"A magnificent presentation by two of America’s finest craftsmen, the recipes in this book provide everything that discriminating cooks and their guests could desire in a meal: creativity, wholesomeness, elegance, lightness, and seasonality. Each course demonstrates a superb mastery, from appetizers to desserts and pastries–once the sole province of the French." –Raymond Blanc, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons
