Praise

 Praise for James Peterson:

“The heart of the book really lies in the Vegetable section, where James Peterson highlights, vegetable by vegetable, delicious recipes and photos on preparing them. If you’re even remotely interested in herbs, this section is spectacular, with photos of each herb, information on preparation and storage, and enticing recipes.”
—KQED Bay Area Bites, 4/9/12

“A farmer’s market field guide.”
—menshealth.com, Guy Gourmet
 
“Peterson’s masterful survey of kitchen skills is a refreshing dose of tradition for anyone weary of quick-and-simple recipe books.”
Publishers Weekly 
 
“What I admire about Peterson’s work is the way he makes the chef’s knowledge so clear and accessible to the home cook.” 
—Michael Ruhlman, author of The Elements of Cooking 
 
“Some cookbooks help you get dinner on the table tonight. [Petersons’] help you become a better cook for the rest of your life-—every recipe teaches you something fundamental.”
O Magazine  
 
“It will soon be said—if it hasn’t already—that one could learn everything one needs to know about cooking by simply having and using James Peterson’s books.”
—Peter Reinhart, author of Peter Reinhart’s Artisan Breads Every Day  
 
“Cooking from a James Peterson book is like having a personal cooking coach with you in the kitchen.”
—Bonnie Stern, founder of Bonnie Stern Cooking School
