Good food. Some definitely a bit too simple for my tastes but I could see it being a good go to for someone starting out or wanting to have ideas for most ingredients. ( )

I enjoyed the writing style - simple and elegant. Makes me want to go through this book Julia & Julia style. ( )

A little too precious but there's no doubt about it - she's influential. ( )

Welcome addition: This is a wonderful addition to a cook's library and to a fan of Alice Waters. It can often be used as a reference book for cooking with fresh produce and ingredients. Many great ideas.
