"A cookbook by Paula Wolfert is cause for celebration. Ms. Wolfert may be America's most knowledgeable food person and her books are full of insight, passion and brilliance." -- Anthony Dias Blue, CBS Radio, NY"I think she's one of the finest and most influential food writers in this country. Her recipes are done with incredible accuracy. She brings a sense of wonder to matters of taste. She also has an uncommonly fine palate. In sum, Paula is one of the leading lights in contemporary gastronomy." -- Craig Claiborne"Ms. Wolfert does not just writer recipes; she writes about the recipes, and about the food, and about the people who make the food." -- Trish Hall, "New York Times"
