So far I've tried two recipes, the one of the cover and the "monday night chili" - both recipes strangely turned out very similar, and the chili was not very reminiscent of chili. The recipe on the cover turned out more soupy; more like a stew than what's pictured on the cover. The information about brazing and deglazing is good, I just don't feel the recipes SO FAR have impressed me. The flavorings are not very complex, although to be fair I've only tried two - so I will write another review when I've tried more! However, it's been helpful to get me started with my Creuset - and barnes and noble.com is definitely the best and cheapest place to acquire this book!
