    Not nearly as good as their first book.

    Better? Less self conscious. The difficult second book but its like they waited til their 4th restaurant and 6 years after the first book to make it a bit easier. Still allergic to cliche and still obsessed with the more 'organic' fats of fine fowl and the best tubers a pig can find, this entry details the megalomania necessary to succeed in this iteration of the industry . It's freer, it's madder, its more fun Better? Less self conscious.

    For the cooking adventurer in your life, the person who might just want to make Worcestershire from scratch for fun. Probably would be handy in an apocalypse type situation if you were the most powerful person around and had lackeys to cook extravagantly for you. Super fun to browse!

    Appropriate subject for current times, which just highlights the weakness of the book: many of the ingredients are inaccessible. I was only able to try a few recipes but they have been clear and with delicious results.

    "Don't buy your flowers at a grocery store: it can barely sell you good food. It would be miraculous if it lived up to your floral expectations.
