The food is the star here, not the author. There are few cook book authors as genuine as Tanis.

I'm a big fan of Tanis and wasn't disappointed with this one. It's the respect that he has for food and eating that's so enticing.

I use this cookbook as a reference for style, presentation and recipes. David Tanis presents his recipes with poetic minimalism. He focuses on fresh foods and also introduces international flare. Recipes are as basic as tomatoes and sea salt, or as instructive as best practices when cooking local game (rabbit, etc). This is also an ideal cookbook for those with food allergies, because Tanis uses fresh, minimal ingredients, limiting the amount of alteration of the recipes. Tanis' instruction and advice make the cookbook an all around joy. To introduce each chapter, Tanis adds in a bit of prose about places he has visited and international techniques/spices that he incorporates. If you are looking for a cookbook with a little bit of education, a little bit of diversity and beautiful presentation, this one will definitely please. I have also given this as a gift with great results.

I generally do not write reviews, but this book was inspirational to me. I was so happy to discover this was not another cookbook with recipes from Chez Panisse. What I found inspirational was that David Tanis writes about how to think about cooking. His book re-frames the way we should think about food. It provides guidance for finding only the freshest ingredients and using them to prepare simple, tasty menus. This book is a "must have" for cooks that want to take their cooking experience to a higher level.
