Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Pomiane’s ten-minute cookbook is amazingly useful . . . I love all the quaintness that the Hymans have not tried to adapt or change.” – M. F. K. Fisher
M.F.K. Fisher
"Pomiane's ten-minute cookbook is amazingly useful... I love all the quaintness that the Hymans have not tried to adapt or change."
Elizabeth David
"I love the Docteur de Pomiane's work... To me his brief explanations, his methodically organized recipes, unburdened with excess detail but invariably embodying the vital touch of the artist, are worth volumes of weighty expertise. I know of no cookery writer who has a greater mastery of the captivating phrase."

    Simple and Witty

    I bought this book after I read about it in the New York Times, and it has quickly become one of my favorites. De Pomaine's recipes are simple and easy to prepare, delicious when they're done--and the principles he lays out at the beginning really help one get a nice meal on the table in ten minutes (okay--it takes me 15, but still!) The best part, however, is the witty style, which makes it as entertaining as a novel.
