Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply delicious I have made quite a few recipes from this book now and haven't had anything I haven't liked yet. I especially like the chocolate cake. The recipes are easy to follow, and require ingredients that are either in your cupboard or are east to find at the grocers. A welcome addition to my kitchen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Meet to New Book I had the privilege of meeting Chef Michael at my Culinary School back in 2004 He is so knowledgeable and inspirational his technique is easy to follow and his books are written so that those who don't cook can read and follow along. I enjoy gifting his books to family and friends who find the kitchen challenging.
