This is my all-time favorite cookbook, hands down. The imagery is beautiful, the recipes are wonderful and everything about it screams farm fresh. This is no 'diet' cookbook, but if you want to eat good food, here's the place to start. It's the kind of cookbook I go to when I'm cooking for a special occassion, as the recipes are often involved and require more than just a few ingredients, but the pay off is always huge. Many items in this book have become household favorites.
