I am considered a pretty good cook. I have worked in the restaurant industry for years and have tasted some deelicious food. And, I find Gordon Grimsdale's book to have recipes that work, are classic, and are well-balanced and full of good and complex flavor. Definitely useful and impressive when you want to create your own dishes but are not a sous-chef yourself. I recommend this book and wish he wrote more.
