This cookbook is a love letter to Los Angeles as it exists today -- colorful, global, and packed with flavor. It makes a wonderful coffee table book, as well as an insightful cookbook for the modern & well-traveled palette (even when that means just traveling across L.A.). The binding and layout are top notch, and the plentiful photos not only showcase the recipes extraordinarily well, but are serious artworks in themselves. There's a lot of interesting twists on more classic recipes, like the pistachio cheesecake custards, which are one of my favorite recipes, along with the English pea and dill "hummus". This book makes a beautiful testament to the glories of the Los Angeles' palette.
