Even seasoned kitchen wizards will learn a thing or two from this "cookbook." I've cooked the conveyor belt chicken (Excellent and easy!), the fettucini alfredo, the pomodoro sauce, and the persian-ish rice. With the exception of slightly burning my rice, so far all of the recipes have been spot on- delicious AND intuitive.
I've got a new understanding about the nature of salt and why it matters so much. The illustrations are superb. The narrative is sweet and humble, with stories that really help to drive her points across.
The author also is from San Diego-- it is great to support a chef with SD roots.
