There's a lot of things that are served as Uchi that are simple, and there are many that are quite complicated to reproduce. Unfortunately, this cookbook chooses to focus on many of the most complicated recipes rather than the make-at home ones. If you're looking for the brussels sprouts recipe, for example, you're out of luck. Head to [...] if you're looking. That's the closest I've found...
If this cookbook had been more like Heston Blumenthal at Home, it would have been more approachable to cook from. Additionally, as other reviewers have noted, some of the recipes seem incomplete or that the units are incorrect. If you do a search, for example, on how to make the Uchi brussels sprouts, you'll find that Tyson Cole has given interviews in which he gives basically a completely different recipe for making fish caramel than what's presented in the cookbook. This is true with some of the other recipes as well.
As always with any cookbook focusing on more haute cuisine, the most difficult thing is going to be the same quality of ingredients used by the chefs. Generally, it's just not possible to do as a consumer. However, given that Uchi is at this point, still a very regional restaurant patronized by Texans, it might have been a good addition and quite helpful to have a resource guide in the back on where to at least get some of the produce used by Uchi. If you're in Houston for example, Utility Research Garden is what both Oxheart and Uchi use for a lot of their stuff. So, another reason this cookbook loses stars. Yes, the photography is nice, and you can maybe get the concept of the food from the cookbook, but realistically, there's not too much you can cook out of it.
With that said, I have seen that the recipes are not quite as advertised, and that they are either in incorrect increments, or he has changed his recipes considerably since the time of publication.
It isn't a bad book, and it is great for inspiration.
