From Chef Scott
Although the recipes are "uncomplicated" (as the title says), they are deeply creative and flexible. Whether you're just learning your way around a kitchen or have been around the culinary block more than a time or two - you're sure to find something interesting in this book. In particular, I really like the "flex" ideas; alternative ingredients that provide you both flexibility and ideas about how flavors can go together, sometimes in new and surprising ways.
