Loved this book! Nothing very complicated - just lot's of simple twists and extras that make basic cooking turn out great. Adds a lot of polish to basic techniques w/an occasional smirking remark about American culture. A nice section on salads and soups. A very detailed section about vegetable preparation. Many things that I can do (a few that I can't, but can aspire to like how to flambe). My family has noticed the difference- they don't dread when my turn for cooking comes up: Nicoise salad, stuffed artichokes, and "properly" roasted chicken. Really a nice book of how to cook rather than just reciepes.
