This cookbook is a real treasure.  Great chefs, amazing photgraphs, and easy to master modifications of amazing dishes by master chefs.

This is one of the best new cookbooks I've read in years. It's so much more than just new recipes,  though it's got great ones. If you admire any of these chefs it is worth checking out.  This book provides special insight into each chef's skills, knowledge, and personality.

Wonderful introduction not only to a number of helpful kitchen techniques, but also to great chefs and their cookbooks.  There are a number of cookbooks I use EVERY WEEK that I learnt about, and got to try, through the chapters in this book. Nice read, to boot!

I have been cooking for a long time and did not find this book helpful as the title suggests. It is more like a book about cooking with famous chefs. I so wanted to learn so new tricks in the kitchen. I would thumb through it if you are buying it for a new cook.
