I enjoyed going through this cookbook. Recipes are written in easy to understand terminology and don’t call for anything exceptionally unusual. Gorgeous, colorful pictures accompany just about every recipe. I enjoyed the background stories that accompanies many of the recipes, they made the cookbook very personable. I loved the section called Fun-damentals, which is filled with tips and techniques and humor. The one thing I would suggest for improvement is to include cooking and prep time.
