The recipes from this book more than prove Ms. Swanson’s skill in the creative kitchen. One of the surest signs I’ve found of a brilliant cook over the years is the ability to take a few, often mild ingredients and turn them into something that is more than the sum of its parts–a wholly new and complex flavor. This she does easily.

Since the recipes are the lesser part of the book by volume and by quality-control, I’d primarily recommend this book to those interested in reading and learning about healthy, sustainable food choices. If you have the experience in the kitchen to trouble-shoot any mistakes you find, then certainly do make the recipes–they’re quite delicious and enjoyable!
The overall judgment is that these recipes are a bit more bland than her others, but definitely good.
