    A Unique Cook Book for all times and all people

    This unique book, signed by Shannon Bennett, is my most prized cookbook: a not insignificant recommendation from someone who is under threat of death should she bring another cook book into the house already awash with hundreds of cookbooks. But for this book, mortal combat seemed a triflingly small price to pay. Residing permanently on my bedside table, I read it often as well as cook from it. Unlike an increasing number of do-this-or-die-you-fool books begrudgingly pumped out by some highly experienced chefs, Mr Bennett tantalises the reader & their tastebuds and encourages one to go forth to the kitchen and cook. He is a consummate professional as he puts back into his art and passion by generously sharing his knowledge, techniques as well as educating the reader as to the philosophy behind French cooking. The recipes are of varying levels of difficulty are helpfully organised according to ingredients. All the dishes have a photo of the final dish - an additonal help. My favourites have to be Cepes Risotto,the Pistchio Souffle and the easy Tomato Essence which, with the addition of gelatine, I found makes a great cold gelee to have with a cold prawns. Vue de Monde in Melbourne is somewhere you start out for to indulge in a great meal but ultimately you have a great life experience which stays with you. For me, the menu provided illumination in that it opened a window finally allowing me insight into to why the French take food and cooking so seriously. The service side of the meal was seamless, efficient and evidenced quality assurance taken to the highest level. My only complaint: the meal ended and we had to leave, all of us listing slightly to port from one course too many. Gourmet Traveller has just named Vue de Monde Restaurant of the year for the second consecutive year. For cooks at all levels, your collection of French cookbooks cannot be complete without this book.
