. . .Most of the recipes are uncomplicated, and some have as few as five or six ingredients. The chefs provide inspiration as well as helpful tips. -- Syracuse Herald Journal
A fabulous new cookbook serves up recipes by the women on the cutting edge. . .of American restaurant artistry.
Lavishly and luciously produced, with full-color photos throughout. Each of 30 great women chefs presents one full menu, complete with suggested wines. I find great comfort in having a menu organized for me--insecurity, laziness, who knows. I don't always follow them, but just knowing how a professional contrasts flavors and textures is fascinating and fun. . . great to cook from, to look at, and just to read. -- Book Page
Both feminists and restaurant buffs will find much to their liking in this large-format cookbook. As Alice Waters points out in the introduction, it is only fairly recently that women have been allowed to take charge in restaurant kitchens.
In these pages, you can take a tantalizing culinary journey around the country, stopping to 'dine' at 30 restaurants where females wear the top toque. Hear their stories and learn to re-create their signature dishes. -- New York Daily News
