“Fresh, interesting . . . totally enjoyable . . . in view that 1999, while the chef Gabrielle Hamilton positioned Triscuits and canned sardines at the first menu of her East Village bistro, Prune, she has nonchalantly damaged numerous ideas of the nutrients global. the guideline winning eating place needs to breed an empire. the rule of thumb that cooks who ensue to be girls should still unconditionally help each other. the rule of thumb that fab cooks don’t make nice writers (with her memoir, Blood, Bones & Butter). And now, the guideline that eating place meals should be simplified and prettied up for domestic chefs with a view to produce an invaluable, impossible to resist cookbook. . . . [Prune] is the nearest factor to the bulging loose-leaf binder, caught in a nook of just about each eating place kitchen, ever to be published and certain among fabric covers. (These occur to be a stunning deep, darkish magenta.)”—The manhattan Times
