4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent for the health conscious eater. 1 avril 2012
Par R. Schultz - Publié sur

Purchased two of these cookbooks. One for me and one for a friend. Made my first meals from it tonight and they were very good. The basis of the book is that AD has six items that he considers "staples". These six items are to be made in bulk and kept, then used in the many other recipes that are in the book. Without the staples you would spend considerable time preparing the various recipes AD has in the book. The recipes are not simple, nor are they unbelievably difficult. I made an apple and celery salad, a dried fruit spread as an appetizer, a vegetable medley and an ahi tuna steak recipe so I felt as though I got a good representation of what was in the book. I'm pleased and feel as though in the long run it will be an excellent addition to my cooking.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Lovely book 18 février 2013
Par I. Darren - Publié sur
To the enthusiastic cook this might be the nearest they ever get to working with Alain Ducasse, one of the greatest living chefs of our time.

Through this imposing yet accessible hardback book, one is given direct access to Ducasse and gets the chance to learn a bit about his culinary philosophy and modus operandi as he turns his expert eye to natural, simple, healthy and good-for-you ingredients that can be transformed into some rather spectacular dishes. Proving there is more to Ducasse's repertoire than rich, intricate French dining, the reader can see Ducasse's take on a much more simpler French-dining experience that will still have you wanting more.

In many ways this book is a modern-day curate's egg. It certainly has its quirks such as the cartoon-style imagery that can be found throughout. They just seem to jar the otherwise pleasant flowk, its full-colour photographs and the great text. They didn't work for the reviewer in any case and proved to be a bit of a distraction.

Once you start digging in the book you begin to get on the Ducasse wavelength. Nothing has been taken for granted. Need a chicken stock? Lemons? Ketchup? Yes, there is a Ducasse recipe for that which forms part of its "larder essentials" section. Ducasse is serious about working with only the very best materials and nothing is left to chance. You might think this is fussy and over-the-top but one must presume that Ducasse really does know what he is doing and why. Even a busy chef, no matter how prolific and experienced, would not seek to do unnecessary work if they can avoid doing so as it would be a major draw on their resources. Put your trust in the master.

The book is split into a few distinct chapters - for the larder, condiments, grains and cereals, soups, vegetables, sea, land and desserts. Once you get past your irritation (?) at the quirky images or, as the publicity material calls them "delightful line drawings" you find that the book is easy to navigate and the focus is made on the recipes. The majority of recipes seem to have their own full-colour illustration and every recipe is accompanied by various hints and tips for customisation, techniques or just making things a little better.

There was one disconcerting thing that this reviewer reacted to and so far the jury is out whether to award a little black mark or not. Conventionally a recipe has its ingredients listed in a separate break-out box, whereas in this book they are merged in with the recipe. So to know what you need for a certain dish you have to read through every line of the recipe and extract the information from there. In some ways it is good that you read the "assembly instructions" several times (where justified) yet it makes browsing to be less friendly. A separate broken out ingredients list makes a "do we have this?" or "I must buy X" process a lot quicker when skimming.

And the usual grumbles about the lack of a typical preparation/cooking time estimate should be recorded here. For a book that focusses on the more-healthier foodstuffs one doesn't miss the typical nutritional information so much. But in a book that can feature more complex, involved recipes (or the presumption of same) SHOULD give you a timing estimate, if nothing else than to reassure you that you are not doing things wrong along the way!

At the end of the book is the customary index and this one is fairly comprehensive, if not slightly overladen by the graphical styling. All in all, this is an excellent book. If one views it as an inspirational/aspirational book then some of the niggles lose a little of their weight. However as a practical book these niggles do get in the way. The quality of the content (recipes, advice, etc) is not at question - it is more a question of the packaging. This could be compared to a dish being overly complicated by little flourishes that add nothing to the taste and can even make things appear too fussy. There is no need to hide the content or camouflage it, so it is a little disappointing that some graphic designer has been allowed to run rampant. Ducasse would not let a junior chef run amok with the tomato ketchup to make things look pretty when the food didn't need it, so why do it to the book?

It is still a lovely book. Just a little love-hate relationship that can mirror many real-life relationships with a partner you adore but who does a few things that can wind up you too!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not for the beginner; for experienced cooks only 14 août 2013
Par Bruce L - Publié sur
Since this book is supposed to contain the quicker, simpler recipes of the world famous chef, one would assume that it could be handled by someone with little experience in the kitchen. Unfortunately, not so. While the recipes are, in fact, quite simple, and preparation is not complex or lengthy, Mr. Ducasse leaves out important details that perhaps an experienced chef takes for granted, but that may very well not occur to a novice. Case in point: the simple and straightforward recipe for a provençal standard--- ratatouille.

Almost all recipes containing aubergines, and most containing courgettes, if these watery vegetables are to be sautéed, tell you to salt and then drain them for 30 mins. or so, then rinse and dry before sautéing. Especially in the case of aubergines, this procedure used to be vital, since up until a few years ago, aubergines tended to be bitter, and removing the water also removed the bitterness. From all reports, bitterness is no longer a problem. However, it is still necessary to remove the water, but Mr. Ducasse makes no mention of this procedure. If you neglect to do so, cut the veggies into tiny cubes as illustrated in the photo, and sauté them, in toto, almost 20 minutes, as indicated, you will have watery rather unappetizing mush.

Moreover, Mr. Ducasse tells to to wash the tomatoes, but omits telling you to first remove the skins by plunging them briefly into boiling water and then peeling. So, your aubergine mush will be accented with little pieces of celluloid tomato peel--- yum! He does tell you to peel the peppers, but neglects to tell you how.

Also, aubergines and tomatoes come, of course, in various shapes, colors, and sizes and, frankly, there are some that are more appropriate for ratatouille than others. No help from Mr. D. on this, either.

Such omissions, or rather, assumptions concerning the reader's experience and knowledge are unfortunately not infrequent throughout the book.

In short, if you know a good deal about food preparation and know what you're doing at the butcher's, fishmonger's and vegetable market, there are many excellent recipe's in this book to add to your repetoire. But this is hardly a book to give to someone setting up housekeeping for the first time or to a casual visitor to the kitchen.
