I've made four of these recipes and have found them to range from really good to awesome. Very creative and unique ideas. I'm working my way through the meat dishes. It's work, but not overwhelming.
For the complaints about complexity, make sure you read the Introduction and "Cooking NOPI at Home" sections. Basically, the main difference between a home kitchen and a restaurant kitchen is prep work. You really need to have the ingredients all laid out, chopped, sliced, diced, etc. You have to read ahead so that you know when you need to, say, "marinate overnight" or "let sit in a cool place for 3 hours". There may be spices you don't have and need to buy. There are sure to be stocks or marinades that you need to prepare ahead of time.In other words, read every recipe from beginning to end before you decide to try it. In then end, it's SOO worth it.-RL
To say I love these chefs would be an understatement. The very idea of Yotam and Ramael's friendship and colaberation over the years is enough for me to buy the book but add to that the quality and uniquness of the offerings, photos and in this case even the typesetting...and I am all in. The book itself is beautifully made with gilding along the edge and a built in bookmark, it will last generations. Chicken livers with bacon and cherries....smoked lamb chops with jalapeño sauce....the eggplant (always the eggplant!) with black garlic, not to mention the Burrata with blood oranges which is so good, I will be testing something similar for my restaurant. Probably not s book for a new cook because of the different ingredients and processes, etc. but, by no means too difficult for an experienced foodie or home cook....even the beginner if they know a friend or family member they can ask questions of.-Amber B.
