Have purchased a copy for myself and a few family members, I liked this so much. Great recipes (try the Wine Merchant's steak) and wonderful commentary describing specific tips and the origins of each dish. No photos of the dishes (so this isn't food porn), just a cookbook that should get used!

Jacques can do no wrong. Wonderful book...perfect to give as a gift for the foodie in your life. The recipes are delish! Comes with a CD with about an hour of short demonstrations for things such as sharpening knives to creating beautiful butter pads shaped as flowers. Love it.
