"With no apparent effort, Hazan manages to deliver everything you want in a cookbook. The recipes are easy to understand and to follow. They are almost invariably delicious, based on a purist's respect for the integrity of ingredients, flavors and textures.... Hazan, a writer of great charm, makes a persuasive case for each dish in a brief, informative headnote--a little preamble that appears before the recipe. She is not shy about giving her opinions" (The New York Times Book Review, William Grimes).
