chefs in America have won more acclaim than Suzanne Goin, owner of Lucques restaurant. A chef of impeccable pedigree, she got her start cooking at some of the best restaurants in the world L Arpege. Olives, and Chez Panisse, to name a few places where she acquired top-notch skills to match her already flawless culinary instincts. A great many cooks have come through the kitchen at Chez Panisse, observes the legendary Alice Waters, But Suzanne Goin was a stand-out. We all knew immediately that one day she would have a restaurant of her own, and that other cooks would be coming to 'her' for kitchen wisdom and a warm welcome. And come they have, in droves. Since opening her L.A. restaurant, Lucques, in 1998, Goin s cooking has garnered extraordinary accolades. Lucques is now recognized as one of the best restaurants in the country, and she is widely acknowledged as one of the most talented chefs around. Goin s gospel is her commitment to the freshest ingredients available; her way of combining those ingredients in novel but impeccably appropriate ways continues to awe those who dine at her restaurant. Her Sunday Supper menus at Lucques ever changing and always tied to the produce of the season have drawn raves from all quarters: critics, fellow chefs, and Lucques s devoted clientele. Now, in her long-awaited cookbook, 'Sunday Suppers at Lucques, 'Goin offers the general public, for the first time, the menus that have made her famous. This inspired cookbook contains: 132 recipes in all, arranged into four-course menus and organized by season.

More than that, however, she offers advice on how home cooks can truly enjoy the process of cooking and make that process their own. One Sunday with Suzanne Goin is guaranteed to change your approach to cooking not to mention transform your results in the kitchen. '
Publishers Weekly, 2005-10-10 At Lucques, one of Goin's two Los Angeles restaurants, the Chez Panisse alumna cooks special Sunday fixed-price menus. Whiling away a wintery Sunday evening over Beets and Tangerines with Mint and Orange-Flower Water; Australian Barramundi with Winter Vegetables Bagna Cauda and Toasted Breadcrumbs; or Herb-Roasted Rack of Lamb with Flageolet Gratin, Roasted Radicchio, and Tapenade; and a G?teau Basque with Armagnac Prunes sounds lovely. Preparing it, though, sounds like a hard day's work, and the organization of recipes in seasonal menus rather than grouped by appetizer, entr?e, etc., leaves readers with little flexibility. Goin's recipes for hearty, vegetable-heavy, Mediterranean-style dishes such as an appetizer of Rago?t of Morels with Cr?me Fra?che, Soft Herbs, and Toasted Brioche; and First-of-the-Season Succotash Salad with fresh lima beans and watercress are clearly written. But most dishes are all-day affairs: Roman Cherry Tart with Almond Crust and Almond Ice Cream incorporates several components and follows on the heels of either Veal Osso Buco with Saffron Risotto, English Peas, and Pea Shoots, or Halibut with Fingerlings, Fava Beans, Meyer Lemon, and Savory Cr?me Fra?che. Goin does say, "Feel free to mix and match," but she seems to have missed Sunday's "day of rest" concept. 75 full-color photos. (Dec. 1) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
