“A marvel of a book. An encyclopedic monument of common sense, dedicated to honest produce, natural, uncontaminated and fresh. The food is simple, inventive, often surprising—dishes that one creates daily by fiddling around in the kitchen, but rarely finds in cookbooks.”—Richard Olney, cookbook author
