I just picked up this book and I really connected with the message that food should be enjoyed and shared with family and loved ones. I was particularly touched by Mr. Keller’s inclusion of the recipe for the last meal he cooked for his father and why he cooked what he did on that day. It was a powerful reminder of what he is trying to get across to the reader. This isn’t The French Laundry, Under Pressure: Cooking Sous Vide or even Bouchon, all of which are great cookbooks. Rather, it’s a collection of simple recipes made for sharing with others. And that is what makes it great.
