"Billed as a master-level cookbook, this clothbound beauty is definitely aimed at more ambitious home cooks . . . Inspired by the unique dining experience at his eponymous restaursant, Piege encourages mixing and matching the recipes to create original menus. And with that same spirit of freedom, he wants his readers to make his dishes their own, calling that an essential part of cooking."
"The cliche that you can't tell a book by its cover has never been more true than in the case of this all-gray volume, whose cover hides within some of the most stunning French cuisine of a contemporary Michelin-starred master."
