"Combining elements of Julia Child's classical aesthetic and ambition to teach the world how to cook with Naomi Pomeroy's own unique history, style, and verve, this book is an inspiring guide for home cooks who want to up their game in the kitchen. Pomeroy demystifies professional techniques by paring back complex recipes to the building blocks necessary to create them. Her "master lessons" approach will appeal to home cooks of all levels who want to improve their skills. And her nurturing, self-deprecating tone is a welcome change from the ethereal fine-dining tomes that home cooks can't actually cook from or the snapshots of a specific restaurant meant to celebrate the chef's cult of personality. Beginning with sauces, and working from straightforward to more complex recipes, Pomeroy presents a collection of dishes you want to eat every day, including salads, vegetables, fish, pork, meat, and desserts--along with the tools and techniques you need to make each meal shine."

A modern classic for the home cook that is eager to master classic techniques. Pomeroy is a great teacher who encourages you to really settle into the moment and enjoy the process of preparing a recipe from start to finish. She started out doing dinner parties, which is reflected in this book. The recipes are not for busy weeknight cooking, but you could put on a seriously impressive dinner party with any combination of these recipes. Lovely photos, elegant yet modern food, and a non-intimidating approach to pretty intimidating techniques. One of my new favorite cookbooks!
