Review by

This book was wonderful. I learned a lot. First off, I am definitely not a minimalist, I'm more of a naturalist when it comes to plating style. There were a lot of techniques explained that I had never been exposed to. And the recipes in the back were quite helpful. I think I might have to buy this one.
