Review quote

This book ... is as rich in flavor and flair as his previous two titles; the pared-back approach certainly doesn't imply any constraints on his creativity.--Nigella Lawson I love the pared-down premise of this book. John has created clever ingredient combinations that demonstrate the power of simplicity in cooking. The photography is lickable, too...--Karen Barnes, Editor, delicious. magazine, delicious. magazine
