“Fresh, interesting . . . totally enjoyable . . . because 1999, whilst the chef Gabrielle Hamilton positioned Triscuits and canned sardines at the first menu of her East Village bistro, Prune, she has nonchalantly damaged numerous ideas of the meals international. the rule of thumb winning eating place needs to breed an empire. the rule of thumb that cooks who occur to be ladies should still unconditionally aid each other. the rule of thumb that fab cooks don’t make nice writers (with her memoir, Blood, Bones & Butter). And now, the rule of thumb that eating place foodstuff needs to be simplified and prettied up for domestic chefs so that it will produce an invaluable, impossible to resist cookbook. . . .

(These occur to be a stunning deep, darkish magenta.)”—The manhattan Times
